Four Helicopters Shot Down in Two Weeks

ABC News and MSNBC are reporting that pilots are changing some procedures and flying tactics after four helicopters have been shot down over Iraq in just two weeks. The helicopters were shot down from ground based enemy fire.

MSNBC tells us that this is the first time the military has acknowledged that these crashes were caused by enemy fire.

The ABC News article said the military could not expand on its new tactics for security reasons. Also interesting to look at in the ABC News article is the quoting they use, and how they use it. For the most part, "said" always comes after the quote.
