More Beheadings in Iraq

And the beheadings keep on comin'. The 'Army' of Ansar al-Sunna has released video footage of the beheadings of a Turkish civilian contractor and his Iraqi translator. They were made to confess to aiding the coalition before being slaughtered.

Al Jazeera would not air the video as they thought it was too gruesome but, as is always the case nowadays, it has found it's way onto the Internet. If you really must see it, Chad at In The Bullpen has it. However, I implore you to think hard before watching it. These were real people; people with families; people like you and me. They were murdered in the most horrific way imaginable. Imagine for a moment the terror they felt as they were captured. Blindfolded and bundled into a car. Held for days in a cellar without food or water, until the final moments as evil men armed with hate and madness set upon them with knives. If you can still watch the video then God help you.
