According to military representatives close to the Maupin family who spoke to WLWT, sources are reporting that the Al Jazeera TV network has a videotape of Maupin being shot.
The military has not changed Maupin's status, and the report of his death has not been confirmed.

1) If you're not in the military and you're an American citizen, you are out of Iraq, period. It's simply not safe to have computer people, or engineers or whatever roaming around there. They're American, they're probably not armed... it's like smearing yourself in blood and jumping in a shark tank.
2) Have some servicemen stake out the headquarters of Al-Jazeera et al. When some little bastard comes to drop off the tape of a hostage being executed, snatch him up. He'll tell you where the action is going down real fast when you threaten to pour hot lead down his throat.
3) Develop a system of transport where groups such as Army Cooks are not travelling through dangerous areas alone. "They got seperated from the convoy" is unacceptable. Radio communication should be improved there. As soon as someone breaks off, stop and correct it. There should be no opportunity for such things to happen. This isn't Disneyland and no one should be permitted to EVER wander off alone.
Are these suggestions disturbing? Maybe. I never thought I'd hear myself suggesting some of them
but you must understand that this is not a normal enemy.

WE, however, argue over whether they get Legal representation,
and are Mirandized properly?
I'm getting sick....
