A US Army captain in Iraq helped crack a plot to bomb a Danish school after gleaning crucial details from documents recovered from extremists, the Pentagon said on Wednesday.
Army Captain Bradley Grimm, who is based at Al-Asad airbase in Iraq’s Anbar province, had “helped develop a system to speed the flow of intelligence from here on the ground to various national capitals,” Baghdad-based spokesman Colonel Steve Warren said.
Grimm gleaned “actionable intelligence” from “captured documents” belonging
to foreign fighters with ties to Denmark, Warren said.
“Brad’s work likely saved the lives of Danish citizens,” Warren said, without providing additional details of the plot itself.
