Looks like Abdul's workman comp premiums will increase greatly, along with recruiting costs.

Who is funding the Islamic State of Iraq? The Persians or the Saudis?

Unfortunately, in training, sooner or later you HAVE to let the students work with real explosives. You don't want their first attempt at a real bomb to be on their first mission.
