WASHINGTON, Nov. 2, 2009 – Iraqi security forces arrested 13 people today during three operations in connection with car-bomb networks between Baghdad and Kirkuk, military officials reported.

Working with U.S. advisors, an Iraqi unit arrested a suspected member of a vehicle-bomb network in southern Kirkuk. A warrant accuses the suspect of being linked to network members associated with June 20 bombings in Taza that killed more than 90 people.

During the operation, the Iraqi unit arrested a second man based on information found at the scene.

In a separate operation about 55 miles northeast of Baghdad, Iraqi police arrested two people on warrants after searching a building for a suspected financial associate of al-Qaida in Iraq’s Diyala-based vehicle-bomb network.

In a third operation, a combined force searched several buildings near Abu Ghraib for a man suspected of manufacturing vehicle-borne explosives for al-Qaida in Iraq. During questioning, nine people were arrested based on statements made to the security team connecting them to the al-Qaida in Iraq network suspect.

Also today, Iraqi forces arrested two people during a combined search of a suspected terrorist safe house in northern Baghdad. Iraqi forces, with U.S. advisors, searched a building in a northern Baghdad neighborhood allegedly used to house Lebanese Hezbollah terrorist members.

Based on evidence found at the scene, the security team arrested two people suspected of acquiring illegal weapons for and financing Lebanese Hezbollah operations.

Pentagon to Release Photos From Detainee Custody Investigations

Pentagon to Release Photos From Detainee Custody Investigations

WASHINGTON, April 24, 2009 – The Defense Department soon will release a substantial number of photos associated with concluded past investigations of alleged abuse of detainees, a senior official said here today.

The photos were used as part of internal military investigations conducted in Iraq and Afghanistan, not including the photos used during allegations of detainee abuse at the Abu Ghraib detention facility in Iraq, Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman told reporters.

The pending late-May release of the photos comes from an agreement reached between the American Civil Liberties Union, the Justice Department and the Defense Department, Whitman said. The ACLU had sued the U.S. government for release of the photos.

A Justice Department letter filed yesterday in a New York District Court stated that the Defense Department would furnish 21 photographs ordered for release by the court and 23 other images involved in the lawsuit.

Additionally, the Justice Department letter stated, the Defense Department also will release “a substantial number of other images” contained in Army Criminal Investigation Division reports that have been closed. The Defense Department is to furnish all cited images by May 28, the letter said.

A number of the images being released in May were part of more than 60 investigations conducted by the U.S. military between 2003 and January 2006, Whitman said.

Since 2003, more than 400 military members charged with detainee abuse were found to be guilty of some form of misconduct, Whitman said. Punishment, he noted, ranged from imprisonment to bad-conduct discharges, reduction in rank and other types of punitive actions.

Defense Department policy always has advocated humane treatment of detainees, Whitman pointed out.

“We have, obviously, over time, found instances where performance has not matched policy,” Whitman said. “And when the performance hasn’t matched the policy, we’ve held people accountable for their actions.”

“There are a number of [lawsuits] that we’re dealing with for detainee photographs and so on,” Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates said to reporters yesterday during his visit to Camp Lejeune, N.C. “There’s a certain inevitability, I believe, that much of this will eventually come out; much has already come out.”

Obama: Terrorist Threat ‘Not Going Away’

Posted by Larry Barnes on March 24, 2009

WASHINGTON, March 24, 2009 – The threat of terrorist attacks from al-Qaida and their affiliates “is not a threat that’s going away,” President Barack Obama said today at the White House. “We have to take it seriously.”

Speaking at a joint news conference with Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd, Obama said he believes the American and Australian people understand this brutal fact and the need to continue standing up to terrorists.

For Americans, “What’s been burned into our memory is the events of 9/11,” the president said. “But I think the Australian people remember what happened in Bali,” he said, referring to the 2002 bombings in Indonesia that killed 202 people, including many Australians.

“That’s not something that we will forget,” Obama said. “And as a consequence, it’s important for us to stay on the offensive and to dismantle these terrorist organizations, wherever they are.”

That’s a difficult task, he conceded. “It’s one that requires us to stay focused. It requires effective, coordinated action. It requires a recognition that we will not just solve these problems militarily.”

The United States must become “much more effective diplomatically” and “much more effective on the development front,” he said. “And my expectation would be that over the next several years, you are going to see a more comprehensive strategy, a more focused strategy, a more disciplined strategy to achieve our common goals.”

Obama conceded that the American people, like the Australian people, don’t like deploying their young people overseas for extended periods. It’s expensive to the country and “puts enormous strain on families,” he said.

“And some don’t return,” he continued. “That’s always something that weighs on the minds of the public.”

But Obama said he believes the American and Australian people share another recognition: “In order for us to keep our homeland safe, in order to maintain our way of life and in order to ensure order … on the international scene, that we can’t allow vicious killers to have their way,” he said.

“And we’re going to do what’s required to ensure that does not happen.”

Australia is a crucial U.S. ally in the Afghan war and the largest non-NATO force contributor to the International Security Assistance Force, defense officials noted.
Most of its 1,000 troops in Afghanistan serve in the southern province of Uruzgan, and the rest are part of a provincial reconstruction team there. Ten Australian soldiers have died in the Afghan conflict.

Australia also has been a staunch supporter of anti-terror and rebuilding efforts in Afghanistan.

Coalition, Afghan Forces Kill Six, Detain 14 in Afghanistan Operations

Posted by Larry Barnes on March 23, 2009

American Forces Press Service

WASHINGTON, March 23, 2009 – Coalition and Afghan forces have killed six enemy fighters and detained 14 others in operations in Afghanistan in recent days, military officials reported.

This morning, combined forces detained three suspects during an operation to disrupt a bomb-making network in eastern Afghanistan.

In the Sabari district of Khowst province, about 70 miles southeast of Kabul, Afghan and coalition forces searched a compound where the three suspects were detained without incident.

One rifle, two chest racks and ammunition were found and removed from the compound. Six women and 10 children were protected and there was no collateral damage to the property.

In other operations:

— Yesterday, Afghan and coalition forces killed five militants and detained four others in northern Afghanistan’s Kondoz province during an operation targeting a terrorist network there.

In coordination with local Afghan police, the combined forces conducted an assault of a compound near the Tajikistan border. During the initial assault, forces encountered enemy combatants in the courtyard, and killed one and detained another. When they called out for non-combatants to exit the buildings, they were engaged with small arms fire. Forces returned fire and cleared the buildings, resulting in four militants killed and three detained.

Forces found multiple AK-47 assault rifles and chest racks on the compound and removed them.

No women or children were present in the targeted attacks.

— On March 21, Afghan and coalition forces killed an insurgent and captured four others in eastern Afghanistan’s Paktia province in an operation to disrupt terrorist networks operating near the Pakistan border.

The combined force approached a compound in the Dzadran district, about 80 miles south of Kabul, to capture a leader in a foreign fighter network that supplies the Islamic Jihad Union and Haqqani terrorist groups. As the force patrolled the compound, a suspected insurgent was seen fleeing on foot and the force pursued him. He maneuvered to higher ground, gaining a tactical advantage, and the assault force engaged him with small arms fire, killing him.

During a subsequent search of the compound, forces detained four suspects without further incident. Forces then conducted a search of a nearby compound without incident.

Eighteen women and 29 children were protected.

— On March 20, Afghan National Police, minimally assisted by coalition forces, conducted an early morning search of a compound suspected of housing insurgents in eastern Afghanistan’s Ghazni province.

ANP conducted the search after receiving information from local villagers that the compound belonged to a man suspected of conducting insurgent activities in the area. Three suspects were detained and taken into custody during the search.

The ANP encountered no resistance and no shots were fired. All women and children present were safeguarded.

The incident occurred Feb. 25, about 60 miles northeast of Baghdad, officials said in a statement. Two coalition aircraft were directed to visually identify the unmanned aerial vehicle after it was detected hovering inside the Iraqi border. The pilots confirmed that it wasn’t a coalition aircraft and that no collateral damage would result from a shoot-down. Coalition air forces tracked the UAV for more than an hour before the pilots engaged it, officials said.
