American Hostage Eugene Armstrong has been beheaded in a new video released by the Army of Ansar al Sunna, a group with links to al Qaeda and head by Abu Musab al Zarqawi. I have the video. Still images from the video are in the extended entry.

Criticial UPDATE 9/21: The second American hostage, Jack Hensley, has been executed. Updates to this will be posted here.


I am sick. I am in tears. I am enraged. God, strike down these sick bastards!!! Lord, where is justice?? In the video Eugene Armstrong can be heard screaming in agony. What kind of monters do this?? Fox:

One of the American hostages kidnapped last week in Iraq has been beheaded by the Al Qaeda-linked group of Jordanian terror mastermind Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, according to a Web site

The statement, posted Monday by a Web site contributor who has put up past statements signed in the name of Tawhid and Jihad, couldn't be confirmed.

It said that al-Zarqawi, "God protect him, has beheaded the first American. The group will next behead the others." The site said a video of the killing would be posted later.

Expect Updates.

UPDATE: NEIN is hosting the video. It can be downloaded here, but this is one of the most awful things I have ever seen. While Zarqawis goons read a statement you can see Eugene Armstrong muttering something over and over. A prayer perhaps? The fact that the victim is an American makes me sick and angry. I was angered by all the other videos, but I have not felt like this since Paul Johnson.

Images from the video. Graphic images are in the extended entry.

This next photo is from Zarqawi's website and is from last week's attack on a US Bradley fighting vehicle. As a refresher, a number of "innocent civillians" along with a Palestinian journalist who "just happened" to be at the scene were killed when the US opened fire on the car swarm.

UPDATE: Eugene Armstrong's body found near mosque.

UPDATE: Blogs of War has this translation from the video:"Oh, you Christian dog Bush, stop your arrogance … the mujahideen will give America a taste of the degradation you have inflicted on the Iraqi people,” Right, this has nothing to do with religion.

A lot of blog coverage on this: Diggers Realm, Right on Red, Jane, M.H. King, Michelle, Slant Point, Kevin Aylward, John Little, Interested Participant, Chad Evans, Sparse Matrix, James Joyner

Continue to images at your own risk!!!!

WARNING: VERY GRAPHIC. HORRIBLE PICS. THESE WILL MAKE YOU SICK AND MAD
