Freedom Fighters

"Colonel H.R. McMaster offers some details about Cindy's freedom fighters:

But it was his description of how the enemy occupied their safe haven that got the most attention. Col. McMaster told of beheadings, gunshot killings, a booby-trapped dead child and kidnappings. 'This is the worst of the worst in terms of people in the world,' he said. 'To protect themselves here, what the enemy did is they waged the most brutal and murderous campaign against the people of Tal Afar. ... The enemy here did just the most horrible things you can imagine, in one case murdering a child, placing a booby trap within the child's body and waiting for the parent to come recover the body of their child and exploding it to kill the parents.'
Col. McMaster said his men killed scores of the enemy in a series of firefights up and down the tight streets of the crossroads between Syria, where insurgents train, and the critical northern Iraqi city of Mosul. �
Col. McMaster said soldiers captured some associates of lead terrorist Abu Musab Zarqawi. 'They are some of the worst human beings on the face of the Earth,' he said. 'There is no really greater pleasure for us than to kill or capture these particular individuals.'"
