New Tucker and Menchaca Video: Bodies Desecrated by Terrorists

A new video released by the Mujahidin Shura Council of Iraq shows new footage of the desecration of the bodies of Thomas Tucker and Kristian Menchaca. The Jawa Report has obtained a copy of the video. Graphic Images and link to video below.

A previous video had been released of the mutilation of Tucker and Menchaca's bodies by al Qaeda in Iraq. This one includes new footage and has a high production value. The video shows the bodies being dragged through the streets, beaten, and kicked.

The video is a propaganda piece which tries to link the killings of the two American soldiers in Iraq to the murder of a 14 year old Iraqi girl and her family. The video calls the desecration of Tucker and Menchaca's bodies retaliation for alleged abuses by U.S. soldiers.

Most of those abuses have been thoroughly debunked--such as in Fallujah, cited in the video-- or are cases in which the U.S. has prosecuted the abusers.

The video shows the burning of bodies in Afghanistan by U.S. soldiers. What the video does not say is that the bodies were being burned for sanitary reasons. To stop the spread of disease.

Near the end of the video, the two U.S. soldiers' bodies are burned.

The claim that Tucker and Menchaca were killed and desecrated in retaliation for the rape and murder of Abeer Qassim al-Janabi and her family is also not true. The allegations of the murder were not made until after the two were killed.

It is ironic that the video also shows images of Pfc. Justin Watt, who is the chief witness against at least 5 members of his platoon being prosecuted for crimes revolving around the incident.

The terrorists in Iraq celebrate the desecration of the bodies of soldiers, while we prosecute those involved in the very incident they claim to be retaliating for.

According to SITE:

Reciprocation, or tit-for-tat attacks, is emphasized throughout the video. An al-Jazeera interview with Mohammed Taha al-Janabi, Abeer’s uncle, begins the illustration of American crimes, followed by narration of an inhabitant of al-Fallujah describing American crimes during the second battle in that city. Also, the Mujahideen Shura Council points to the burning of Taliban Mujahideen in Afghanistan as additional justification for their acts against the two American soldiers in al-Yusufiyah. Stories of Muhammad’s companions and Islamic scholars who acted in kind to crimes committed against them are presented as vertically scrolling text atop an image of one of the American soldiers.

A message within the video reads: “The Mujahideen, Allah willing, will stay on the companion’s path, “tit for tat” in being harsh on the apostates and the Crusader infidels and the splitters by dispersing and hurting them, destroying their troops, killing them, and wishing to offer the biggest sacrifices for the God of earth and the skies”.

The two victims, Kristian Menchaca and Thomas Tucker, were members of the 101st Airborne division. Al Qaeda claims to have abducted them, but video evidence suggests that the two were already dead. For instance, one of the al Qaeda terrorists can be seen removing what appears to be a knife or possibly a grenade from one of the victim's belts.

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.

This video shows the true face of the enemies we fight. However you feel about the war in Iraq, this should enrage you. They are ruthless barbarians who boast about killing those they have taken hostage.

We show you these images so that you will understand what it is we are up against. The video and images should enrage you. If you do not have righteouss anger after seeing this, you are beyond hope.

And if you cannot see the difference between a terrorist organization that celebrates the murder and desecration of civilians (see our hostage or our beheading archives for many examples) and the U.S. military who treats as crimes and prosecutes those accused of similar things, then you are a moral idiot.

WARNING: Graphic images & video below. Please do not proceed if you are under 18, a friend or relative of the family of the victims or of any soldiers in Iraq, or do not want to be filled with anger towards our enemies in Iraq.

Last chance. Images & vud below. We're serious, the family or friends of the victims do not need to see this.

Remember the 'falling man' images from 9/11? That victim's family did not need to see those images either. Sadly, the rest of us did. To truly grasp the evil nature of our enemies.

If you have forgotten what it is we are up against, please proceed. If you remember the evil nature of the jihadis we fight, then no need. Continue your support of our troops.
