Soldiers storm terrorist safe house
BAGHDAD, Iraq – Task Force Baghdad Soldiers stormed through terrorist safe houses in west and north Baghdad May 16, conducting four early morning raids and capturing 10 terror suspects.
Seven of the detainees are thought to be involved in car bomb attacks against Iraqi civilians and multi-national forces. Three other suspects are thought to have participated in a series of terror attacks against coalition forces. All 10 suspects were taken into custody for questioning.
“There are more Iraqis in security positions than there are Americans guarding Iraq,” said Lt. Col. Clifford Kent, a Task Force Baghdad spokesperson. “This improves the quality and accuracy of our intelligence and that’s why we’re catching these terrorists and disrupting their plans. Another key to preventing terrorist attacks is for people to be alert and tell either the Coalition or the Iraqi security services of suspicious or unusual activities.”
