EASON JORDAN FLAP - BBC producer killed in Somalia!

Has anyone told CNN's Eason Jordan there are American troops in Somalia? This could be the biggest story since Kerry's Christmas gun run to Cambodia.

XINHUA online reports ...

A BBC producer has been shot dead in Somalia as the country's exiled Government attempts to move into the capital, Mogadishu.

BBC producer Kate Peyton, 39, had only been in Somalia for a few hours and was standing out the front of the Sahafi Hotel in Mogadishu when she was hit.

We must ask, how could this have happened unless the American military-industrial complex was in Somalia checking on oil reserves and laying the groundwork for a preemptive strike against their undemocratic leaders?

All kidding aside, I mean no disrespect to Ms. Peyton or her family and friends ... her loss was needless and there are many grieving it at this time. My condolences to all of them. I just can't pass up an opportunity to lay into a pinstriped jackass.
