John Issa, an interpreter who is an American citizen originally from Lebanon,
translates words on a Shiite flag found Monday night in the Hurriyah area of
Baghdad in a home once used as a kidnappers’ hide-out. The flag reads, "Muqtada
Sadr, savior of god," a reference to the Shiite cleric who heads the Mehdi Army,
c. 2008 (Shia).

Possibly a green-field flag of Muqtada al-Sadr's populist "Sadrist Movement";
