1. Trying to drum up sympathy ala the "protect our troops" faux patriotism?

and thus make this case not about the murder of civilians but about soldiers "doing their job" in the course of war?

3. The CBS news radio breaks at the top & bottom of the hour referred to them as guardsmen.
I heard that repeated all day today, twice every hour, on our AA/ Nova M affiliate.

4. Despicable.
And not even close to accurate, IIRC before becoming mercenaries for Blackwater they were Marines and Army.
AA/Nova need FAR better radio news breaks. When I last listened they were AP Radio News (their propaganda was insulting, target market 8th grade intelligence, at best), are they now CBS?
