I wonder if the press will point out over and over and over that these 1ID soldiers arrested and jailed these folks attempting to murder them, instead of just blowing them away.

Probably not.
In the second incident, a combat patrol followed a white pickup truck after a mortar attack at 12:54 p.m. Sunday against a base near Baqouba, about 40 miles northeast of Baghdad.

The patrol, from the 2nd Battalion, 63rd Armor Regiment, based in Vilseck, Germany, tracked the truck to a house and found 10 people unloading a cache of weapons, according to the 1st ID report.

The cache included two Russian-made PKM machine guns with 2,600 rounds of 7.62 mm ammunition.

Soldiers escorted three of the men to jail.
