American Forces Free Over 40 Iraqi Hostages from an Al Qaeda Hideout

A preliminary report on FOX News says that the American forces have rescued over 40 Iraqi hostages from an Al Qaeda hideout.

Usually, when the military finds these Al Qaeda safe houses, they are empty or the hostages have already been murdered; but this time the Americans were tipped off by Iraqis who don't like Al Qaeda.

FOX reports:

Maj. Gen. William Caldwell, the top U.S. military spokesman in Baghdad, said it was the largest number of detained Iraqis ever found in a single Al Qaeda hide-out. Some among the 41 had been held as long as four months...

Caldwell said a tip to U.S. forces from Iraqis in Diyala led to the rescue operation:

"The people in Diyala are speaking up against Al Qaeda," he said. Caldwell said U.S. troops have been engaging more directly with Iraqi civilians in Diyala in recent weeks since an additional 3,000 U.S. troops entered the province.

FOX has a special Iraq Center devoted to news about the war in Iraq.

I am proud that our armed forces are in Iraq helping the Iraqis get rid of these terrorists who bomb, kidnap, torture, and murder. One of the kidnapped victims was a 14-year-old boy who was being tortured by being bound and hung from the ceiling.

America and Arab countries are also sending the Lebanese government weapons so they can get rid of the Al Qaeda who have taken over a Palestinian enclave in Tripoli, Lebanon. The Al Qaeda typically hide behind civilians and use them as human shields.

Here is an Al Qaeda torture manual captured by the Americans and released by the Department of Defense.
