Introduction

Today on the BBC news website, a video was shown of an abducted U.S. Military contractor. The article claims that the flag in the background is that of As-saib Ahl al Haq, which translates as "The League of the Righteous" or "The League of the Virtuous."

"Asa'ib Ahl al-Haq (AAH; Arabic: عصائب أهل الحق ĎAṣayib Ahl al-Haq, "League of the Righteous") also known as the Khazali Network is an Iraqi Shi'a Islamist paramilitary group operating in Iraq and Syria. It is known as Iraq's largest "Special Group", the Americans' term for Iran-backed Shia paramilitaries in Iraq. The group emerged in 2006."
