The Fight for Mosul

    “The Islamic State of Iraq is faced with an extraordinary crisis, especially in al-Anbar...The renegades and Americans started launching their attacks to destroy us. We lost cities, and afterwards villages, and the desert became a dangerous refuge. We got away from people and found ourselves in a wasteland desert.” - Al Qaeda Iraq letter captured in late Summer 2007

As our enemy's areas of influence diminish, they are being pushed to a few different places - one being Mosul.  Below are combat photos of the 2-2 MiTT team with their Iraqi counterparts engaging AQI in Mosul on January 23rd.  (The MiTT teams do not get enough credit for their hard work and courage):
