  15. 15. Hostage rescue: armed and dangerous
  16. 16. Operation Codename: Anaconda Communications: MNF Command Authority, Colonel Stone Ops Intel: One of the hostages, pictured on the right, is an internationally known physician associated with the World Relief Organization. She and a small team of relief workers went to the isolated island of Ayab following a typhoon to provide medical assistance and evacuation of island inhabitants before another expected typhoon hits the island in the next 48 hours. The escaped interpreter reported the physician was wounded in the leg and the other remaining hostage was shot dead on the attempted escape. Slide courtesy of Dr. Andrew Stricker Dr. Algernon Loire OPERATION PRE-BRIEF
  17. 17. Operation Codename: Anaconda Communications: MNF Command Authority, Colonel Stone Ops Intel: The island of Ayab has an abandoned WWII era u-boat base located on a lagoon inlet from the south bay. The island is hilly and rocky with sparse vegetation. It is believed the insurgents have fortified the u-boat base. Satellite photos suggest the presence of underground tunnels. Slide courtesy of Dr. Andrew Stricker South lagoon and U-boat base location OPERATION PRE-BRIEF
  18. 18. Operation Codename: Anaconda Communications: MNF Command Authority, Colonel Stone OPERATION PRE-BRIEF Map by Dr. Andrew Stricker, 2008 COA: The team will be inserted on the southeast side of the lagoon entrance under the cover of darkness. Using zodiac crafts the team will proceed to the lower u-boat docking area and recon the warehouse. An exit defense zone will also be established for the extraction. Via intercepted cell phone calls, MNF intel reports the hostages are likely located in the underground u-boat quarters. Extraction of the hostages should proceed back to the defense zone for zodiac evac. Be prepared to adapt COA depending on situational factors. Mission duration NTE 2 hrs.
