The U.S. Army released documents that reveal that the American troops have in at least two incidents kidnapped and jailed the wives of Iraqi suspects in order to of "leverage" their husbands to surrender, The Associated Press reported.

The documents describing the two incidents which took place in 2004 are among hundreds the Pentagon was forced to release under U.S. court order to meet an American Civil Liberties Union request for information on detention practices.


In one memo, a Pentagon intelligence officer describe an incident that occurred on May 9, 2004 during a U.S.-led raid on what is said to be a suspect house in Tarmiya, northwest of the Iraqi capital, according to AP.
"During the pre-operation brief it was recommended by TF personnel that if the wife were present, she be detained and held in order to leverage the primary target's surrender," the 14-year veteran officer said, adding that "the 28-year-old woman had three young children at the house, one being as young as six months and still nursing," wrote the intelligence officer, whose signature was blacked out on this for-the-record memorandum about his complaint.
The U.S. forces held the woman for two days and then released her after he complained, he further stated.
The second incident, described in sketchy detail in e-mail exchanges among six U.S. Army colonels, took place in June 2004. It involved a number of female detainees who were held in northern Iraq by the Stryker Brigade of the 2nd Infantry Division.


An e-mail sent by a military police colonel to staff officers of the U.S. northern command, stated that the Iraqi police would not take control of the women, held without charges being brought against them.
Another one sent by a command staff officer to an officer of the unit holding the women, stated that "What are you guys doing to try to get the husband — have you tacked a note on the door and challenged him to come get his wife?"


Two days later, the brigade's deputy commander advised the higher command, "As each day goes by, I get more input that these gals have some info and/or will result in getting the husband."
"These ladies fought back extremely hard during the original detention. They have shown indications of deceit and misinformation," he went on.
A U.S. intelligence officer reported that in one case, a secretive task force locked up the young mother of a nursing baby, while in the second, involving another female detainee, one American colonel suggested to another that they catch her husband by tacking a note to the door telling him "to come get his wife."

We really need to wake up..


And why should ye not fight in the cause of Allah and of those who, being weak, are ill-treated (and oppressed)?- Men, women, and children, whose cry is: "Our Lord! Rescue us from this town, whose people are oppressors; and raise for us from thee one who will protect; and raise for us from thee one who will help!" (4:75)


These kufar are taking advantage of us so much now.. subhan Allaah.


“If you deal in usury and hang unto the tails of cows, being satisfied with cultivation and ceasing to take part in Jihad, Allah will inflict a humiliation upon you which will not be removed until you return to your religion.”
(Reported by Ahmad and Abu Dawud)


Keeping oneself busy with trade and dealing in usury is a cause of the humiliation of Muslims and their being put under their enemies’ thumb. If they abandon Jihad, they will be exposed to humiliation, until they return to their religion and abide by its behests and take part in Jihad.

akhi ghuraba, that hadith is showin that we will keep getting humiliated until we return back to our religion, that means returning back to jihad fi sabilillah (in the way of Allaah, against the kuffar.) If we dont help our own brothers and sisters, then do you really think we can become succesful?
