A mother watches U.S. soldiers search her home as her sons are told to stand with their faces to the wall during an early morning raid September 13, 2007 in the Hurriyah neighborhood of Baghdad, Iraq. Soldiers rousted a family from bed and interrogated the male members after receiving information that armed insurgents were staying in the residence. The soldiers found no illegal weapons or incriminating evidence. By John Moore/Getty Images.
