BREAKING: Several Americans ‘disappear’ in Iraq, U.S. Embassy says 


Americans kidnapped in Bagdhad


The U.S. Embassy in Baghdad confirmed several Americans had disappeared in Iraq on Sunday and the State Department said it was working with Iraqi authorities to locate them.

Al Arabiya first reported the news that three Americans were kidnapped. The U.S. government didn’t immediately confirm a kidnapping or the number of people involved.

“We are aware of reports that American citizens are missing in Iraq,” State Department spokesperson John Kirby told Fox News. “The safety and security of American citizens overseas is our highest priority.‎ We are working with the full cooperation of the Iraqi authorities to locate and recover the individuals. Due to privacy considerations, I have nothing further.”

          They are separate countries and used to be on opposite sides of the Islamic fence until we disposed of Saddam. Now, under the Shia, it is turning into a satellite state of Iran.

        If you are resting hope on ANY president curing our ills, you’re going to be sorely disappointed. No American president has the power to do anything but make speeches. This, if they allow him in, will be the same with Trump. Doesn’t matter which party the puppet comes from, it’s still just a puppet.

    BTW… “Veterans Lives DON’T matter!” Just ask the V A and US Govt!!!
