- "The reports we got from members of the public, Iraqi security personnel and government officials, as well as our own research, leads to a markedly different scenario than the American version. There was a bomb blast. But it was too far away to pose any danger to the Blackwater guards, and their State Department charges. We have found no Iraqi present at the scene who saw or heard sniper fire."
Consider also McClatchy's informative and disturbing coverage of Blackwater given this week as compared to NPR's "balanced" coverage.
