**Breaking** Bodies of 2 missing U.S. soldiers found (?)**

CNN just spoke with a U.S. military spokesperson in Iraq who gave scant details regarding whether or not the bodies were truly those of the 2 missing soldiers, Pfc. Kristian Menchaca and Pfc. Thomas Tucker, pending proper DNA identification and notification of the families.

A news briefing is scheduled for 8:30 AM (EST)

Update: Fox News, about 2 mins. after CNN brought the story, are using different language, citing Iraqi officials, specifically Maj. Gen. Abdul-Aziz Mohammed, confirm the bodies are Pfcs. Menchaca and Tucker, yet official U.S. confirmation is still pending.

This doesn't look good.

Please pray for the families of Private Menchaca and Tucker.

Paul @ Wizbang reports (thanks to a tip from Talksmack and Newsbusters) that Ken MacKenzie, uncle of Army Pfc. Kristian Menchaca's full sentiments are not being conveyed in their entirety...
