Go to this Fox link, Americans Push Deeper Into Fallujah go to the right hand side of the page and watch the video entitled, "Closing In," for the latest from a Retired Army LtCol with TF 2/2 in the city. TF 2/2 just destroyed an enemy force of 25 insurgents. Other highlights from this report:
-"massive artillery prep was just executed."
-"soldiers are continuing to clear house-by-house."
-says they are "in the extreme southeastern portion" of the city
-says "enemy strongpoints" are composed of "multiple two-three man anti-armor killer teams."
The article linked says, "U.S. forces are taking incoming fire from mobs of insurgents on the city's perimeter. To fight back, Marines are calling in air strikes."
If there are mobs, then our cordon is working. This is excellent news.
An alert reader has emailed that another embed report from Fox details the ambush of 9 Army armored vehicles in the city.
All of these reports indicate the final salient for the defense.
Fox is promising two hours of Fallujah coverage from 3-5p central, but is currently in a post-orgasmic state about the Peterson verdict. I'd much rather hear North give his thoughts.
