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.

Most likely he was driving without an escort, which is often the case and always puzzling. Reminds me of the incident a few weeks ago where dozens of Iraqis were killed by a car bomb while standing in line to join the Iraqi Army. How difficult can it be to prevent an automobile loaded with explosives to pull up to a large crowd on an army base?

Well, they do tend to weigh over a ton - and if they have any speed whatsoever they have a bit of momentum to shut down!

But you are right, it seems a lot of the contractor workers (in particular truckdrivers) are pretty much on their own. Although, that big ambush by the airport a few weeks back had military escort with it and they just ended up being killed on the spot or executed later.

I think they'll release him in a month's time... He's muslim, it would only make the muslim community more anti-insurgents if they killed him...
On the other hand, if they release him, they appear merciful and sympathetic to Muslim people in general..
