. I spent the Spring and Summer of 2008 helping the Iraqi Army units fighting against Iranians and Iranian proxies in Basrah.

Now, it appears, some of the worst agents of Iran have been swapped for one Brit. He was all that survived of a group that was kidnapped in 2007. Why bother capturing
the enemy anymore? I'm speechless at this point...
At least we will execute better judgment at home
