In an 11 minute and 5 second video just released, British hostage Ken Bigley begs for his life.Below you will find links to the video and images of Ken Bigley's pleas.
The video, released by Zarqawi's Tawhid wa Jihad group on the Ansar message board, shows a visibly nervous Bigley, clad in an orange jumpsuit, making an appeal to the British and American governments.
Images from the video:
On the video Bigley is heard begging Tony Blair to meet the terrorists demands. He says that the "terrorists are not asking for much. All they want is their wives, their daughters, their mothers." He also begs the citizens fo the UK to contact the government. Unfortunately for Mr. Bigley, the terrorists believe, falsely, the the Coalition is holding many female prisoners. They are not. Only two females are being held, both with ties to the Saddam Hussein regime. Do you see why I believe al Jazeera ought to be bombed? Because they spread the kind of propaganda that the terrorists believe. They actually believe that the US is there to rape their women, kill their children, and imprison their mothers. I feel truly sad for Mr. Bigley. I would probably beg for my life too had I been in his place. God bless your soul and speed it to heaven.
The last images in the video are pure propaganda. The first reads "Does a British civilian worth anything to Blair?"
The second "Will he try to save this hostage or will he not care?"
The last "Do leaders really care abou their people?"
The terrorists are attempting to blame Blair for this man's imminent death.
