As I’m sure you’ve heard by now, three of our soldiers are missing in Iraq. al-Qaeda (of course Sen. Dodd says we are not fighting those guys in Iraq….it’s just a civil war don’t ya see?) has issued a statement which says they have our guys: (h/t Laura Mansfield)
Sunday morning, a jihadist website posted a statement issued by the Ministry of Information of the Islamic State in Iraq claming responsibility for the capture and arrest of a number of crusaders south of the state of Baghdad.
A translation of the statement follows:
In the name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate.
Praise be to God, Lord of all creation. Prayers and peace be upon our Prophet Muhammad and upon all of his family and companions.
On Saturday, 24 Rabi al-Thani 1428 Hegira, corresponding to 12 May 2007, your brothers in the Islamic State of Iraq were favored by God to clash with a crusaders patrol in the area of Al-Mahmudiyah, south of the state of Baghdad, which lead to the capturing and death of a number of them. We shall provide you with the full details of this blessed operation as soon as it arrives.
We ask God for His help and guidance.
Oh Lord, Revealer of the book, the Mover of the clouds, and the Defeater of the parties, defeat the hateful rejectionists, the Zionist Crusaders, and their allies.
Oh God, make them and their equipment booty of war for Muslims.
Oh God, destroy them and shake the ground under them.
Oh God, you are our support and helper, we count on you in our movements and battles.
Oh God, defeat and crush them: you are the Almighty and All-powerful. Oh God, we ask you to strike them like you did the Pharaoh and his people.
Oh God, send the deluge to their land, and make them perish with something of fear, hunger, and loss of wealth, lives, and fruits (Koranic verse).
Oh God, your soldiers shall never be defeated, and your people shall never be beaten.
Oh God, defeat them and shake them; you are the Possessor of All Strength, the Victorious. Oh Lord of majesty and bounty, oh Everlasting, oh Self-Existing One.
‘But honor belongs to Allah and His Messenger, and to the Believers; but the Hypocrites know not’ (Koranic verse).
The Islamic State of Iraq – Ministry of Information.

Lets pray these guys come out of this safe, and these terrorists go meet their virgins soon.
Catch that? WITH ANY LUCK!
Disgusting and vile.
