  •  Steven McGovern and James Hunt II (none)
    "Steven McGovern and James Hunt II went to Iraq after leaving a Kentucky National Guard special forces unit. Both men served stints in Afghanistan with the Guard."

    "McGovern, of Lexington, was among 11 civilians killed Thursday when their helicopter was shot down near Baghdad, his stepfather, William Hawkins of Lexington, said Friday.

    Six of the dead were Americans employed by Blackwater Security Consulting, a subsidiary of security contractor Blackwater USA of Moyock, N.C."

    "McGovern, 24, had just started his second mission in Iraq, his stepfather said.

    "He was just doing what he loved to do," Hawkins said in a brief phone interview.

    The family was informed of McGovern's death by Blackwater."

    We're beyond Orwellian - it's all Rovian now. And that dear friend, is much worse.
