Sarkawi brüstet sich mit Helikopterabschuss und Erschießung
--- Al-Sarkawi rüstet im Infowar im Irak mal wieder auf und brüstet sich mit dem Abschuss eines Helikopters mit US-Söldnern und der kaltblütigen Erschießung eines Überlebenden: THE group led by Jordanian-born militant Abu Musab al-Zarqawi has reportedly claimed responsibility for shooting down a helicopter, killing all on board. The 11 victims - including one who suffered a broken leg and was allegedly shot after the crash - died on Thursday after the Bulgarian Mi-8 helicopter was brought down with a missile. A video posted on Islamic websites and shown in part on al-Jazeera television, carrying the logo of the Islamic Army in Iraq, reportedly shows the aftermath of the attack. In the video, a voice can be heard saying in Arabic, as the survivor is shot: "We are applying God's law." The group said it killed the survivor "in revenge for the Muslims who have been killed in cold blood in the mosques of tireless Fallujah before the eyes of the world and on television screens, without anyone condemning them". It was apparently referring to the shooting by an American soldier of a wounded Iraqi in a Fallujah mosque on November 13 during a US offensive in the city. ... Six of the helicopter occupants were American, three were Bulgarian and two were identified by Bulgaria as Filipinos and by the Canadian company that owned the helicopter as Fijian. ... The deaths brought to 227 the number of foreign contractors who have died in Iraq, according to Coalition Casualties, an independent website tracking deaths in the war-torn country. Mehr dazu bei NEIN: The video is profoundly disturbing. It shows the jihadis walking through a field of burning wreckage. It shows dead Americans lying dead in the wreckage. Then the jihadis move from the open field into an area that appears to be high grasses. They find a survivor of the crash lying in the grass, alive. He is told "Stand up" in English. The man asks the jihadis to give him a hand. After a few moments, the man is shown standing, and is being encouraged to walk. He hears them speaking behind him, and turns around. The jihadis begin shooting him. Wer sich das nicht leicht verdauliche Video unbedingt anschaun will, findet es wie immer auf Gräuelseiten wie Ogrish.
Update: Nach einem recht bunten Bericht der Berliner Morgenpost/Welt auf Basis eines ABC-Reports jagen die US-Truppen weiter das Phantom Sarkawi und hätten es jüngst auch beinahe erwischt. Bei der Verfolgungsjagd soll den Amerikanern ein Computer des Terroristenführers in die Hände gefallen sein.
