One aspect in the case of illegally-imprisoned US Special Forces soldier Jack Idema that bears looking at in detail is the work he was doing in Afghanistan in the weeks prior to his arrest.

To listen to the media, Karzai and US State Department tell it, you could be forgiven for thinking that Jack and his men were just trawling Afghanistan for people they suspected of links to terrorism in a quite random fashion; that they were common bounty hunters and their operation was amateurish. In fact, Task Force Sabre 7 (Jack’s team) were highly-professional, and focussed on preventing a group of Islamofascists from carrying out a series of devastating attacks.

The following is from a press release Jack handed to the media at his August-September 2004 ‘trial’. Although it fully explains his team’s mission, and its importance, no one in MSM ran the story:

After contacting the Pentagon we acted, immediately deploying to Afghanistan, where, working with our former Northern Alliance allies, we captured first Ghulamsaki, the terrorist the FBI was informed of previously, and then subsequently captured 95% of the entire al-Qaida and Hezb-i-Islami terrorist operation cell behind the plot. In four different operations and raids, we captured terrorists, explosives, detonators, and vehicles that were to be used in the terrorist plot.

The plot involved the assassination of the Afghan President, Minister of Defense, Minister of Education, two ambassadors, and the leaders of Massoud’s Jamiat Party. Had any of them been successful it would have resulted in certain civil war and the deaths of untold Afghan and American lives.

Alongside these assassinations, the terrorist cell Idema was hunting also had big plans when it came to the US troops stationed at Bagram Airbase — Their intention was to turn one of the daily fuel deliveries (that is, four tankers laden with gasoline) into huge firebombs. Here’s Jack’s description of this planned-attack:

Think about this: Four fuel tankers driving into Bagram Air Base (fuel tankers are constantly daily arriving at Bagram) laden with gas and explosives as they passed through the gates. The explosives would never be discovered as the terrorists were using a combination of plastic explosives and incendiary explosives which American bomb dogs could not detect.

The result would have been flaming bodies of hundreds of American soldiers in a scene that would have dwarfed the Beirut Marine barracks bombing and brought back the vision of burning victims plunging to their deaths on 9/11.

My President said, in September 2001, that all Americans were now soldiers, in the war on terror.

He called upon each of us to do whatever we could to stop terror and save American lives. I have done that.


For his trouble, Jack Idema was falsely accused, arrested, tortured, show-trialed and illegally-imprisoned. We need to bring this man home. Now.

So what can we do? Well, anyone reading this with their own blog can sign up for the weekly Free Jack Idema Blogburst by emailing Cao or Rottweiler Puppy for details. I’d urge everyone to do this, as we’re still terribly short on takers. If you want to know more about the story, Cao’s Blog has a large section devoted to Jack Idema. There’s also a timeline here, and, of course, a huge amount of information is available over at SuperPatriots, without whose work none of us would have learned about Jack’s story.
