Trigger-Happy Cowboys save Polish ambassador

Blackwater copter rescues Polish ambassador

A daring ambush of bombs and gunfire left Poland’s ambassador pinned down in a burning vehicle today before being pulled to safety and airlifted in a rescue mission by the embattled security firm Blackwater USA.

Blackwater was not providing security for the convoy. They were called in by the US State Department.

I’m sure this will get all sorts of sensationalized coverage by the news outlets that have been so happy to slam private security contractors in general and Blackwater in particular. (via Instapundit)
