Nigerian Islamists Behead "Informant"
I haven't seen this video, but do I really need to see it to understand the kind of animals we're dealing with here?
A man accused of being an informant has been beheaded by Islamist group Boko Haram. The incident was recorded in a video obtained Tuesday in which the victim accused of being an informant appears to be beheaded on camera.And, oddly enough, it seems like YouTube is the protagonist of the story:
The clip has been distributed to Nigerian journalists in the country's north in recent days through intermediaries....On second thought, you really do need to see the video to understand the brutality of these people. Words alone cannot describe the visceral reaction any moral being has when witnessing someone being murdered. I can't explain why that it is, but it's true.
Sources familiar with Boko Haram say it was handed out in this manner because Nigerian authorities have been blocking the group's videos from being uploaded to YouTube.
