PRESS RELEASE FROM BLACKWATER SECURITY CONSULTING
We grieve today for the loss of our colleagues and we pray for their families. The names of the victims will not be released out of respect for their families. The graphic images of the unprovoked attack and subsequent heinous mistreatment of our friends exhibits the extraordinary conditions under which we voluntarily work to bring freedom and democracy to the Iraqi people. Coalition forces and civilian contractors and administrators work side by side every day with the Iraqi people to provide essential goods and services like food, water, electricity and vital security to the Iraqi citizens and coalition members. Our tasks are dangerous and while we feel sadness for our fallen colleagues, we also feel pride and satisfaction that we are making a difference for the people of Iraq.--Blackwater Security Consulting is a strategic division of Blackwater USA.
My prediction for the new liberal radio program is that it will probably have high ratings in the early going. Of course, that development will attract lots of media attention. However, the initial audience will comprise many conservatives who are curiosity seekers or looking for laughs (a tee-hee and haha, if you will). The conservatives curiosity will wear off and many liberal listeners will not stick around because of their lack of desire for issue based, in depth discussion; shouting "Bush is stupid!" can only take you so far.
The bottom line: Al Franken's Air America will stick around but will never match the ratings bonanza of conservative talk radio. You can listen to The Franken Factor, Michael Moore, Janeane Garofalo and others on the following radio stations:
New York - WLIB 1190 AM
Los Angeles - KBLA 1580 AM
Chicago - WNTD 950 AM
Portland, OR- KPOJ 1620 AM
Inland Empire, CA- KCAA 1050 AM
XM Satellite Radio - Channel 167
Remember: LIBERAL TALK RADIO IS SO BAD, IT'S FUNNY!!
Al Jazeera does not even mention how civilian contractors were mutilated in Falluja
In a separate incident also west of Baghdad, four foreigners were killed when their vehicles came under attack, setting them on fire, reported Aljazeera.
One witness said fighters opened fire on the vehicles in Falluja. The US army said the foreigners were contractors.
Update: Friends, others discussing what happened in Falluja include, Daily Newsbrief
