Did not take long after the recent "agreements" between Iran and the U.S. for releases of people being held against their will to have yet another "incident" taking place.

Now we have U.S. Intel "officials" believing 3 Americans kidnapped in Baghdad Iraq are the efforts of an Iranian "supported" group called the League of the Righteous.

Maybe we are not quite up to speed when it comes the "negotiating" with "terrorists".

Who are those guys anyway?

US officials ‘strongly suspect’ Iranian-backed militia of kidnapping 3 Americans in Baghdad


US military and intelligence officials believe an influential and dangerous Iranian-supported militia is responsible for kidnapping three American contractors in Iraq’s capital several days ago. The militia, known as the “League of the Righteous,” has denied any involvement in the kidnapping, but has a history of abducting foreigners in Iraq.

US military and intelligence officials told The Long War Journal that the League of the Righteous is the prime suspect in the kidnapping of the three Americans, who disappeared last week while visiting an apartment in the Dora neighborhood in Baghdad.

“We strongly suspect that AAH [Asaib al Haq, or the League of the Righteous] abducted them,” one official said. “Our information leads me to believe that they [the Americans] are being held by this militia.”


Asa'ib Ahl al-Haq

League of the Righteous !!

Well, when you do deals with the devil what more can you expect?

The nation (America) with the history of double crossing everyone it deals with is getting double crossed itself it would seem.

Poetic justice perhaps?

Another terror group ?

It's beginning to read like a comic book with all these villainous groups, next we'll be seeing videos of their leaders wearing capes and masks

And it looks like the US has a lot of power struggles on the inside, with the left hand they appease to Iran with dropping sanctions and agreeing nuclear power deals and with the right they impose different sanctions and accuse them of kidnapping, what gives ?

Why doesn't Obama just cut the Bull Sh*t...and simply pay the Iranians' ransoms in Nuclear Weapons.

Oh no, U.S citizens being kidnapped in Baghdad.

What a great Legacy their leaders left in the region. It's the last place any westerner should be, unless of course, you can make a fortune from whatever you are there for.

It's time for "guardians Of The Solar System" to defeat League of the Righteous.
(rips off shirt and shows a stained t-shirt over a beer belly)

The Obama administration will forcefully retaliate by releasing more GITMO prisoners and passing more gun laws.

Compared to the millions killed there since the U.S led invasion?

Sure it's sad, nobody deserves to lose their life, nobody.

TPB are do not want the Iranian situation change. Whip up some more voodoo.

The 1953 coup over oil, complements of the CIA, just might have left some ill feelings in Iran.

Since the Libyan Arms Warehouse (embassy) went down, Iran is the perfect "Boogie Man" to fund to continue the arms trade to ISIS.

Even John Kerry admits this new money the Admin released to Iran will be used to fund terrorism......



The "DEAL" was bad for a reason.

They're looking for a reason to unsettle Iranians.

They want revenge for the whole Shah business. It feels like a chapter of Star Wars.

Obama paid Iran ransom money for the last batch of captives, so of course Iran will continue with what has worked. Iran teaches that same principle to all their terror groups they sponsor.

Honestly I don't know why were suddenly using the word militia and changing the lexicon with which describes how we view our middle eastern dissidents.

Can someone make this make sense to me?

It was an easy insert for the propaganda against the meaning of the word "Militia".

The subliminal message is directed at Americans.

2 birds with 1 stone concept.

Good catch.

Man just shut up. This is happening because Obama paid up for the other people.

So, we only get upset when they are American citizens I take it?

What about the Alawites who were kidnapped in Syrian and taken to Raqqa?

Does anyone care that they were crucified or beheaded? Or does it not matter because they are Middle Eastern?
