Besides the Haditha case, ABC and NBC offered Iraqi updates. NBC's Lisa Myers investigated the lawlessness of private contractors hired to provide security in Iraq. She interviewed a pair of fired employees of Triple Canopy who claimed to be eyewitnesses to their supervisor's willful shooting spree against civilians on his final day on the job. "This guy was obviously unstable, obviously out of control. We honestly felt fear for our lives," said one.
ABC's Terry McCarthy (no link) focused on Baghdad politics: Shiite leader Muqtada al-Sadr "may have blinked first," he speculated, and decided to end his boycott of parliament. "He appears to have become nervous that he may be left out" of a new coalition.
