Did anyone else hear this, and does anyone know the people involved?


I heard about that on the way in to work this A.M., but forgot to post about it. Not positive as to the
company, but I have a sneakin' feeling that I'm going to be hearing about somebody that I've worked
with before......

Stratfor says that the firm was " Triple Canopy"



This was a well-planned and -executed attack. The device, a wireless remotely detonated IED probably made from a 152mm or 155mm artillery round, was placed on a bridge so that there was no chance of avoiding it. The subsequent blast blew one vehicle, an armored white SUV, completely off the bridge. Three personnel from Triple Canopy died instantly and one died after being transported to a British field hospital. The convoy's other vehicles were not damaged.
