Private Guards Repel Attack on U.S. Headquarters (washingtonpost.com) A few things struck me about this story.
In Sunday's fighting, Shiite militia forces barraged the Blackwater commandos, four MPs and a Marine gunner with rocket-propelled grenades and AK-47 fire for hours before U.S. Special Forces troops arrived.
But a few grafs later...
A Defense Department spokesman said that there were no military reports about the opening hours of the siege on CPA headquarters in Najaf because there were no military personnel on the scene.That would be except for the four MPs and the Marine gunner, right? Or do they not count?
