Tape Shows Marine Hostage in Iraq(God help him)
FOX NEWS ^ | Sunday, June 27, 2004 | staff

Posted on 06/27/2004 2:16:30 PM PDT by dinok

BAGHDAD, Iraq — An Arab satellite TV network broadcast a videotape Sunday showing a blindfolded man in military fatigues and said he was a U.S. Marine taken hostage in Iraq.

There was no immediate comment from the U.S. military, but the video showed a card identifying the man by a Pakistani name and as an "active duty" Marine. The man had a trimmed moustache and his eyes were covered with a white blindfold.

The Al-Jazeera network said the group claimed it infiltrated a Marine outpost, lured the man outside and abducted him. The station said the group demanded the release of all Iraqis "in occupation jails" or the man would be killed.

The group identified itself as "Islamic Response," the security wing of the "1920 Revolution Brigades" referring to the uprising against the British after World War I.

I hope to God this Marine pulls through. I pray for him and his family.

The Faluja people should be glad I don't have control of their fait. Their town would be a parking lot by now. It should have been from the begining.

I have a plan to capture the guys that are beheading all those hostages. Don't know why the Pentagon hasn't done so already. Implant a tracking chip underneat the skin of all troops, contractors, etc.,Some parents do this to their young children... Do you think the Pentagon has even thought of doing this like Yesterday??? I don't know who to contact with this idea. If anybody out there does know, do so NOW!!!

ISLAMONAZIS

WWII . Amin Al Husseini spent most of the war in Berlin. He was on Hitler's payroll as he lead the Hanzar Division of Muslim SS and played a lead-role in determining the fate of Europe's Jewish community.. From Berlin, Amin Al Husseini helped organize the transfer of Nazi officers into the Middle East

Amin Al Husseini inspecting his Nazi troops, the Hanzar. Here, he is showing a young Muslim recruit how to use his rifle. Amin Al Husseini himself had been an officer in the defeated Ottoman Islamic Empire of World War I.

Amin Al Husseini seen inspecting his Hanzar Division made up exclusively of Muslims, mostly from the Crotia/Bosnia/Serbia region. They actively lead the genocide against Serbs, Serbian Jews and Gypsies.

Amin Al Husseini meets with Adolf Hitler in November 1942, weeks before the decision to implement the Final Solution which sent Europe's Jews to the gas chamber. The Third Reich provided Amin Al Husseini with a salary and appointed him Head of the Hanzar SS Division. The Hanzar Division was made of Nazi Muslims and implemented the genocide of 250,000 Serbs, Gypsies and Jews during WWII.

Amin Al Husseini shown here on a Nazi poster recruiting fellow Muslims to join Hitler in the fight against the West and the Jews. His disciples today include Yasser Arafat, Saddam Hussein and the leaders of Hamas, Al Qeida and Islamic Jihad.

Amin Al Husseini, future President of the World Islamic Congress (1961) and founding father of the Arab League (1944) inspects his Muslim Nazi troops, the Hanzar Division. Amin Al Husseini making the traditional nazi salute.

Yasser Arafat became a disciple of Amin Al Husseini since the age of 17. Here: recent picture of Palestinian soldiers under the leadership of Arafat making the traditional Nazi salute.

re: implanted chip

I suggested the same thing as soon as I heard about the first hostage being taken. It is the only hope to have a chance to rescue them alive.

Great idea!

I don't think "beheading" is the correct word there. I think the words are "sawing off their heads."

The libs will say it's Bush's fault and when terrorism continues IF a dem becomes president they will still say it's Bush's fault,he will get retroactive blame.

But Clinton gets no retroactive blame,he as innocent as a new born babe and had nothing to do with the failure of intelligence prior to 9-11.

I don't want to blame any US president,the fault is radical Islam----period!

Why can't Michael Moore and his ilk use their considerable skills and resources to go after our real enemy instead of doing their best to divide this country(and they are succeeding)?

hand all the prisoners the terrorists want to the Kurds and let them slay them in the "accustomed" way, on video with audio turned up LOUD. Then see how many more they take.

if Kerry wins, stories like this won't make the news. Hey, just a couple weeks ago, some lunatic in NJ beheaded his mother in law and a friend I believe. It wasn't a big story, and if Kerry is president, neither will these occasional beheadings in iraq. How many people are murdered acroos our own country every day? 100+?

If Kerry wins, all you will hear about are schools being rebuild, children being innoculated, picture of UN peacekeeps directing traffic, etc.

They've done it now! If they harm a hair on that Marine's head, it will be the mother of all bad moves! His fellow Marines will not take it sitting down.

Don't expect the Marines to take videos or snapshots of their vengeance à la Abu Ghraib, either.

Allah had better stock up on a few thousand more virgins...

Excellent idea! I'm sure the liberals would oppose it saying violation of privacy or some nonsens - because they don't want us to win the war and lose the election.

Another freeper who specialized in monitoring car traffic suggested putting in these very sensitive sensors in hot spots - and that way they could determine foot and car traffic in and out of areas - ultimately determining the safe houses.

Will they treat the Marine in accordance with the Geneva convention? I suspect not.

Will the press say a single word critical of mo-slimes? Again, I suspect not.

Tracking chips as are used in expensive pets and horses and even in a club in Ibiza, Spain require that the device to sense them be in relatively close proximity- a few feet versus a few miles as possibly you're thinking. I've been watching this technology for a while- the limiting technology seems to be battery size.

I'm not sure how well "CHURCHED" you are but you need to read Chapter 13 of Revellation in the KJV. The sentiment is worthy but the application of this technology carries with it consequences you need to consider thoughtfully!

"Will they treat the Marine in accordance with the Geneva convention? I suspect not."

That is why it was laughable when Biden did his little spill in front of Ashcroft saying that we HAD to obey the Geneva convention when dealing with the terrorist at Abu.....SO THEY WOULDN'T TREAT HIS SON (whose supposed to be in the service) WITH SUCH DISPICABLE ACTIONS AS OUR SOLDIERS DID AT ABU IF HE WERE CAPTURED.

Think about that. Biden is a total fool saying that. He knows good and well that these barbaric terrorist are not going to treat our soldiers, or anyone else whose captured, by any sort of guidelines. He is a complete fool and blowhard idiot.

Prayers to that Marine's family. Please Lord, help him.

Sadly, there is only one correct reply to these acts of terror. Ignore them, and if possible, make a joke out of it.

The terrorist only perform these acts in an effort to obtain publicity from the world's media.

Ridicule and laughter has always been the best methods of destroying this method of warfare.

Laugh at how weak and frustrated these "men" are today!

These are not tactics of strong "men", but of feeble and weak children.

American women have much more power and know exactly how to control little boys.

The marines will do what they are told to do and much to often recently they are being told to turn the other cheek. We did it in Fallujah and we did it in Najaf. These abductions and beheadings are the direct result of being weak in our actions in Iraq over the last couple of months. They now feel that they can do whatever they want and they will pay no price, as in Fallujah. I like Bush and I will vote for him in November but he has got to turn the soldiers loose and knock off this PC crap.

There's a small problem with your idea.

The chip doesn't work as advertised by the more panic-stricken members of FR. Basically, you have to have the equipment for getting a signal from the chip very close to the target--as in "tens of feet."

I'm wondering why they didn't have him speak and say his own name. Apparently the video clip is very brief, he's blindfolded and doesn't speak.

I'm still clinging to the hope that this isn't really a Marine. Maybe they snatched an ID card somehow and dressed someone up in camoflauge to "play the part". I noticed that, unlike the other Pakistani hostage taken today, those holding the "Marine" didn't give a deadline.

Maybe I'm grasping at straws, but ...

For some reason, the US government has a 'thing' with trusting and hiring the locals and foreigners rather than their own citizens.

We are the only country in the world that I know of that is so stupid to actually "outsource" our intelligence.

You know,in a way you are right.Thee is something treasonous about the reactions of the lefties.They care more about winning an election than havin an American killed.

Every time the terrorists pull something like these beheadings they must laugh at the way Americans turn on themselves instead of blaming the actual perpetrators of the crime.

A lot of Americans hated Truman for using the atom bomb on Japan but there was none of the hate and vitriol that is being thrown at Bush.(Yes,I was around then).

They just hate their country,these idiots,they just hate it!

"It's hard for me to believe that they infiltrated a Marine outpost and took a US Marine alive without suffering any casualties. I don't believe it."

It was hard for me to believe that someone drove hundrends of yards in the Marine base in Beirut and killed so many with a truck bomb, but they did. Some times soldiers drop their guard.

I have a feeling that the Rags took some casualties. We still have not done a thing about the 4 marines ambushed last week. In fact, we don't seem to be doing much to put the fear of Allah in them.

As soon as we can forget the PC stuff, maybe we can admit we screwed up in Fallujah. Surround the place, give (unarmed) civilians 24 hours to exit through controlled checkpoints.

Then LEVEL the place! 40 for 1 isnt enough. Lets make it 4000 for 1.

Is anyone besides Fox News reporting this? Fox said AP and Reuters were confirming the story, but the story is only that they say they have a Marine. If this is genuine and it isn't a Marine, I still feel sorry for the guy, but if this is really a Marine, he might just be the only one over there right now with a moustache. I don't believe I've seen pictures of any Marines in Iraq with moustaches.
