Air Force B1 Bombers Drop Ordnance And Destroy Prison
The recently uncovered house of Torture that was located in Northern Zambraniyah was destroyed on Monday. A U.S. Air Force Lancer B1-1B bomber delivered the killing blow; dropping six five hundred pound bombs to totally destroy the torture chamber. Members from the Citizen group Sons Of Iraq led Coalition soldiers to the house of torture recently, where evidence of severe beatings, torture and beatings were discovered.
The patrol that discovered the house was in the area on patrol, and led there by a Son of Iraq group member. The SOI member had lost his family to Al Qaeda and is very motivated to assist coalition troops.
“The guy is wanting to rid his community of Al Qaeda, and himself and his Sons Of Iraq men are really helping our efforts,” said Captain Chris O’Brien. Captain O’Brien is the troop commander for Company C, 3rd Infantry, 2nd BCT, and 8th Cavalry Regiment.
Much of the recent success in uncovering elements of Al Qaeda, weapons caches, and former safe houses for Al Qaeda can be credited to the involvement of the citizen Sons Of Iraq Groups. They are providing ever-increasing reports of enemy terrorist activity, and aiding coalition soldiers in a big way.
“Sons of Iraq are pointing out the bad guys in these different neighborhoods, and their assistance is becoming more and more critical, we are doing a much better job with their help,” said Captain O’Brien.
Twelve books written in Arabic that talk of interrogation and torture methods were found in the torture house, as well as handcuffs, and electrocution tables, and hooks used to hang human being on.
“The house was totally destroyed by the bombs, and will no longer be a threat to citizens in the area,” said Captain O’Brien.
