    From AP

    CAIRO, Egypt - A video posted Tuesday on an Islamic militant Web site appeared to show a group affiliated with al-Qaida beheading an American in Iraq (news - web sites), saying the death was revenge for the prisoner-abuse scandal.

    The video showed five men wearing headscarves and black ski masks, standing over a bound man in an orange jumpsuit who identified himself as an American from Philadelphia.

    After reading a statement, the men were seen pulling the man to his side and cutting off his head with a large knife. They then held the head out before the camera.

    I don't think anyone said that al-qaeda, or any group affiliated with them, was nice, did they? Like thes murderous bastards needed a reason anyway.

    Some of our people make a couple Iraqi's get naked, and the worlds in an uproar.

    Now watch, this incident will either go unnoticed, or little or nothing will be said about it.

    The more of this I see and hear, the more I tend to become an isolationist.

    This is fucking ridiculous. These are th kinds of animals that are in those jails. So i don't have a bleeding heart for them and their shame culture. I still think our soldiers actions were wrong because it hurts the militaries image, but more and more it seems these bastards deserved worse.

    Not all of those people in the prison are terrorists or murderers. Didn't you just get done telling me that we should reserve judgement before making claims without seeing the pictures? I would think the same would apply with accused criminals.
