Associated Press Reports American Soldier Held Captive in Iraq

There is no question by now that the liberal mainstream media has an agenda to portray Iraq as a quagmire. Any negative story they can find gets published. All the good news of Iraqi reconstruction or progress is either downplayed or not reported. The liberal press is especially excited when insurgents promise to show a beheading for the cameras in 72 hours if their demands are not met. So, it is no surprise that a story of an American soldier being captured was reported by the Associated Press and published in The Globe and Mail.

According to the AP report, a U.S. military spokesman in Baghdad, Marine Sgt. Salju K. Thomas, said he had no information on the claim but "we are currently looking into it". A statement posted with the picture suggested the group was holding other soldiers.

''Our mujahadeen heroes of Iraq's Jihadi Battalion were able to capture American military man John Adam after killing a number of his comrades and capturing the rest,'' said the statement, signed by the ''Mujahadeen Brigades.''

''God willing, we will behead him if our female and male prisoners are not released from U.S. prisons within the maximum period of 72 hours from the time this statement has been released,'' the statement said.

Photos of the captured American soldier can be found at The Western Standard. The photo shows an American soldier, wearing desert fatigues and seated on a concrete floor with his hands tied behind his back. A gun barrel was pointed at his head, and behind him on the wall is a black banner with the Islamic words, ‘there is no god but God and Muhammad is His prophet’.

The girlfriend of the captured soldier held a press conference to plead for Mr. Adam's release, saying “He’s not over there to hurt anyone. He just wants to help bring freedom and democracy to the people of Iraq. He loves his country, and I love him.”

She went on to plead with President Bush to comply with the militants’ demands, and dismissed suggestions that doing so would encourage them to carry out more kidnappings. American military officials worry his captors may torture the American soldier in an attempt to glean information, but so far John Adam has given only his name, rank and UPC code.

God bless the liberal media, they are so much fun.

screw it all i cant wait for the retract... your going to see back peddling that would put olympic swimmers to shame...

one more point about that "m-16" It has a support stock... US military doesn't use that gun design because it promotes "spray and pray" that is why you have one hand on triger and one hand on barrel guard. so it makes u aim when you shoot...

Mwa ha! I was going to post and say "Dude, you KNOW that is a friggin doll, yeah?" and then I saw the link where his girlfriend pleaded for his life. LOL Too funny. Makes me glad those guys are resorting to dolls for scare tactics; the past few months have been rather grisly.
