Insurgents Claim They Grabbed Two U.S. Soldiers

I really do hope this is a bullshit claim by the insurgent group:

BAGHDAD, June 19 -- More than 8,000 U.S. and Iraqi troops scoured villages south of Baghdad on Monday for two soldiers missing since an attack four days ago, as an insurgent group linked to al-Qaeda in Iraq claimed that it had abducted the Army privates.

The claim was made in an Internet posting by the Mujaheddin al-Shura Council and could not be verified. Maj. Todd Breasseale, a Marine spokesman in Baghdad, said that the soldiers' whereabouts remained unknown and that "there is no indication that any reports of a kidnapping are authentic."

The military identified the missing soldiers as Pfc. Kristian Menchaca, 23, of Houston and Pfc. Thomas L. Tucker, 25, of Madras, Ore. They were attacked at a checkpoint near Yusufiyah, south of Baghdad. A third soldier, Spec. David J. Babineau, 25, of Springfield, Mass., was killed in the incident.

Coming on the heels of the Zaraqwi killing, I really worry for what these fuckers might do to these two soldiers. If insurgents/terrorists really did capture them, they're going to want to make a point to the American public, and they're going to want to make it gruesome.

I hope the 8,000 troops looking for these soldiers find them soon.

Sadly, I don't think its bullshit..they would of found the bodies by now has hard as they have been searching for these guys.. :(
I heard the news this morning. Now I see the American military is confirming. Awful.
