    Remember Zim, according to your own previous posts regarding Bush's "where are those WOMDs", not enough time has past.

    You can joke about the Titanic, you can almost joke about AIDS (see southpark), but you cant joke about OBL.

    I thought it was funny. I was so excited to see the news, and then...

    Maybe I just have a sick sense of humor.

    The non-fact that Osama was captured in Iraq, thereby making the connection between Osama-Saddam-Iraq and suggesting that it's external terrorists rather than flower-throwing iraqis desecrating those 4 US mercenaries?

    some joke!!

    They weren't mercenaries, but they definitely weren't "contractors" either. I personally think they were serving some kind of military function, possibly intelligence, but that doesn't change the fact that I hope Fallujah spontaneously combusts. It will be interesting to see what happens now, as this whole thing is eerily reminiscent of Somalia 1993.

    that's it, yeah.

    any tie-in to fallujah's violence (not just yesterday) would be a thin reference to the surrounding of the "high value target al qaeda target" in pakistan from last week (or the week before).

    according to abcnews, they were employees of a private security firm w/ a big contract in iraq (i forgot the name, but it contains the word "Black"). they also reported that the company had issued a statement on its website mourning the loss.

    fwiw, this is the company that supplies paul bremer's security. not sure why the marines aren't doing that. abcnews also pointed out that the cost of private security in iraq is some 15% of the overall budget. again, i pose my marines question.
