Terrorists Claim To Have Killed Remaining Two U.S. Soldiers

I hope that the accounts coming out today aren't true, but the terrorists who claim to have captured three U.S. Soldiers last month are now saying that they have killed the remaining two Soldiers.

The MNF-I Website has this up today.

Today a video was released by a terrorist group which allegedly shows the military identification cards of two US Soldiers unaccounted for since May 12, 2007, when their patrol was attacked by enemy forces.

"Our thoughts and prayers remain with the families of our missing," said Brig. Gen. Kevin Bergner, Multi-National Force-Iraq spokesman. "We condemn the tactics used by these terrorists, and are using all means available to pursue those responsible."

"We are further analyzing the video, however it doesn't appear to contain any definitive evidence indicating the status of our missing Soldiers. We continue to search and hope that our two missing Soldiers will be found alive and in good health.

"Coalition and Iraqi forces have actively searched for the missing Soldiers since their disappearance, and we will continue to do everything to locate them," said Bergner.
FOX News has the AP story which includes the terror group's allegations that they have killed the two Soldiers.

Continue to keep these Soldiers and their families in your prayers.
