This Blog Is Moving

Greetings. After this weekend, this Take Our Country Back Blog will be moving to the new web site. Too many conservatives are getting zapped by the intolerant dweebs of the Obama Goons and seeing that this editing platform is a free site, Blogger can do pretty much what it feels like doing. Hence, I now have a paid site and will be migrating the last 1400+ posts shortly.

So, one day, you just may click this page somewhere and it will show up as "private". It has been fun but the intolerant Czarbie Goon Squads are brain dead idiots. They can come play at the new site which I OWN outright.

Coalition forces target al-Qaeda foreign terrorist facilitators, media networks

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Coalition forces detained 10 suspected terrorists today during operations targeting al-Qaeda networks in central and northern Iraq.

During an operation in Baghdad, Coalition forces captured a wanted individual believed to be associated with a foreign terrorist and weapons facilitation network. Reports indicate the wanted individual is related to one of the key facilitators in the network, who is also allegedly involved in al-Qaeda media and propaganda operations. In addition to the wanted individual, two suspected terrorists were detained during the operation.

Also in the capital city, Coalition forces captured another wanted individual believed to be an Ansar al-Islam leader involved in media and propaganda operations. The wanted individual is reportedly associated with numerous terrorist leaders involved in media operations who operate in and outside of Iraq.

During a series of operations in Samarra, Coalition forces detained five suspected terrorists while targeting another alleged foreign terrorist facilitator. Reports indicate the targeted individual is associated with an al-Qaeda leader who facilitates logistics, to include finances and weapons.

Farther north in Mosul, Coalition forces detained one suspect while targeting an alleged terrorist responsible for coordinating and directing numerous attacks in the region.

"We are targeting terrorists at every level of their networks," said Navy Capt. Vic Beck, MNF-I spokesman. "Foreign terrorists who come to Iraq with the help of al-Qaeda and commit murderous acts against the people have no place in the future of this country."

U.S. Soldiers detain suspected insurgent south of Baghdad
Multi-National Division - Center PAO

BAGHDAD - Soldiers from Troop A, 3rd Squadron, 1st Cavalry Regiment, detained one suspected insurgent in a night raid just south of a local shopping area known as "Four Corners," in Nahrwan, Iraq, Dec. 19.

According to Sgt. 1st Class James Mattwig, from Ashtabula, Ohio, a platoon sergeant in Troop A, a local resident called the troop with information that a known insurgent was seen visiting his cousin for the Muslim holiday Eid al-Adha.

"Once we got the call, we got a platoon together and prepared to capture the individual at his cousin's house," Mattwig said.

Mattwig explained the targeted suspected insurgent ran from the house; however, Troop A Soldiers detained another known insurgent.

"Although we didn't get the individual we were after, we didn't fail," he said. "We cleared three houses and found another guy on the squadron's top 10 list."

"The tip leading to the capture of the suspected insurgent is a demonstration of trust between 3-1 Cav. Regt. Soldiers and local residents," said Capt. Troy Thomas, commander of Troop A, from Litchfield, Minn.

Troop A, 3-1 Cav. Regt. is assigned to the 3rd Heavy Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division, and has been deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom since March.
