The Unicef Photo of the Year


It shows Mohammed, 40, with his new 11-year-old wife, Ghulam. Taken by US photographer Stephanie Sinclair, it was named Unicef Photo of the Year yesterday.

Might make sense if Blackwater actually worked for the UN.

The NYT has complained to the State Dept. that someone from Blackwater shot their dog in Iraq.


Actually, Blackwater would be perfect for stopping the genocide going on in Darfur. The latest issue of Forbes has a good editorial on why.

That's awesome. We just need to better understand their culture, I say.
