Insurgents Calling & Threatening Army
This is what can happen when the personal information of every one of your soldiers goes missing. This is chilling.
A bizzare bizarre story from the Telegraph:
The extent of the problem emerged in a restricted Army
document issued to soldiers of the London Regiment, a Territorial Army
unit, which has soldiers from its ranks serving in Iraq.
The document warns soldiers preparing to take part in operations
that insurgents in southern Iraq have managed to obtain the home
telephone numbers of soldiers by using electronic intercept devices to
hack into mobile phone systems.
It is understood that the threats range from claims that a husband
or son is dead or will be killed fighting in Iraq, to verbal abuse.
Many of those who have received calls say that they were made by people
with a poor command of English or with a Middle Eastern accent.
The military document states that there have been “many instances in
the last weeks of relatives and friends of personnel serving abroad on
operations getting nuisance phone calls” from Iraq.
I can’t find any mention of this happening to U.S. troops and their families.
