Purported video of US Apache helicopter being shot down over Al-faji 2 Feb 07

Islamic State of Iraq Claims Responsibility for Shooting Down an American Apache Helicopter in al-Taji
By SITE Institute

February 2, 2007

The Islamic State of Iraq claims responsibility for shooting down an American Apache helicopter today, Friday, February 2, 2007, in the area of al-Taji, in a communiqué issued by the group this day. The State warns that the skies over Iraq are forbidden to the “enemies of Allah,” and its soldiers have been granted “new ways” to confront enemy aircraft. According to media reports, a U.S. helicopter was observed today to have been downed near a U.S. air base in al-Taji, north of Baghdad.

The Islamic State of Iraq was established to protect the Sunni Iraqi people and defend Islam, by the Pact of the Scented People. It is composed of a variety of insurgency groups, including the Mujahideen Shura Council in Iraq, Conquering Army [Jeish al-Fatiheen], Army Squad of the Prophet Muhammad [Jund al-Sahaba], Brigades of al-Tawhid Wal Sunnah, and Sunni tribes. It claims a presence in the governorates of Baghdad, Anbar, Diyala, Kirkuk, Salah al-Din, Ninawa, and parts of Babel and Wasit, and is headed by the Emir of the Believers, Abu Omar al-Baghdadi.

The Islamic State of Iraq is what AQ calls itself now. Looked like an SA-7 type missile but the video was a bit choppy.

The command today announced changes to flight operations in Iraq. Obviously the changes werent discussed. If Syria and or Iran are smuggling in advanced Russian SAM's then that should create some pressure to send a message.

Its fucking disgusting that the US can't even go on National and International TV and show some of the recovered missles.
  I guess 1) the TinFoilers and Trolls would not believe them 2) Some of us would demand retribution...

Nuke Iran from Orbit -- its the only way to be sure....
