Quotes

"It was pretty courageous on his part to stop and get involved" Johnson said. "Not everybody would have done that."
On its website, CACI explains its defense: "We have cooperated fully with every government investigation, and we made clear that we would not condone or tolerate illegal or inappropriate behavior by any employee when engaged in CACI business. While three former employees have been cited in various reports in connection with disputed incidents in Iraq, no CACI employee took part or appears in any of the horrific photos released from Abu Ghraib.”"
..."One local company in Damascus that sells to many area nurseries is Cedarglen Floral Company," Carol Savonen said. "They sell organic vegetable and annual, perennial and herb starts to many nurseries around the Salem area."
