The battle fought in Fallujah, Iraq in 2004 was of the bloodiest for American troops. Nearly 100 American troops were killed. Now, according to news reports, militants, perhaps with ties to Al-Qaeda, have taken control of the city. U.S. veterans who fought there in 2004 have been reacting to the news. We’ll talk with one of them, Ross Caputi. He served in Fallujah and is the founder of The Justice for Fallujah Project. (Photo: AP)
