Coalition Forces Have Been Busy
The American Forces Press Service reports that twenty terrorist suspects were detained today and that a massive cache of weapons has been discovered.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 28, 2005 - Soldiers from Multinational Division Central South captured 20 men suspected of terrorism in northern Iraq's Babil province today, military officials reported.I'm reporting these stories on the off-chance that our loyal, patriotic, unbiased mainstream media completely ignore them.
Soldiers also seized machine guns, ammunition and other equipment.
Elsewhere, U.S. soldiers discovered more than 2,700 mortar rounds near an abandoned Iraqi army base south of Kirkuk Nov. 27.
Soldiers from the 101st Airborne Division's 2nd Battalion, 1st Brigade Combat Team, and explosive ordnance disposal experts began the task of unearthing the weapons from a mound in a field. Iraqi and U.S. forces are securing the site and preparing to excavate the rest of the field in search of more weapons.
This cache alone has yielded as much explosive material as the brigade had gathered in its area over the past two months, according to the on-site EOD team.
