Missing soldiers' IDs posted in video
by UPI

BAGHDAD - U.S. forces in Iraq Monday condemned a posting on an Islamic Web site of identification cards belonging to two missing American soldiers.

"We condemn the tactics used by these terrorists, and are using all means available to pursue those responsible," said Brig. Gen. Kevin Bergner, Multinational Force-Iraq spokesman.

Above the photo identification cards of Spc. Alex R. Jimenez , 25, of Lawrence, Mass., and Pvt. Byron Fouty, 19, of Waterford, Mich., is a message in Arabic that says, "Bush is the reason for the loss of your prisoners," CNN reported.

CNN reported it could not verify the authenticity of the video, but a military official told the network the cards appeared legitimate.

Jimenez, Fouty and Pfc. Joseph J. Anzack Jr., 20, of Torrance, Calif., were captured in a May 12 ambush that left four other U.S. soldiers dead. Anzack's body was found May 23.

The video also included images of a masked man who appeared to be planning the ambush, images of what appeared to be the attack and pictures of the soldiers' possessions, including credit cards, a cross and money, CNN reported.
