The Washington Post carries this quote from a military person on background on the Blackwater situation. "'This is a nightmare,' said a senior U.S. military official. 'We had guys who saw the aftermath, and it was very bad. This is going to hurt us badly. It may be worse than Abu Ghraib, and it comes at a time when we're trying to have an impact for the long term.' The official was referring to the prison scandal that emerged in 2004 in which U.S. soldiers tortured and abused Iraqis."
Meanwhile, the New York Times writes, "MoveOn.org said yesterday that it paid The New York Times $77,508 after the newspaper revealed that its advertising department had undercharged the organization for an advertisement that ran two weeks ago and proved controversial."
