Ansar al-Sunnah Issues a Statement Denying the Signing of a Document Initiating Talks with American Forces, a Video of Two Captured National Guards, and Claims Responsibility for Bombing an American Humvee in Samarra
By SITE Institute
February 21, 2006

Ansar al-Sunnah issued a three-minute video on Sunday, February 19, 2006, that contains the ?confession? of two officers in the Iraqi National Guard. Each man is shown individually, blindfolded and sitting in front of a black banner and three masked men, who aim guns at their heads. A statement with the video indicates that the men were captured in an ambush south of Baghdad. Further, a message at the end of the video states that the group?s Shari?a Committee found the men guilty and they were executed.

In addition, the group issued a statement yesterday, February 20, denying having signed a document initiating talks with American forces. They state: ?This act is a proof of America?s state of weakness and confusion. This is the beginning of the end of these forces who declared war on Islam and Muslims.?

A communiqué also issued yesterday from Ansar al-Sunnah states that an improvised explosive package (IED) was planted in Samarra, at a ?special passage? that is difficult to access because of snipers. The explosive was detonated on an American Humvee.

The video and a translation of the three messages are provided to our Intel Service members.
