The Washington Post reported Monday that the three kidnapped Americans of Iraqi origin are Amro Mohamed, Wael al-Mahdawi, and Rusul Farad, a woman.
The three Americans appear to have been seized by Shiite militiamen in the Dora neighborhood in southern Baghdad, the police colonel said. The area from which they were taken is controlled by Shiite militias, including the Iran-backed Asai’b Ahl al-Haq, or League of the Righteous, he said.
Shiite militia are tied to Iran.
This took place immediately after the Iran deal.
U.S. authorities say they are trying to locate a group of Americans missing in Baghdad, officials say. This falls on the heels of the U.S. ransom of hostages in Iran.
It’s likely ISIS has them according to one report.
The three missing people may have been kidnapped by militias, reports the Arab news channel al-Arabiya, citing its own sources.
“We are aware of reports that American citizens are missing in Iraq,” a state department official said.
“We are working with the full co-operation of the Iraqi authorities to locate and recover the individuals.”
An attack on a Baghdad shopping centre last week, claimed by so-called Islamic State militants, brought to an end a relative lull in violence that had seen no major bloodshed in the city in weeks.
Twenty Americans are missing in Iraq but no one in the media cares.
Don’t worry. Obama’s on it and if we elect Hillary or any Democrat for that matter, she or another will be on it. Obama can continue to empty out GITMO so they can wipe out more Americans.
