Terrorist Class for Suicide Bombers Goes Terribly Right

Do not read this story while consuming beverages of any kind, the spewage may do irreparable damage to your computer:

[A] commander at a secluded terrorist training camp north of Baghdad unwittingly used a belt packed with explosives while conducting a demonstration early Monday for a group of militants, killing himself and 21 other members of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, army and police officials said....

In addition to the 22 militants who were killed, 15 others were wounded in the explosion on Monday at the militant compound, in a rural area of northeastern Salahuddin Province, according to police and army officials. Stores of other explosives, including explosives packed in at least 10 vehicles, ready for operations, were found at the camp, as well as heavy weapons, the officials said.

Eight militants were arrested when they tried to escape, the officials said. The militant commander who was conducting the training was not identified by name, but an Iraqi Army officer described him as a prolific recruiter who was “able to kill the bad guys for once.”

Honestly, is any further commentary necessary?

This is the time at the Jawa when we dance!

UPDATE: Apparently Vinnie covered this yesterday. Oh well, this is a double post I don't really mind leaving up.
