Again, more information that you won’t hear on the evening news since their reporters are too scared to go out with our American heroes….

Iraqi Forces Divert Mission To Aid Kidnapped Citizen – CentCom

BALAD – During a pre-dawn raid in Baghdad on July 26 to capture a ‘death squad’ member, Iraqi forces diverted their mission to free an Iraqi citizen who was abducted and being beaten by two unknown assailants.  

As the Iraqi forces moved toward their original objective in the Abu Ghurayb area of Baghdad, they discovered an Iraqi citizen who was bound and being beaten by two men while he lay on the ground. 

The Iraqi assault force surprised the kidnappers and an exchange of gunfire ensued.  During the gun fight, one of the kidnappers and the hostage were wounded while the second kidnapper fled the scene.  Both were treated on the scene by a U.S. Army Special Forces medic who was with the Iraqi forces in an advisory capacity.

The hostage and the kidnapper were evacuated immediately to a nearby U.S. military medical facility for emergency treatment.  Both are expected to recover.  The hostage was abducted at approximately 10 p.m. on July 25 as he returned home from work.

No Iraqi or coalition forces were injured during this operation.

This news item didn’t exist for the MSM because there’s no video.

New Commenting Rules

I’ve taken inspiration from James at OutsideTheBeltway after reading this posting (h/t: Instapundit).  He has a great set of commenting policies that as of today I’m going to enforce here at GayPatriot.

Commenting and Trackbacks: Commenting and trackback/pingback capability is provided to encourage thoughtful discussion of the ideas posted on this site. We welcome open debate and viewpoints that differ from those of the post authors. That said, we wish to keep the conversation civil and the following policies, subject to change without notice, apply:

  • Remember that the people under discussion are human beings. Comments that contain personal attacks about the post author or other commenters will be deleted. Repeated violators will be banned. Challenge the ideas of those with whom you disagree, not their patriotism, decency, or integrity.
  • The use of profanity stronger than that normally permitted on network television is prohibited. A substantial number of people read this site from an office or in a family environment.

And, for good measure, it is probably time to again reference the “About GayPatriot” page so everyone can review our full disclosure statements.
