Here's an after shot of one door (note the splintered section from being kicked in). Sgt Shriver completes checking the empty room as our 'terp (behind Shriver) talks to the watchman, who was sleeping on a mat outside the building when we first approached. An IP stands to the right, practicing their own particular brand of weapon safety (that's a joke, since he's got his own weapon pointed up and pretty much AT his own head).
One of the houses we search belongs to a Kurd who's living in the mostly-Turkoman neighborhood. While everyone in the area is friendly and accommodating, he goes one step further, offering chai and cake.
