Sworn Statement by Blackwater Shooter Leaked to News Media

ABC News is running a story about the 9/16 shooting incident in Baghdad based on a statement given by "Paul," a turret gunner in the Blackwater convoy, to State Department officials two days after the incident: "A guard from the US security firm Blackwater says his motorcade came under fire and that he feared for his life in a deadly shootout in Iraq, ABC television reported on Wednesday."

ABC even posted a copy of Paul's statement.

There has been no mention of this matter so far on the Blackwater Facts Blog, which I interpret as meaning that the leaked statement either didn't come from "Paul" or, if it did, it wasn't coordinated with the other Blackwater employees under investigation.
