A Marine Arabic translator, of the Force Recon attachment
to the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit, prepares to interrogate an
Iraqi prisoner April 12, 2003 in central Iraq, north of Nasiriyah.
The prisoner and two others were picked up fleeing from the Marines
and trying to discard military uniforms and IDs. Force Recon is the
Marines equivalent of Special Forces, Marines tasked with recon and
other sensitive missions in small groups.
