The sands of truth

It was September 5, 2005. I was a green beret of the U.S Army, I was deployed to Iraq on a mission to assassinate a Al Qaida general of the name Abdullah Yusuf Azzam with five other green berets. We we're clearing out a village he was supposedly in, but then everything went dark, my ears were ringing and I couldn't feel my legs.

He then looked at my other arm and raised the machete again, but before he could continue, green berets came bursting through the windows of the building and started to shoot the Al Qaida soldiers, however Abdullah escaped.

I sat and was startled to see I had some sort of bionic arm and legs. That's when he walked in, a tall and skinny man with a labcoat on. He then introduced himself,
