An Iraqi insurgent group called 'Iraqi Legitimate Resistance' have abducted an Egyptian truck driver for American forces. A video has been released
to Al-Jazeera, in which it shows men armed and masked around the Egyptian, Alsayeid Mohammed Alsayeid Algarabawi.
The group, calling itself the "Iraqi Legitimate Resistance," said they took the man, who identified himself as Alsayeid Mohammed Alsayeid
Algarabawi, captive while he was driving a truck of fuel for U.S. forces from Saudi Arabia.
In the video, members of the group stood armed and masked around Algarabawi.

This is not a group I have heard of, and they seem to be wanting to get into the limelight... We must also consider HOW
the insurgents seem to
be managing to kidnap so many people.. It has already been thought that they might be using beautiful women to lure men off base into somewhere easier
to capture them, but surely in light of Cpl Hassoun, the American forces must have upped security requirements for the bases..
A Boolean search of Above Top Secret revealed little, if any information, about this group.
It is my personal opinion that the Egyptian will be released as long as he denounces America and tells them that he will not work for America again,
as has been the general trend with recent Muslim capturings.
