Terrorists Accuse al Qaeda in Iraq of Stealing Video

A terrorist organization in Iraq, the Jaish al-Mujahideen, has criticized an al Qaeda front group, The Islamic State of Iraq, for stealing their video. No joke.

The recent al Furqan video shows what is claimed to be an al Qaeda IED attack on a police vehicle in Fallujah. But the video appears to be the same as an earlier attack claimed by Jaish al-Mujahideen.

You mean terrorists are stealing other terrorists videos? How could they stoop to such levels.

The complaint can be found here.

Most likely explanation? IED freelancers are videotaping their attacks and then selling them to the top bidder who then throw a watermark on it and then distribute via the internet.
