KIRKUK, Iraq Two men linked to the emplacement of an improvised explosive device in the western Kirkuk province were captured July 23 by Coalition ground forces with support from a team of helicopters patrolling overhead.
Soldiers from Company D, 2nd Battalion, 27th Infantry Regiment, 25th Infantry Division observed one of the men emplacing what was later confirmed as an improvised explosive device and attempting to escape in a sedan driven by the other. A scout weapons team of Kiowa Warrior helicopters from the 2nd Squadron, 6th Cavalry Regiment, 25th Combat Aviation Brigade prevented their escape as the ground forces moved in to detain the two men.
Coalition Soldiers also confiscated two AK-47 rifles and two magazine laden vests from inside the vehicle. Components of the IED were recovered for further analysis and the explosive ordnance was destroyed on site.
The 2nd Battalion, 27th Infantry Regiment is part of the 3rd Infantry Brigade Combat Team based out of Schofield Barracks, Hawaii. The 2nd Squadron, 6th Cavalry Regiment is also based out Schofield Barracks and habitually works with 3IBCT.
What happened to the allah akbur,72 virgins,martyr,koran crap?
Maybe osama,taking a dirt nap,should come out with a new video,obviously these 2 dummie terrorists didn't get the message.
Information, bet they gave it up too.
I hope they weren’t harmed in any way or our soldiers would be in big trouble.
Wasn’t talking about our Brave Troops,I was talking about the chikenshit terrorists,read it again;)
I’m sure that the A.C.L.U. is filing a protest on thier behalf.
damn good thing they weren’t Marines
You do have to wonder if the intelligence value is high enough to make it worthwhile taking them alive.
In a way, it’s too bad our troops are so stunningly efficient and effective at what they do. Because otherwise, we might be willing to go Medieval on their dumb butts as a matter of routine and fewer of the SOBs would survive.
Now you're talking.
You mean murdering terrorists
It would be worth it to show us boiling them in pig fat. That might be the only deterrent for this type of criminal. Of course, blowing up the nearest city, village, or town where IEDs go off might have the same value, but we don't have the balls to do it.
Treat these folks to pork chops and then send them to Allah.
Bestowing kindness on the evil visits cruelty on the good.
My new tagline.
A Freeper has a son in that unit. I just freepmailed him the posting.
My son is in Charlie Company. Have not heard from him since last week. They are working their buns off on patrols.
The Surge is Working and Victory is on the March
Pray for W and Our Freedom Fighters
Of course, as much as those very low level creeps can.
After intensive interrogation, public execution by firing squad.
Time to send a message. Work for Al Qaeda or Iran, and you take a dirt nap.
Oh, and liberally spray pig fat on the bodies prior ro burial. They fear that more than death.
Thank you a-r. He is no longer with D Company. He has been reassigned. Still with 2-27, though.
