I'd like to see that headline on this story.

"There is no doubt in my mind, that if our security adviser had not returned fire, everyone in our vehicle would have been killed," said Correspondent Michael Holmes. "This was not an attempted robbery, they were clearly trying to take us out."

I am traveling right now. One of the rare time I actually watch CNN (some hotels only offer CNN). I saw this story yesterday while sweating away on the stairclimber. Anderson Cooper did not mention any "policy" by CNN to "stay out of the fray." I immediately suspected that some were armed. One carload made it and one did not. However, no mention was made of the "affirmative defense" by the survivors. But they we all gushy about the martyrs. It is pretty sad when they can not pull their head out of their nether regions long enough to actually attribute the survival of persons by fighting back in a very dangerous place.
