Don't know if this has been confirmed or not. So much news comes out from Iraq and is later proven to be false. - I pray this is not true but thought it best to put it out there so people that pray can do so for these men.
BAGHDAD, Iraq - The U.S. military says two soldiers are missing after their team came under attack at a traffic control point in Yusafiyah, Iraq Friday night, that left one other coalition soldier dead.
A military spokesman told FOXNews after hearing small arms fire and explosions in the vicinity, a quick reaction force responded to the scene. Coalition forces have initiated a search operation to locate and determine the status of the soldiers. They are currently listed as "duty status unknown." No other details have been released.
the above is from KHON2 Hawaii and the same story is in the Houston Chron.com
Pray for their safe return and for the safety of Iraqi and Coalition forces.
Update: Apparently true - Chicago Tribune has the story. No Nmaes released as of yet. - Continus praying for their safety and confusion in the ranks of the enemy.
The last paragraph of the Tribune article shows how the enemy can easily sow disinformation that makes the good guys appear to be evil. " "What security plan are they talking about?" said Hussein Kadhum, 21, who was visiting the shrine Saturday. "The whole area is cordoned, and the police and army are everywhere and are searching everybody. So who can bring explosives inside this area unless there are people with the security forces cooperating with him?"
Update: - More of the story can be found here. - Family hopes for missing soldier's return -
I pray the enemy becomes confused and makes an error allowing these men to be found or make their escape.
