From DEBKAfile some good news.
Raiders of the Lost Ark, in actuality a combined force of American and Kurdish special operations troops again stand tall.
"US, Kurdish special forces raid ISIS prison in Iraq, free hostages"
"American and Kurdish commandos carried out a predawn raid on an ISIS prison in Hawija, west of Kirkuk, in northern Iraq on Thursday, freeing dozens of Kurdish hostages and taking several ISIS fighters captive."
During the Vietnam War these were called Bright Light missions. Never were able to rescue an American captive but did liberate many hundreds of allied South Vietnamese prisoners.
THESE TYPE OF MISSIONS GENERALLY ONLY HAVE A 50 % SUCCESS RATE!
"Make the enemy bleed, make them keep their head down, make them wonder where you are coming from!'
