Iraqi Security Guard Beheaded

Rusty Shackleford is reporting on yet another beheading by al Zarqawi’s al Qaeda in Iraq. From the Associated Press:

A statement shown on the video identified the Iraqi National Guard member as Jassim Mohammed Hussein Mahdi, who appeared to be in his early 20s, and the black banner of al-Qaida in Iraq, which is headed by wanted Jordanian militant Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.

The video, posted on a militant Web site that carries most al-Qaida in Iraq statements, could not be immediately authenticated. It showed an unidentified interrogator talking to Mahdi said he had received orders from his superiors “to kill the mujahedeen anywhere and without hesitation.”
