Omar confirms a story I'd have rather learned was false:
I strongly believe that terrorists are cowards but the cowardice you?re going to see in this story is just exceptional.
The suicide attack that was performed on an election center in one of Baghdad's districts (Baghdad Al-Jadeedah) last Sunday was performed using a kidnapped "Down Syndrome" patient.
Eye witnesses said (and I'm quoting one of my colleagues; a dentist who lives there) "the poor victim was so scared when ordered to walk to the searching point and began to walk back to the terrorists. In response the criminals pressed the button and blew up the poor victim almost half way between their position and the voting center's entrance".
The only response I could give would be unprintable. Sadly, the "Freedom Fighter" talk will go on in some quarters.
This makes the second remote-control "suicide" bomber story. (The first was the survivor/burn victim of the propane truck) How many other "suicide" attacks have actually been blown up at a safe distance from the button pusher?
As sickening as this story is, there's a larger change that needs to be noticed.Posted by Dave at February 3, 2005 01:50 PM
There have been stories all along about the terrorists holding a family hostage and forcing one member to drive car bombs or loading a family into a car and at gunpoint try and run a check-point. Now this.
Just turn it around and look at it from another angle. The fact that we can still be disgusted by these "tactics" is one more proof about the concern for the welfare of the Iraqis expressed by our people. Unfortunatly, the MSM will ignore this and continue the same line. American bad, terror good.Posted by Don Black at February 3, 2005 02:30 PM
Beyond comprehension. My only hope is that these desparate and despicable actions are the last gasp of a dying hydra. My prayers for the soul of this most unfortunate victim.Posted by SueRae at February 3, 2005 04:31 PM
Makes you wonder how many of these suicide carbombers thought they were merely doing the valet-parking thing.
It would really suck to be a terrorist once the Iraqis start rolling up the bastards.
Just imagine Iraqi cops when they discover the latest captive is the one who sent the Downs kid.
Hell, just imagine me.
Even the late Mr. Rogers might go medieval on his ass.
As they say, words fail.
Another sad and sickening episode, compounded in its villainy by the hideaous silence of the Media.Posted by bondarev at February 3, 2005 07:41 PM

I'd like to give 'em a C4 enema.Posted by BignJames at February 6, 2005 11:00 AM Hide Comments | Show/Add Comments in Popup Window(7) | (Note: You must refresh main page to view newly posted comments here)
