The Global Islamic Media Front, an al-Qaeda mouthpiece, issued a 2:11 video and accompanying message today, November 16, 2005, which presents: ?The Americans in the Iraqi Mud.? The film depicts American soldiers, allegedly during one of their drills, when they are ?dumped in the Iraqi swamp? and appear to be stuck, not being able to maintain solid footing. According to the message, the world may look upon this as an example of the ?fragility of the defeated army, Allah willing, in the Land of Two Rivers (Iraq) and everywhere.?
