"Iraqi Air Force evacuating besieged American contractors"
"A U.S. contractor in Iraq told WND [World Net Daily] the Iraqi Air Force has begun evacuations from Balad Air Force Base, where 200 American contractors were trapped by the al-Qaida-inspired jihadists who have seized control of two cities and are now threatening Baghdad. Frank Biggs, a contractor with Sallyport Global, told WND through a Skype instant message that he was transported from Balad to Baghdad and was communicating from a C-130 preparing to take off to Dubai. Biggs said 300 in total have been evacuated from Balad and another 100 are still awaiting airlift"
From bad to worse, right?
