The Jihad Information Brigade issued today, September 21, 2005, a collection of messages allegedly written by American soldiers and civilians responding to e-mails the group had sent as part of their ?information war? campaign of exposing the ?true situation of what?s happening in Iraq.? The letters, according to the group, are an indication of the demoralizing effect the war has had upon the soldiers? psychology, which will have a ?great impact on speeding their fleeing [Iraq].? Further, the group promises that they will continue this course to humiliate the Americans and ?destroy their hopes.?
The group provides thirty-six of these letters, in English and followed by translations into Arabic, removing any information which may indicate the author?s identity. Each response is very condemning of the War in Iraq, derogatory towards U.S. President George W. Bush, and doubtful of the war?s intentions.
The Jihad Information Brigade issued a claim on August 19, 2005 , that they disseminated their propaganda about the ?reality of the defeat facing Allah?s enemies in Iraq,? to approximately 1,600 websites and e-mails, including more than 60,000 people in the military, including their families, and ?some of the public figures.?
The letters and a translation of the introductory message are provided to our Intel Service members.
