This is an actual e-mail from a senior watch officer monitoring the battle in Fallujah...
There is a legitimate, credentialed, Iraqi Reporter named Fathi Ghanim Al Iraqia attached with 4th BN, 1st Bde of the Iraqi forces (with 6th Plt?).
Earlier today he took some pictures of 4th BN Iraqi wounded. The Iraqi soldiers he was with took exception to him doing this. He says he deleted the photos from his camera, but the Iraqi soldiers were still incensed and locked him in a closet somewhere in their zone.
He is calling the MEF PAO on his cell phone from the closet.
We need to get him released.
Please get a hold of the LNO there and work the issue. Let us know your progress and when you find him.
