Most Wanted Terrorist in Baghdad with help of local citizen!


The last five days have been very busy for our troops. In another series of events they recovered over 17,000 kilograms of explosives:

“CAMP AL TAQADDUM, Iraq – Marines from Weapons Company, Battalion Landing Team 3rd Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment, 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit, discovered more than 17,000 kilograms of explosives in a series of weapons cache finds northeast of Thar Thar Dam July 4-6.

In Baghdad they captured the most wanted Terrorist and our troops recovered a weapons cache. Both were made after local civilians in each case called in a report to the troops:

AL-DHOUR, Iraq – With two well-timed phone calls, Iraqi civilians made some Soldiers’ day July 9.Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division (Light Infantry) out of Fort Drum, N.Y., and alerted them to a cache south of the village of Al-Dhour, Iraq, south of Baghdad.
The troop responded, located the buried weapons, and was only five minutes into the process of digging them up when they got another call.
A man claimed he had the 2nd BCT’s top high-value target and would deliver him to coalition custody. The man and Capt. Adam Sawyer, Troop Commander, agreed on a pickup site.
The Soldiers hastily re-buried the cache and moved out, and when the vehicle arrived, they stopped it and took the most wanted man and two other men into custody.

Troop Commander Capt. Sawyer made the following comments:
“All of this was possible because of sources we’ve developed,
through local-national engagements and working with the residents of the area,” he said. “It’s our work with the people in these areas, our relations with them, paying off.”

The current operations that have been on-going throughout Iraq for several weeks now have made remarkable inroads with the Iraqi civilians as far as building up their trust and thus gaining their help. In many areas, the local citizens are happy with the arrival and subsequent routing of Al-Qaeda and life is returning to normal. However, nothing seems to draw favorable reporting from the media back home. It continues to report nothing but failure! What has to happen before the media will stop its biased reporting and tell the American public the truth?
