Despatches from Iraqi Mujahideen November 22, 2004

The first casualty in war is truth and the conflict in Iraq has become as much a battle for certainty as it is a military struggle. There is another side to the conflict that we are not being told about, largely because the Western news media is distorting the facts or suppressing vital information. Fortunately though, this website has a contact who will be sending in information from the Iraqi mujahideen.

We would like to emphasise however, that by publishing this material we are not endorsing or supporting the actions of the Iraqi resistance fighters. We are simply trying to inform the public as to the real situation in Iraq.

This week our informant, Grenoble, writes that Brig. General Mark Kimmit was reported killed in Ramadi about 3 months ago when his convoy was ambushed. Rumours started after some of the convoy’s attackers reported seeing someone who looked remarkably like Kimmit in the convoy. Thereafter Kimmit, who had been appearing almost daily at press conferences in Baghdad, suddenly disappeared from view.

Last week however he reappeared giving press briefings in Tampa, Florida, USA.

Just think about that for a moment: the spokesman for the US military and the deputy operations commander in Iraq disappears for nearly 3 months and then suddenly reappears in Tampa, Florida.

Could it be that Kimmit was in fact wounded in the ambush and now, after a few months convalescing, has resumed light duties at his home base in the U.S.?

In the last week, our contact also reports, the Americans were seeking a truce with the mujahideen in Fallujah, after having suffered heavy casualties. Despite US claims to having captured Fallujah, reports continue that the insurgents still occupy the city’s southern districts.

We cannot confirm this but he also reports that along with the dead and wounded over 100 US troops have been captured, including two colonels. Again we cannot verify this but it does echo similar reports we encountered of captured US troops being held hostage.

Although no exact figures are given, Voice of the White House November 12, 2004 also intimates that US prisoners were being held by the Iraqi resistance, and in some cases executed in so-called ‘slaughter houses’, in Fallujah.

Grenoble continues that the bodies of US servicemen are being shipped to large freezers in Kuwait, where they are left for several months before their deaths are disclosed. All of which is in an effort to minimise the American people’s awareness the number of US casualties.

Finally he reports that many serving with the US Army in Iraq are not American citizens but Mexicans or South Americans serving in the US Army to obtain US citizenship.

If killed however, their deaths are not reported and their bodies are burnt or buried in mass graves in the Iraqi desert.

When asked why the bodies of his “brother” Americans were being dumped in the desert an American soldier, held hostage by the Iraqi resistance, told his captors that they were not his “brother’s” but “Latino Bastards.”
