Editorial Note on "Premature Detonation"

Faithful readers, I took down the "Premature detonation" clip after reading the comments and watching the tape again, especially the last few lines of audio. Babs, it was not Coalition soldiers who got zapped. Sous, it is confusing, but it looks more like the casualties were more likely Iraqi volunteers who have come out of the woodwork in recent months to help the ISF and Coalition forces hunt the bad guys. If I am correct, the clip better illustrates what not to do when dealing with unexploded ordinance than anything else. It is bad enough when the bad guys take the good guys out, it is worse when the good guys inadvertently take themselves off the board. Thanks for asking the questions--they help keep this blog one of the best out there.

LMC - Thanks for the correction. I am so happy to hear it wasn't our men and women being blown to kingdom come. However, if it was Iraqi forces I am terribly saddened.
