4. Traffic accident?
I wonder. We all know that the Baghdad airport is one of the most dangerous places for US troops to be. It's a shameful fact: the US occupiers STILL have not been able to secure the roads to the airport. If you think about it, it's incredible.

TOTAL FAILURE

5. My understanding is, anyone who wants to live drives 100 mph. . .
down the road from the airport, so yeah, I can see a traffic accident killing multiple soldiers, especially on a road such as that, which must be pitted and scarred from bombardments and explosive discharges.

7. Usually, it's determined to be an accident months after
it was determined to be a death resulting in an act of bravery against the evil doers.

Karen Meredith said it took five months to get her sons personal belongings back. And more than a year after being informed of her sons death, the Army told her that Ballard was killed in an accident, not by the enemy, as initially reported, she said.
