However, Jaffer refused to comply and the team engaged the insurgent with well-aimed and proportional fire...Intelligence shows a clear link to his group partnering with outside Persian (read Iranian-Sparker911) extremists, whose goal is to destroy the legitimate government of Iraq and create instability in the region...Coalition Forces served as advisers during the operations.
