Monsters behead yet another Iraqi

AQ-affiliated terrorists beheaded yet another one -- this time, an Iraqi accused of the crime of "collaboration" with US forces.

As usual, The Jawa Report is on top of the story with still pictures and the streamed video. (WARNING: LINK CONTAINS GRAPHIC IMAGES!)

Conflicting reports indicate that the man murdered by the Army of Ansar al-Sunnah in a new beheading video was named either Yassar Musil or Seif Adnan Kanaan. The following AP story, as well as the Reuters story in the extended entry, also miss some other crucial facts about the Army of Ansar al-Sunnah. For instance, just yesterday I reported that the Army of Ansar al-Sunnah praised John Kerry for his criticisms of the Bush administration. In the same communique, the group calls Osama bin Laden 'our sheik'--a reference of devotion and loyalty indicating an al Qaeda connection. Further, the group has solidified it's ties to Musab al-Zarqawi's Tawhid and Jihad terrorist organization which has recently pledged loyalty to al Qaeda. During the taped beheading of Turkish truck driver Ramadan Elbu on October 15th by the Army of Ansar al-Islam, one of the murderers identified himself as a follower of Zarqawi [information, video, and images here]. On October 11th, another individual claimed to be a member of Zarqawi's Tawhid and Jihad group on a beheading video released by the group--the victims were a Turkish truck driver and his Iraqi translator [information, video, and images here].
The AP story Dr. Shackleford refers to comes to us from Australia's National Nine News.

Hopefully, the monsters will soon meet their own eternal (and suitably painful) punishment.
