UNITED STATES CAUGHT IN IRAQ

by staff reports It’s happened again – allied troops being caught with
bombs. This time it is the Americans captured in the act of setting off a
car bomb in Baghdad. Last time, as FMNN reported only weeks ago, two British
soldiers, apparently working for British intelligence, were caught near
Baghdad similarly equipped.
According to the Mirror-World, “A number of Iraqis apprehended two
Americans disguised in Arab dress as they tried to blow up a booby-trapped
car in the middle of a residential area in western Baghdad on Tuesday. ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â¦
Residents of western Baghdad’s al-Ghazaliyah district [said] the people had
apprehended the Americans as they left their Caprice car near a residential
neighborhood in al-Ghazaliyah on Tuesday afternoon. Local people found they
looked suspicious so they detained the men before they could get away. That
was when they discovered that they were Americans and called the ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‚Â¦ police.”
Just as in the British incident, the Iraq police arrived at approximately
the same time as allied military forces – and the two men were removed from
Iraq custody and wisked away before any questioning could take place.
The incidents are said to be fueling both puzzlement and animosity among
Iraqis. Yet the motivation behind such activities remains formally unknown
since in both cases the soldiers involved have been removed with an
efficiency that has quashed any attempts at an interrogation.
I only found one mention of this incident on the Free Market News site, but
we will see how quick it makes its rounds. Perhaps other reporters are looking
into it now.
