Kill those helping you. Brilliant.

Of note from the Associated Press and appearing at Military.com.

For the first time we have a rough number of people killed who were trying to help rebuild Iraq:

Navy Cmdr. Duane G. Wolfe was among the 719. He was not fighting the insurgency, but it was fighting him.

He was among the army of lawyers, engineers, contractors and others who paid a heavy price trying to put a broken Iraq and its shattered economy back together.

What in heaven’s name is up with killing people trying to put your country back together? We save you from a tyrant who had killed scores and this is what we get?
