    Ooooh, I remember that attitude, very common between 2001- and 2003.

    A headline reading Blackwater refused to help in plan to kill Jihadist would be a far more newsworthy story.

    Notwithstanding the desired endstate, I would suggest that the conditions, performance and standards of any US black op today, would benefit from an East Atlantic litmus test.
