Who We Fight

Bill Roggio reports coalition forces killing and capturing Iranian agents in Iraq – hopefully including this psychopath (my ellipsis)

(Imad Fayez) Mugniyah began his career in terrorism in the 1970s with Force 17, the personal bodyguard detachment for Yassar Arafat. He later joined Hezbollah.

His infamous terror attacks include

the April 1983 bombing of the U.S. embassy in Beirut, killing 63;

the October 1983 simultaneous truck bombings on the U.S. Marine and French paratrooper barracks in Beirut, killing 241 Marines and 58 French soldiers;

the hijacking of TWA 847 (and the murder of Robert Stethem);

the kidnappings and murders of U.S. military, intelligence and diplomatic personnel in Beirut throughout the 1980s;

the bombing of the Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1992, killing 29 people;

the bombing of a Jewish cultural center in 1994, killing 86 people.

He is suspected of directinvolvement in the 1996 bombing of the Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia, killing 19 U.S. servicemen. He was responsible for capturing three Israeli soldiers in Lebanon and the abduction of an Israeli colonel in Kuwait in 2000.

Mugniyah has extensive links with the Iranian intelligence services…

In 1996, Clinton vetoed an operation that was within hours of killing or capturing Mugniyah.
