Iraqi army soldiers rescue kidnapped women, arrest kidnappers
BAGHDAD Soldiers from 5th Battalion, 6th Iraqi Army Division rescued a kidnapped woman from a house in Karkh at approximately 4 p.m. Saturday

A woman who claimed she had been kidnapped entered their office and led the soldiers to a house nearby, where she said another kidnapped woman was inside.

The soldiers raided the house and found the other woman and two kidnappers.

Soldiers arrested the kidnappers and the women were released unharmed.

1. Heh. It's a press release.... from Centcom...
Would have read better if a news agency had released it.

2. Good for the Iraqi army...they need all the good news they can get...
..however there are how many kidnappings per day and they got ONE and it becomes news? They do need more kudos though, I suppose?

4. It was likely a "canned arrest" solely as a PR stunt.
Once the actors were in place, the convenient "informant" goes to the "army office" (?) and tells them where to go. One would think this would have been a police matter, but in Bushworld, "the military" takes care of everything.
