IRAQ: Abandoned by the U.S. military, 200 U.S. contractors are surrounded by ISIS terrorists

AP_IRAQ_BALADAbout 200 Americans under contract with the Department of Defense at Balad Air Force Base in Iraq are trapped by the al-Qaeda-inspired jihadists who have seized control of two cities and are now threatening Baghdad.

WND (h/t Susan & Linda)  The sources, private contractors who have recently returned to the U.S. from Iraq, said Friday their former colleagues effectively have been abandoned by the U.S. military and are fighting for their lives against an army of jihadists surrounding the base who belong to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS.

The U.S. contractors are at Balad to help the Pentagon prepare the facilities for the delivery of the F-16 aircraft the Obama administration has agreed to provide the Iraqi government. The surrounded Americans said they currently are under ISIS fire from small arms, AK47s, and rocket propelled grenades, or RPGs.


The contractors so far have been able to hold the base, but those on the scene reported it was only a matter of time before the ISIS terrorists succeeded in breaking through the perimeter. The sources confirmed the contractors were still under siege, despite an Associated Press report Thursday, citing U.S. officials, that three planeloads of Americans were being evacuated from Balad.

WND has learned from sources that the jihadists have closed down escape routes, and the U.S. Air Force is in a stand-down position. U.S. forces are not assisting even with air cover so a private extradition flight could land for a rescue, the sources said. Privately scheduled exit flights have fallen through, sources said, as several private pilots originally scheduled to make the flights have quit.

The sources contend the U.S. military could provide the necessary air cover to protect C-130s or other air transport craft sufficient to make the evacuation, but so far officials have refused to get involved. Balad Air Force Base has been under attack since Wednesday, when ISIS rebels seized the nearby town of Tikrit, the birthplace of Saddam Hussein.

The attacking ISIS forces approached Balad Air Force Base in trucks Wednesday and called through loudspeakers for all private security forces and Iraqi special military to leave immediately or die.

The U.S. private contractors in touch with WND reported that after hearing the broadcast, the private security forces and the Iraqi military defending the base dropped their weapons and ran. The American contractors collected the weapons left behind and were able to hold off further immediate advances.

  1. if anyone thinks civilian garb is going to protect them think again they dont care who or what you are if your not sunni your dead either by their favorite pastime decapitation. or shots to the head i think it depends on your sect if your a muslim its shooting infidels and apostates beheading

  2. I was stationed in or been in most of the bases in this article and know the lay-out . These are important air bases.

  3. You don’t have it from me.

    But we can be glad that there are no WMD’s in Irak right now, right?
    They would’ve told us, right?
    Nothing distinctily nuclear, right?
    Just some “Blockbuster”, right?
    Gotta love U.S. misinforment, right?
    Let you sleep better at night, right?

  4. What part of 9-11 “don’t ” you remember? They said they “were gonna DESTROY us from ‘within’!!! Remember now? This terrorist-in-chief is KILLING AMERICA, & our contractors, apparently now, too!!! “This” IS “WHY” he purged top military brass! This IS “WHY” every new enlistee “MUST” sign this clause…that they’d be WILLING “to fire upon AMERICANS!” Hopefully, some w/sense will REFUSE THE ORDER!! This is “why” he’s passing all these f**ked-up laws…he WANTS US TO REVOLT,so “HE” can GIVE THE ORDER,folks!! He is NOT “AMERICAN”!! Was PROVEN TO BE FAKE, was computer-generated, using layers to build! People, look up this Indonesian cult, SUBUD organization his mother belonged to there!! VERY INTERESTING! You will see!! He “IS” the anti-CHRIST! GOD BLESS AMERICA!! The time to pull “together” is NOW!! TIME “IS” OF THE ESSENCE!!

  5. Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq & Saudi Arabia should have been nuked 13 years ago. We are paying the price for failing to do the right thing. We will be paying for a long time.

    Vote in the primaries: not for pusillanimous AssWholes and not for God damned Muslims. Do not beat around the Bush again!!!

  6. It’s funny how you idiots red necks think Obama is Muslim or how Muslims are the enemy this site is owned and controlled by the the Israeli intelligence spewing out hatred while having American patriots fight their battle cause god knows theirs children and blood is worth more than all the world so again wake up fellow Americans lets take our. Country back as real Christians in gods name we trust

    • He IS a muslim and muslims ARE the enemy. Don’t you read the headlines in your favorite leftist rag?

      You’re right, we ARE Israeli Intelligence and we know where you live.

      I see you’re in Canada – a draft dodger, no doubt.

    • Typical of idiots like you Gaberiel (is that a typo?), thinking that those hating and criticizing the scum and pointing out some facts about Obama can only do so because controlled by, of course, the Israelis, Zionists and so on.

      Well guess what, unlike what you “believe”, I for one and quite a fair number of others don’t need anyone or anything to do just that on our own, let alone be controlled by anything or anyone.

      You are what’s the problem, by talking like this you sound no better than the obscurantist vermin.

    • Just when you think people are perhaps starting to wake up to obama and his muslim brotherhood cultists, along comes another naive, brain-dead dhimmi like this gaberiel. (doesn’t deserve a capital)
      So gaberiel, muslims aren’t the enemy? Then just who are American patriots fighting in order to take back their country, Catholics, Buddhists, Presbyterians? Who are Americans fighting in Mid-East wars? (or would be if the unspeakable muslim traitor obama hadn’t stopped Americans fighting against his muslim friends)

      Sounds a bit like a ‘mudslime’ to me–certainly no Christian.
      Long live Israel!! Right, gaberiel?

    • Speaking of uneducated bumpkins, you can’t even spell your own moniker correctly. “Gaberiel?” It should be, Gabriel, or better yet, how about Gaybriel? “idiots rednecks?” You’re a first class, inbred wussy from Stormfront, aren’t you sissy boy?

      Well, watch your tongue lest you invite a drone strike against you, launched by the dreaded “Zionist Entity,” or horrors! Your children abducted by said entity, who’s precious blood is needed so we can make our matzo balls as per Talmud!

      “Oy Vey!!”


      (Psst, did you know that your shiny, trendy tinfoil headgear is made by Reynolds Wrap, a Jewish company? Yea, that’s right, it emits a signal for drones to lock on to. Better ditch it fast!)

      Silly goyim, again I say, “Muahahahahahahaha!!

    • It’s funny how you idiot claim that the site is run by IDF intelligence just because it’s antiislamic. By that logic, 969 Burmese Buddhist movement support page on FB is also run by IDF? Since when a Christian doesn’t write the word ‘God’ with the capital letter at the start? Try harder, leftie roach.

    • Taking up the fight for Israel is not some bull crap that was just thought up last night. It’s protecting someone who is like minded in liberty who believes not only at a religious level but at a personal level being free to chose and do as you please in the pursuit of happiness to all mankind. Me personally, I have friends that are of all races, but Israel is the Only country in that part of the world that makes a stand for what is right! Just because they and I believe in the same one true God, that’s just a bonus. The only thing I can really say about Israel, be patient, this idiot lunatic at 1600 Pennsylvania will be gone soon, patients, patients patients. For us to have someone that is a complete moron who usurped the presidency steering us into the gate of demise, and still be where we’re at, we have a semi ok system. Just hoped that an impeachment was in our Future. Israel will always stand, and stand side by side with us stomping Islam terrorist back in hell where they belong. Stand strong, stand proud, stand loud!

  7. It is past time for an American Spring, like yesterday! We’re going to have to somehow take our country back by force of arms! Every damned day, another reprehensible scandal occurs with this traitorous administration! How much longer are we going to wait to be rid of this bastard 0bama?

    • It’s already been tried and failed. Several times. No I think we need to do it like we should. Even thou Obama cranks out illegal votes by the thousands, like what he did in the Carolinas 30,000 votes from non existent people, trying to get illegals voting rights, so even if you don’t live in the U.S. you can vote for our President, that’s the crap he’s trying to pull. This guy is evil. And he’s doing all he can to break America. We voted out half his moron support last election, we can clean the other half out in 2016, Hes also sided with Iran, and supports them whole heartedly, he’s even sending communications privately to Iranian leaders, whoever their pri mister is. Would that be nice to get some of those letters out in the public and post them to the news channels that will show them. He’s very angry that he can’t comtrol the press. He needs to go before he gives IRAN their nukes. But elections are 2016 and it can’t come soon enough. If that billionaire Sorros were to kick over, Obama would be in real trouble, that Sorros billionaire is one of Obamas biggest supports, that why he didn’t get popped for spending $3Millilon in ferguson Mo to start all those Race wars.

      • Sadly Soros’ money and projects will outlive the Judenratt bastard. That man is pure evil, especially for what he did to his own Jewish people in WW II.

  8. Obama see this as a way to empty Gitmo. Why no help for Americans? Same reason we sent nobody to save Stevens and his friends in Benghazi. Stevens was to be taken prisoner and used to swap gitmo detanees. Now obama has an even bigger picture to look at. Hundreds of Americans taken prisoner. Surely Obama will be happy to empty gitmo to get these Americans back. Sounds crazy? Not really.

  9. These are Americans in a bad place and, where they went in with the understanding of US military protection, IMHO, the military is obligated to protect them.
    Time for the military to tell o’shitbag to piss off and do their damned jobs – protecting Americans~!

    • It’s not the military’s job to protect. It’s the presidents and the fracking 535 legislators. The military follows orders not dictates them. If they do anything they should arrest obozo and the legislators that back this traitor.

  10. O.K., Mr. Schmuck President. No man left behind. Or is that only for deserters?
    I’d like to see a team of Navy Seals grab that liar-in-chief and drop him right in the middle of his ISIS buddies. Then use Air Force 1 to rescue the contractors.

  11. It doesn’t matter if obombya abandons 200, or 2000, or 2 million, or 200 million. To the liberal mainstream media he is still god, and any criticism is racism. To his true believers(the majority of Blacks, Jews, illegal aliens, and other assorted liberals/leftists), he is still god.

  12. What will jt take for America to take back their country from these terrorist supporters in the White House? Time to lock and load is fast disappearing.

  13. This game is being orchestrated by the Shadows. Remember the Oil fields. Iraq, Kuwait, and Saudi Arabia. After abandoning everyone else will BO give the Saudi’s a helping hand? Consider that King Abdullah gave a Knighthood for being a warrior for
    Islam to BO while he lost his contact lens and bowed before the King. He will at least give the impression that he did or is doing. But nah! When the price of oil is $200.00 a barrel and is controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood, Al Qaeda etc. Terrorists! Just remember the Key Stone Pipeline, the Non Drilling off shore, the closing of oil reserves around this country, when in reality we have enough oil to be completely free from foreign pressure. Bo used the ecology to stop Oil, Coal and all types of sustainable energy as possible through the EPA. It’s primarily a farce. A few good things came out of the EPA, but mostly control of our lands with a hands off approach to all citizens. Not Good.

    How long do you think it will take to piss off people to start rioting in the streets and going after those that have caused this problem? Also remember the USA has been quartered by the mohommedists to be ready to fight in the streets, achieving a military conquest, that has only been dreamed of by super powers. But alas, the Shadows have figured wrongly. The American public is smarter than they thought and are almost entirely awake to the skeems and conjuring of the corrupt Government and the Shadows. Along with the subversion of the mohommedists. It will Back-Fire on them.
    We as a Nation will survive. Hurt but not dead. the Constitution will survive and be revitalized and cherished for what it is. The WORD.

    • Once Oil is out of bounds, price wise the fall of Capitalism will be the next victim of the lies and deceit of the Shadows. That is then coupled with BO care, to take complete control of your life with the educating of your children to fit into the slots prepared by the Common Core. All during this process the Chip “Mark of the Beast” will be implanted at a much faster pace. Beware!

  14. Did the contractors not hear the “hoof beats” of the jihadist coming? Are Americans deaf, dumb and blind now? Where is our CIA, NSA, et al. while this was happening and why did they not see it coming? How does a country twice the size of Texas lose a chunk the size of Texas in a few days and nobody saw it coming?

    • Because iraq is a pseudo nation. The creation of European and Turkish rulers crossing ethnic and religious fault lines. Notice the Kurdish Peshmerga took over the iraqi army and air force assets after the iraqi army bugged out. Not only that but they seized control of Kirkuk after the above mentioned bug out.

  15. “What difference does it make” if 200 American citizens are beheaded? Why would a FILTHY Muslim MOLE POTUS want to rescue non-Muslim American patriots?

  16. I also wonder how much of this is a result of their backward belief system that jinns etc are loose? They fear they are fighting some super natural beings type thing. Or the reputation of ISIS has somehow caused them to think of ISIS as super natural. Just a thought.

  17. Hmmm nice opportunity for the 0 to empty Guantanamo in a trade. That is if any of them are left with their heads on.

  18. Either something escapes me or I must be thick for this I don’t understand: these people are contracted by the Department of Defense, but yet, officials do not want involve themselves in a rescue operation? We are talking about American citizens, right ? Under contract by the US government, right? Who are under severe threat of imminent threat/death, right ? At this point, the window of opportunity for a rescue Op’ is viable, albeit not for long, right ?

    So what gives? Are you guys gonna have to suffer more “what difference does it makes” crap with loss of lives that could have been avoided? I really don’t understand, though I’m not that thick…

  19. Today Michael Savage mentioned on his radio show that the leader of ISIS was once held prisoner by America in Iraq. If true, what does this say about Obama’s release of the Taliban Five?

    • Obama is just looking after his Muslim Brotherhood Buddies. America is being destroyed from the inside. What better insider to have than the President . The most effective Muslim Plant ever.

  20. Obama rescued an American traitor, released top five Taliban terrorists to return to jihad and is refusing to rescue 200 decent Americans. It’s unforgivable.

    The title of Commander in Chief can no longer be said about Obama.
    TERRORIST in CHIEF is a more correct title.

  21. There are no traitors or deserters of the Bergdahl type at this base. This is why Obama has abandoned them. This could be worse than Benghazi in death count. They’re trapped with no where to go.
