Fallujah's mosques hid arms, militants
Tom Squitieri, USA TODAY
The U.S. military captured at least 15 portable surface-to-air missiles capable of shooting down aircraft, dozens of mortar tubes and sophisticated anti-tank weapons among hundreds of weapons caches found in the Iraqi militant stronghold of Fallujah, according to a classified military report.
The report said that one out of every two mosques in Fallujah were used to hide fighters or weapons during a recent offensive. Fallujah is called the "city of mosques" because it has at least 100 such houses of worship.
If I am counting correctly that means over 50 mosques in Fallujah were used to store weapons, terrorists, or both.
"The amount of weapons was in no way just to protect a city," said Maj. James West, a Marine intelligence officer. "There was enough to mount an insurgency across the country."
... still waiting for the outrage from Muslims over the use of their holy sites as weapons storage facilities/bunkers for terrorists
