Web Site Claims To Have Video Of Missing GIs

From those friends of terrorism at the Associated Press:

U.S. Army Spc. Alex Jimenez, 25, left, of Lawrence, Mass. and Pvt. Byron W. Fouty, 19, of Waterford, Mich., center, of Delta Company, 4th Battalion, 31st Infantry Regiment are seen in their barracks at Patrol Base Inchon in Quarghuli village near Youssifiyah, 12 miles south of Baghdad, Iraq. Jimenez and Fouty are still missing twelve days after a May 12, 2007 ambush in Iraq left four U.S. soldiers and an Iraqi soldier dead.

Web site to show video of missing troops

By ANNA JOHNSON, Associated Press Writer

CAIRO, Egypt – An Islamic militant Web site said Monday it would soon release video clips showing the capture of three American soldiers who disappeared following an ambush in Iraq in mid-May. The body of one soldier was later found, but the other two remain missing.

The video shows the kidnapping as well as footage from after the attack, according to the Washington-based SITE Institute, which said it had obtained the 10-minute, 41-second clip.

The institute, which monitors militant Web sites, said the video also shows the identification cards of the two of the soldiers. A prominent Islamic Web site said in a banner headline it would soon show the video, but it was not yet posted.

The three U.S. soldiers were captured west of Baghdad on May 12 in an ambush later claimed by an insurgent umbrella group, the Islamic State of Iraq, that includes al-Qaida in Iraq…

Let’s hope they are still alive at least.
