40 Dead Americans - military would never let us hear of it
    #1410681 - 03/26/03 07:59 AM (14 years, 2 months ago)

Arab TV Crew Says Found
40 Dead US Soldiers
The following appeared in the letters section of WhatReallyHappened.com
3-26-3

"Sanwa ata Mosahra reporting. A film crew from al-Minar TV, a television network of Lebanon, stumbled across the bodies of about 40 US soldiers scattered in the desert outside Maseriah. Ali Fawsua a camera man for al-Minar said "It was obvious the soldiers had been in a major battle as there was empty ammunition casing everywhere".

"We searched around but could not find any dead Iraqi soldiers and must be thinking they took their dead and injured away from the battle" he added.

"We called on our satellite phone to our base camp and told them what we had found and they told the Americans where we were located".

"Soon some American helicopters came to us and the Americans took all our camera and recording equipment and smashed it. They told us to leave the area and say nothing of this finding".

"When we arrived back at our base to the south there were American military police everywhere and they destroyed all of our equipment and told us to leave Iraq immediately".

al-Minar has lodged a complaint with the IJCO and US with a claim for compensation for the many thousands dollars of destroyed equipment.

Very Interesting, but a letter sent from someone saying he is a reporter is not exactly a reliable source. I would need to see more evidence to believe it...although I certainly admit it is in the realms of possiblity.

I'm with Rono, it doesn't sound very reliable.

Because it's from Lebonese "reporters"?

Not at all...I meant that I could write a letter to that website and say that I was a reporter that found hundreds of WMD's hidden in a bunker in Iraq...

True..
I considered the possibility that it's a made up incident, but if it is, why only 40 dead soldiers?
Wouldn't it be more inflammatory and make for a 'better' article to say "At least 100 Americans dead" ?

I'm not saying it's a lie...I just want to see better evidence.

I agree though... more accounts from different people would be nice.

Perhaps you could show me where I said, that you said, it was a lie?

Don't be so defensive...I wasn't implying that you said anything.

Defensive? Not at all. However when you reply to me, as regards a reply I made to someone else, I felt the need to question you.

I actually managed to find some more on this...

USWAR/Some 40 US soldiers killed, injured or missed in Naseriah

Tehran, March 24, IRNA -- Some 40 US soldiers have been killed,
injured or missed in Naseriah, said Lebanese TV al-Minar on Monday.
Al-Minar said dead bodies of the US soldiers had been found near
Naseriah.
Meanwhile, Qatari al-Jazeera TV put number of Iraqi losses in
Monday bombardment of Baghdad at five, including a woman.
