UPDATE 5/10: Army of Ansar al-Sunna website releases images of Japanese hostage Akihiko Saito. Images, story, and link to website.

Graphic images and link to video below. Conflicting reports indicate that the man murdered by the Army of Ansar al-Sunnah in a new beheading video was named either Yassar Musil or Seif Adnan Kanaan. The following AP story, as well as the Reuters story in the extended entry, also miss some other crucial facts about the Army of Ansar al-Sunnah. For instance, just yesterday I reported that the Army of Ansar al-Sunnah praised John Kerry for his criticisms of the Bush administration. In the same communique, the group calls Osama bin Laden 'our sheik'--a reference of devotion and loyalty indicating an al Qaeda connection. Further, the group has solidified it's ties to Musab al-Zarqawi's Tawhid and Jihad terrorist organization which has recently pledged loyalty to al Qaeda. During the taped beheading of Turkish truck driver Ramadan Elbu on October 15th by the Army of Ansar al-Islam, one of the murderers identified himself as a follower of Zarqawi [information, video, and images here]. On October 11th, another individual claimed to be a member of Zarqawi's Tawhid and Jihad group on a beheading video released by the group--the victims were a Turkish truck driver and his Iraqi translator [information, video, and images here].

The Army of Ansar al Sunnah murdered an Iraqi named Barie Nafi'a Daoud Ibrahim on Oct. 2nd [images, link to video, and information here]. The same group murdered three Iraqis on September 16th (information, links to video, and images here). On August 31st, these terrorists executed 12 hostages from Nepal, one of them by beheading (information, links to video, and images here). On August 11th the group beheaded a man they claimed was a CIA agent (information and images here) and on August 25th the group beheaded a second alleged CIA agent (information and images here). May God speed the victims' souls to heaven, and may His wrath reign down upon the spineless terrorists in the form of a MOAB or other appropriately large ordinance.

AP:

Iraqi militants beheaded a man, presumably Iraqi, who said he worked for the US military in the northern city of Mosul for the past 10 months, a videotape posted on Islamic web sites showed.

The killing was claimed by the Ansar al-Sunnah Army, a group that has taken responsibility for the beheading of a Turkish driver and Arab Shi'ite Muslim in two tapes that surfaced earlier this month and 12 Nepalese construction workers, whose killing was shown in a video posted on August 31.

In the latest tape, a man wearing what appeared to be a US-military issue brown T-shirt and speaking in Arabic described himself as Seif Adnan Kanaan, adding that he worked as a vehicle mechanic and drinks deliverer for US forces based at Mosul airport.

The tape showed him with his hands tied behind his back seated in front of three armed, masked militants and a black banner with white Arabic script bearing the militant group's name.

The tape did not specify the man's nationality, but he appeared to be Iraqi. It was also not clear when he was captured or killed.

One militant described Kanaan as a "crusader spy recruited by the American troops to follow and carry information about the mujahedeen in Mosul." The militant also accused the captive of cursing Islam's Prophet Muhammad.

"I am telling anybody who wants to work with Americans to not work with them," Kanaan said shortly before being killed. "I found out that the mujahideen have very accurate information (and) strong intelligence about everything. They are stronger than I thought."

The tape then shows a militant slitting the victim's throat before severing his head and placing it on his back.

In their campaign to force US-led forces out of Iraq, insurgents have targeted people, including Arabs, they regard as supporting the American military.

The video can be downloaded at the Terrorist Media site, but free registration is required. The site is an essential resource, and if you can find it in you to donate to them I'm sure they would appreciate it.

Reuters:

An Iraqi militant group says it has beheaded an Iraqi man it accused of collaborating with U.S. forces and posted pictures of the killing on the Internet.

The Army of Ansar al-Sunna said in a statement posted on its Web site on Saturday it had captured the man in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul where he was working at a U.S. base.

The site showed a photograph of the man with his throat slit but an attached video tape could not be immediately accessed.

"The mujahideen in the city of Mosul succeeded in capturing a weak-willed individual living off the blood of the mujahideen who was recruited as a crusader spy by the American forces," said the statement dated Saturday.

WARNING: LAST CHANCE!!! WHAT YOU ARE ABOUT TO SEE IS DISGUSTING. MUST BE 18 TO VIEW.

Why do I show these images? These images are designed by the terrorists to make you afraid. Instead, let them enrage you and stiffen your resolve to fight.
