Kidnapped Soldiers Found...And It's Not Good News.
"According to a rumor posted on Islamist websites, the American forces have discovered the headless bodies of two of the kidnapped American soldiers. The reports stated that the bodies were found on May 18, after six days of searching, and that the search for the third soldier, whose fate remains unknown, is still continuing. Sources in the Mahmudiyya police force stated that the bodies were found near one of the parks in the city and bear signs of severe torture." (source)
I really hope and pray that by "severe torture" they mean these soldiers were made to stand in really cold AC with dogs barking at them... But somehow I doubt that's the case.
"Coalition forces detained 11 people during operations yesterday, including nine suspected of involvement in the May 12 kidnapping of three U.S. soldiers." (source)
No matter how expected this outcome was...makes it no less devastating. My throat was burning as I read this--thinking of the moms, dads, wives and children left to grieve.
