Ottawa - Canada's elite JTF-2 special forces apparently were 
"instrumental" in helping retrieve three western aid workers held 
captive in Baghdad.

The Defence Department refuses to confirm Canadian military 
involvement in the operation, but a source says the elite squad 
played a role in the rescue.

Defence officials say they never comment on any operations 
involving the commando force over concerns about putting future 
rescues at risk.

Pentagon officials also say that Canadian and British special 
forces took the reins of the ground operation.

British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw said Mounties were involved 
in the rescue, but an RCMP spokesman would not confirm that.
