Search For WMD's Leads to Soldiers' Deaths

by TChris

Three members of a "top-secret unit detailed to search for weapons of mass destruction" in Bahgdad died in an explosion as they were raiding a house, apparently in search of chemical agents. Although our government will neither confirm nor deny the soldiers' mission, the UPI found "clear evidence" that they belonged to the Iraq Survey Group, "including credentials looted from the vehicles by local Iraqi youth." The military acknowledges that two of the dead are Americans; the third may be British, or his death (like the mission) may be classified information that the government won't confirm or deny.

Five other soldiers were wounded.

Their completely anonymous uniforms, lack of unit patches or rank indications, facial hair, personalized weaponry and radically modified military vehicles generally indicate membership in special operations units.
