There is word of Imad Jabouri, a traffic cop being beheaded right outside the green zone. Rusty
dug up this information in a long detailed story in the Contra Costa Times
on mortar attacks on the green zone. Towards the end of the article is some disturbing news.
Police officials disclosed Thursday that Imad Jabouri, a lieutenant colonel in the Iraqi traffic police, was grabbed a day earlier from in front of his home in the Sabaa Bour neighborhood in northern Baghdad by several armed men as he left for work.
The men beheaded Jabouri, who directed traffic at a busy intersection in front of the Green Zone, and fled with his police badge and pistol, according to a police official who declined to be named for security reasons.
Chad at In The Bullpen also has some comments and notes -- as does Rusty -- that the attacks are shifting away from American targets and seem to be directed right at Iraqi's as of late.
