Dead whistle blowers

Here's an interesting paragraph from Juan Cole's post on the 1 to 2 billion dollars recently discovered missing in Iraq.

...There is also the unsolved case of two US contractors who warned last fall of massive fraud in the ministry of defense. One wrote to Senator Rick Santorum about it, who in turn went to US SecDef Donald Rumsfeld. The contractors were driving near Taji when their car was rammed and then they were shot multiple times. Their personal effects were photographed and put up at a radical Salafi website. But then anyone can post to a website....

These mercenaries are not the only people posing credible threats to the Cheney administration that have prematurely ended up dead. You can find a partial list at Bush Body Count.

I think you have a good blog here. Keep it up.

I found this website that is on drive and stay safe .

With everyone looking to have fun, any information on drive and stay safe is PRICELESS. Imagine giving someone you love the opportunity to LIVE by giving them the proper stuff on drive and stay safe TODAY.

Nothing much to add, but I figured you deserved a comment from someone other than a blogspambot.

After all, supergee is linking to you.
