Insider Quote: 'Getting off the X' in Iraq

"My security colleagues would call it 'getting off the X'. [...] We run. We go. We do not stand and fight. We will execute a high-speed J-turn and we will get as far away from the attackers as we possibly can."

Patrick Kennedy
Under Secretary of State for Management, U.S. Department of State

I see the PSC/PSD whatever we're calling it these days are capitalizing nicely on the paranoia sure to grip operations in Iraq. It's like 2004 all over again. Magical.
