A Break in Triangle of Death Abductions?

U.S. and Iraqi forces, raiding a suspected Al Qaeda safe house near the site of the Golden Dome bombings last week in Samarra, have found what are believed to be the military identification cards of two missing American soldiers abducted last month in the Triangle of Death south of Baghdad.
The ID cards of Specialist Alex R. Jimenez, 25, of Lawrence, Massachusetts, and Private Byron W. Fouty, 19, of Waterford, Michigan, were found on June 9 about 90 miles north of where the two men disappeared in an ambush on May 12.

There has been increased Al Qaeda activity in the area, and the group is belived to be responsible for the destruction of two minarets adjacent to the Golden Dome on June 13.
The Islamic State of Iraq has announced the deaths of the two soldiers in commentary on the video, but provided no proof.
