Blonde English-Speaking Terrorists Operating in Iraq
More information was released about the abduction and death of US soldiers by English-speaking terrorists in Iraq last week.
…Yet, Speaker Pelosi, John Murtha and democrats would rather we fight these terrorists in the streets of America?
The AP reports:
The U.S. military confirmed a report earlier Friday by The Associated Press that three of the soldiers were dead and one was mortally wounded with a gunshot to the head when they were found in a neighboring province, about 25 miles from the compound where they were captured. A fifth soldier was killed in the initial attack on the compound.
The brazen assault, 50 miles south of Baghdad, was conducted by nine to 12 gunmen posing as an American security team, the military confirmed. The attackers traveled in black GMC Suburban vehicles (the type used by U.S. government convoys), had American weapons, wore new U.S. military combat fatigues, and spoke English, according to two senior U.S. military officials as well as Iraqi officials.
Jawa Report says that it was a blond terrorist in the lead.
Omar at Iraq the Model explains how this likely could have been an inside job.

Bill Roggio explains how this could have been the work of Iranians!
This raid required specific intelligence, in depth training for the agents to pass as American troops, resources to provide for weapons, vehicles, uniforms, identification, radios and other items needed to successfully carry out the mission. Hezbollah’s Imad Mugniyah executed a similar attack against Israeli forces on the Lebanese border, which initiated the Hezbollah-Israeli war during the summer of 2006.
Or, more likely- this may have been a combination of the two- an Iranian hit with assistance from Iraqi elements.
