An Islamic website has posted that the Ansar al-Sunna group has beheaded Cpl Wassef Ali Hassoun, a US Marine who is of Lebanese descent. They claim they will release a video of the beheading.

The US is investigating the claim. It is believed Hassoun was taken hostage approximately 2 weeks ago. His captors had threatened to kill him via a TV broadcast shown on the Arabic satellite TV channel al-Jazeera.

The Ansar al-Sunna group is believed to have links with al-Qaeda. If his death is confirmed it will be third hostage killing in Iraq.

What's the point of these killings? It's not like the citizens of America have any say in this war anyway. These terrorists are idiots..


Those who say do not know.

To run moral into the ground. To make political statements. If enough Dads and sons die this way america will demand thier boys come home. Anyone wanting to be re-elected will comply. This also runs troop moral into the ground. If your enemy is depressed and thinking of home he will not be as aware.
