A Turkish contractor and Iraqi translator have been beheaded for "working with Americans".
A militant Iraqi group said it had beheaded a Turkish contractor and his Iraqi translator as punishment for working with U.S. forces in Iraq, television channel Al Jazeera television said on Monday.
The station aired scenes from a video by the Army of Ansar al-Sunna group showing the Turk standing between two masked militants. Al Jazeera said the group killed the two men after they "confessed" to have cooperated with U.S. forces.
The television said they would not air the beheading video, which it said it had obtained from a Web site, because it was too gruesome.
Army of Ansar al-Sunna is the same group that killed 12 Nepali Hostages back in August and recently beheaded Barea Nafea Dawoud Ibrahim, an Iraqi contractor, of which there is a video here.
They have also executed a number of people claiming they were CIA operatives. These bastards are right up there at the top of the hit list with Zarqawi (speaking of which, if you haven't, make your vote in the poll on the left navigation bar for what we should do with Zarqawi if we ever catch him alive).

Hey Digger! I am a "Drawn And Quartered Man" myself, but I would prefer a Court of Law, and then the Drawing. Thanks for the attribution on the Command Post. I wrote-up the Larry King Interview with Mary Kay LeTourneau last night. She is in need of being Drawn and Quartered too.

An atrocity is an atrocity no matter how it's put. Even the invasion of a sovereign state under false pretenses as commited by Bush and Co.
If I were the father of a young girl tortured and raped and then brutally murdered by those representing Bush and his criminal terror on innocent citizens, I would seriously contemplate wanting to chop off afew heads myself.
