    I'd just like to point that much of the late Steven Vincent's writings are very much worth reading.

    I wonder what it was about his column his killers didn't like.

    My prayers are with his family, and with the interpreter who worked with him.

    I suspect that his killers didn't even know that he was a journalist.

    The run of the mill terrorist operating in Iraq can't read english. They do however recognize a foreigner when they see one and those are the enemy(TM).

    Makes sense.

    But they do watch and listen to Al Jazeera, who broadcasts objectionable news stories and op eds from the west.
