    Excellent news! I bet a lot of the people on here would have done absolutely nothing about that ghastly situation because war is wrong and America is always evil and Saddam wasn't such a bad guy and blah blah.

    America..... freedom hiding in every corner lol.

    Interesting indeed. According to the article:

    "The Kurdistan Region Security Council said 69 prisoners had been freed, but said that “an initial examination showed there are no Kurds among the rescued hostages.” There was no immediate explanation for the discrepancy with other accounts of the raid."

    "In a statement, the Pentagon said that five members of Isis were captured and an undisclosed number of others killed. It claimed the raid had yielded a mass of intelligence information."

    And lastly, one US soldier was wounded and subsequently died after coming under fire from the Isis compound. Additionally, 4 Iraqi troops were also wounded. RIP to the departed soldier.
