Yesterday's events are not likely to help matters

More death in Baghdad by contract security forces.

Joshua Partlow and Sudarsan Raghavan of the Washington Post tell us, Guards Kill Two Women In Iraq: Australian-Run Firm's Convoy Fires on Vehicle.
Private security guards from an Australian-run firm opened fire on a white sedan in downtown Baghdad on Tuesday afternoon, killing two Iraqi Christian women who were driving home from work.
I guess the only good news to come out of this is that our friends in Moyock weren't involved.

I keep hearing tales about how certain security firms have "never lost a protectee." I ask only one thing: at what cost?

Too high a cost, all the way around, say I.
