Video: U.S. troops rescue kidnapped Iraqi man

Made me think of Pam Hess, who wrote an article a few weeks ago about the sentiments she expressed in that now-famous video clip. Quote: “It is a struggle to protect innocent people from absolute evil.”

Another story that won’t be making the Main Stream Media anytime soon……… God Bless the troops, so much good, so little coverage. In a capsule, “Why we fight……..”

Memo to Rep. Pelosi and Sen. Reid:

All of the Iraqis in this video will die if we cut and run.

Watched this video and it is good. This is what it is all about and shame on the MSM for not showing stuff like this all the time like they show the bad news all of the time.

Watched the Pam Hess video for the first time too. I am glad to see that someone in the MSM can go into theater with an open mind and see what is truly going on without letting Bush Derangement Syndrome get in the way. Thank you Pam Hess for telling us what you see as the truth and not what your politics are.

I know it sounds cheesy, but you swell with pride when you see videos like this, to know these are our men and women.

This made me weep. And John Kerry accuses our forces of terrorizing women and children?

Melba Toast on April 3, 2007 at 8:40 AM

yeah…but every Iraqi hates us ya know.

God Bless all of them.

I question the timing. Bushitler and Bliar and their illegal war and 9/11 and WTC7 (Google it) and Scooter Libby and firing attorneys and Halliburton and WMD and “BUSH LIED PEOPLE DIED” and all of a sudden this feel-good video comes out? You know Rove is behind this!!!!

Saving one person at a time. How wonderful. Don’t you know everyone in that room was filled with happiness and those who participated will never forget this experience.

now that should have came with a “Hanky Warning” how can you leave a people that need you like this?

Kaptain Amerika on April 3, 2007 at 10:27 AM

Allah Pundit,

Good news on the recovered kidnap news. Bad news is that near the end of the clip one of the identity of the translator was accidentally exposed seeing that he removed the face mask and his face can be seen when an Iraqi woman hugged him.

Go troops!

(they’re the ones with the real moral authority)

No better friend. No worse enemy.

Said so many times but still not often enough… May God continue to bless our soldiers!
