Iraq: What The SAEN Won't Show You
Members of Alpha Task Force, 2nd Squadron, 11th Armored Calvary Unit, hand out candy while providing security for the 155 Brigade Combat Team Psyops team after conducting raids of multiple targets located in the city of Hashwah, Iraq, on March 5, 2005. This was a joint mission with the Iraqi National Guard and Hilla Swat teams that resulted in the capture of over 60 suspected insurgent participants. The 155 BCT Psyops unit conducted a propaganda campaign following the raid that distributed informationto the Hashwah residents stating that coalition forces were making strides to make Iraq a terrorist free country. If you are saying to yourself gee, I don't think the SAEN ever shows pictures like this... you'd be right!
