Terrorists Caught Red-Handed

From a CENTCOM press release:
BAGHDAD, Iraq – Task Force Baghdad Soldiers and Iraqi security forces detained three terror suspects and found two improvised explosive devices during combat operations Oct. 22-23.

Responding to a mortar attack north of Baghdad Oct. 22, a U.S. patrol stopped a suspicious vehicle in the area. The occupants had been seen retrieving an object from a bush along the road. Upon searching the vehicle, the Soldiers found a video camera and footage recording the mortar impacts. Two individuals were detained for further questioning.

Earlier in the day, another Task Force Baghdad unit patrolling the Al Bayaa district of south Baghdad detained a suspected terrorist who was carrying a loaded rocket-propelled grenade launcher.
I'm reprinting these stories because our loyal, unbiased, non-partisan mainstream media will no doubt be busy preparing coverage of "peace activist" celebrations of the 2000th US military death in Iraq, which people like the American Friends Service Committee and Cindy Sheehan are hoping will occur sometime today.
