Iraqi Soldiers Thwart Terror Suspects Disguised as Bride and Groom

Suspicious Iraqi soldiers thwarted terror suspects disguised as a bride and groom trying to pass through a checkpoint along with their "wedding procession" outside the Iraqi capital, the Iraqi Defense Ministry said Monday.

The procession Sunday near Taji, about 12 miles north of Baghdad, raised suspicion among the soldiers because most of those celebrating were men, an official in the ministry told The Associated Press. Soldiers searched the car carrying the purported bridge and groom and discovered the "couple" were two wanted men: Haider al-Bahadili and Abbas Latif.

Two other terror suspects were detained along with them, according to the Defense Ministry statement. The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to ministry orders, said the investigation into the suspects was ongoing and declined to release further information.

Maybe that's why he looks so unhappy--I guess white's not his color!

Holy Smokes, this is too much! Gad zooks, what an ugly ''bride''! Seriously though, this shows just how well the surge is working an just how desparate the ''brave jihadis'' are. they have to disguise themselves as women. Too much. J'Mac.

I'm surprised that they took the animals alive. Usually they are rigged to explode. Maybe they got some of the higher ups who don't like going to allah in a thousand pieces. Are they afraid that their death god would be incapable of putting them together again in time to face the virginal camels?
