5 U.S. Soldiers Dead, 3 Missing After Attack in Iraq's 'Triangle of Death'
Fox News

BAGHDAD — U.S. and Iraqi troops searched house-to-house and combed fields with their bare hands Saturday after American troops and their Iraqi interpreter came under attack in the notorious "triangle of death" south of Baghdad, leaving five dead and three missing.

The military said the patrol was struck in a pre-dawn explosion near Mahmoudiya, about 20 miles south of Baghdad -- an Al Qaeda area where two U.S. soldiers were found massacred after disappearing at a checkpoint nearly a year ago.

An emergency response unit arrived at the scene and found five members of the team dead and three others missing.


al-Qaida Says It Has Missing U.S. Troops

BAGHDAD - Thousands of U.S. soldiers searched Sunday for three Americans who were missing after their patrol came under attack in an explosion that killed four of their comrades and an Iraqi army translator.

The Islamic State in Iraq, an al-Qaida front group, said it had captured several soldiers in the attack, but offered no proof to back up its claim, posted on an Islamic Web site.

On Sunday, U.S. spokesman Maj. Gen. William Caldwell confirmed that the Iraqi interpreter was among the dead _ and that all the missing were Americans. He said about 4,000 U.S. troops were involved in the search.

"Everybody is fully engaged, the commanders are intimately focused on this, every asset we have from national assets to tactical assets ... are being used ... to locate these three missing soldiers," Caldwell said

UPDATE: May 15th

Iraqi Terror Group Warns U.S. to Stop Search for Missing GIs

BAGHDAD — An Al Qaeda front group that claims it has captured American soldiers warned the United States on Monday to stop searching for them.

The U.S. military also said for the first time it believes the three missing soldiers were abducted by Al Qaeda-linked militants after an attack that included three roadside bombs.

"What you are doing in searching for your soldiers will lead to nothing but exhaustion and headaches. Your soldiers are in our hands. If you want their safety, do not look for them," the Islamic State of Iraq said on a militant Web site.

Thanks WT, this is a prime example of the brute mentality of the enemy. While our side and the media tout the Geneva convention as our guide to conduct and care of prisoners they will not abide by any rules. If al Qaeda has these soldiers they will be brutally treated if not killed, all we can do is pray for their safe return. Sleep well members of Congress, your malfeasance is responsible for acts like this. Great news.. Afghanistan's Mullah Dadullah is no more. Thank you coalition forces.

God, I hope we get them back OK. Where is CAIR and the ACLU. Our POWs are brutally murdered and we take excellent, humane care of the terrorists we capture.

All I can do is hope and pray for our soldiers.

Funny how now that Heartless Harry has said the war in unwinnable, they've stepped up their efforts to destroy us.
And isn't there NOT supposed to be Al-Qaeda in Iraq?
Do we not learn our lessons?

I am praying for those soldiers who died and those who are missing.

The terrorists do NOT follow any rules of war. So I guess we should stop following them too!

The msm are using this story to add to their drumbeat of cut 'n run.

We must pray for these missing soldiers and their families!

Jack that is very good news, thank you for telling us about Mullah Dadullah.

Posted by: Wild Thing at May 13, 2007 10:38 PM

Tom we sure do take good care of our prisoners.

Lynn you right, Pelosi has said there are no Al-Qaeda in Iraq.

Posted by: Wild Thing at May 13, 2007 10:42 PM

Always On Watch, how awful of the media to do this and use these wonderful lives of our troops to push their agenda.

Last summer when the Islamomaniacs abducted three Israeli soldiers...Israel leveled Lebanon!
Kindness is weakness and we are being exploited for it at home and in the theatre of operations. We have to fight by civilized rules and the enemy doesn't?

Mullah Dick Lock:

Come out from behind the stupid dialect, shithead. You can't pull it off. You're just another gutless wanker. Maybe Ameriki find you and teach you lesson.

Ease up on the hash pipe mullah. Last I heard, more of theirs are being killed. By the thousands. The sandmonkeys should be pushing the six figure mark soon. Pretty good for a tired, weak bear. If the wankers on the left would just shut up and stay out of the way, our guys and gals could wipe the rest out.

mullah cimoc, I allowed your comment because you prove how correct we are when we say how bad your so called religion is, how filled with hate you all are.

And listen up, what is it with you Muslims that you can't write?

You are a nothing in this world. You can only dream of being what our awesome troops are, brave and heroes.

Posted by: Wild Thing at May 14, 2007 11:32 PM

I'd give them 24 hours to return our men whole, healthy and alive, and if they failed to comply, well, then I'd nuke mecca and be done with it.

Mullah Cimoc - Sultan of Sumac - makes donuts in Utah! His writing skills tell me that he is a product of the NY City 'Pub lick skoole sis tum'!
My Death Star II radar follows this looney to and from Uranus! Enjoy his entertainment and remember that he applies hair gel to his camel before they ride off on their date!
