Terrorists captured and cache found-MULTI-NATIONAL FORCE-IRAQ

TIKRIT, Iraq – Task Force Band of Brothers Soldiers from the 3rd Heavy Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, captured two terrorists as they attempted to hide a cache of weapons near Balad Jan. 18.

An observation team from 3HBCT spotted the men digging a hole in a suspicious location and a patrol was sent to look into the dig site and men involved.

The troops followed the men to a nearby house and after questioning the men about their activities, the Soldiers were led to the dig site by one of the suspects.

Several weapons were found at the site, including a mortar tube, 26 mortar rounds of different sizes, a rocket-propelled grenade launcher and several fuses. An explosive ordnance disposal team was called out and safely destroyed the cache at the site.

Both men were detained and taken to a nearby military base for further questioning and processing.

I keep seeing reports of "weapons cache found". Shouldn't this be sending "red flags" to or commanders on the ground. I don't think that these are weapons that were "looted" after the invastion or fall of Baghdad. The weapon flow into Iraq is unchecked. Thats because the borders are not sealed.
