Cut off in Najaf

"Good footage from a Blackwater security team here.

Interesting background from an anonymous and third-hand source (I cannot vouch for its provenance but maybe a reader can somewhere):

''The 5-man Blackwater crew that was assinged to CPA Najaf were coming under heavy small arms and mortar fire, the city was being taken over by insurgents. The police stations and hospitals were taken over as well, after a day of fighting off hundreds of insurgents the city had been completely overrun, with the CPA in the heart of the city and no way out."
