The Evil We Face – Video of Desecration of U.S. Soldiers

The Jawa Report has obtained video of the desecration of the bodies of U.S. soldiers Kristian Menchaca and Thomas Tucker in Iraq. I thought about writing that the evil we face is something we can’t fully comprehend, but after re-reading the material below I decided that most people can comprehend it when faced with it. We live in a society where we are shielded even from so many of the images of 9/11. Sometimes those images should be faced. I am not going to watch the video. I believe the threat is real and I don’t want those images burned into my mind for all eternity. Maybe those who don’t take seriously the threat posed by Islamic jihadists should watch it, though. This is pure bloodthirsty evil and it is not something that can be reasoned with or appeased.

I was unable after several attempts to access The Jawa Report, but am quoting below from an email received from Rusty Shackleford:

The message introducing the video states that this video is presented as “revenge for our sister who was dishonored by a soldier of the same brigade,” referencing the rape and murder of an Iraqi girl and her family by a group of American soldiers in al-Mahmoudiya.

WARNING: Graphic description and images below.

The two victims, Kristian Menchaca and Thomas Tucker, were members of the 101st Airborne division abducted by al Qaeda in Iraq. A third soldier died in the attack.

Their bodies were later recovered not far from where they had been kidnapped. The US military now says that their corpses were found tied together with a bomb between them. Three roadside bombs were planted around the bodies. The bodies had been decapitated.

The video bears the logo of al Qaeda in Iraq. Contrary to reports by al Qaeda, the video appears to show that the two soldiers were already dead before at least one of them was beheaded.

After a brief introdcuction with an image and the voice of Osama bin Laden, the video shows the two dead soldiers lying on a bridge. Both are already dead.

One of the men has already been beheaded, the other man is dead. An al Qaeda member holds the severed head of one of the dead soldiers.

One of the two soldiers appear to have been shot, the other has multiply wounds but appears to have also been hit by an explosive.

The video also blurs out one of the dead men’s genitels, apparently al Qaeda believes showing that would be over-the-top.

Later, an image of the now dead leader of al Qaeda in Iraq, Abu Musab al Zarqawi, is superimposed over the film. Zarqawi had personally murdered several people by beheading and then released those films on the internet.

The entire video has a voice over of what sounds like Abu Musab al Zaraqawi–but it could be the new al Qaeda leader in Iraq calling Muslims to jihad. A nasheed, or Islamic jihad song, can also be heard in the
