I hope so. There was an earlier post (maybe pulled now) that the bodies of two of them had been found in an orchard around there. That story is apparently out on the Arab blogs and media. So I think it was probably a lie, meant to undermine morale, and this was issued as a correction.
I also read a story (no idea if it was true) that the locals misdirected a search team so they dug up some local Iraqis who had been buried in a field.
This kind of business always breeds rumors.
The thread should have been pulled, but it is still up. Not sure why they allowed Jihadist propaganda.
Or wishful raghead thinking.
