I still can't believe they killed him.
I don't know *why* I can't believe it... was I really expecting this all to be nice?
I guess I just figured that, as idiotic as a kidnapping was... a murder would just be *too* stupid for these guys. And they got it all on tape... hehe.. how american of them.

"The tape got into American hands when two men approached an FBI agent they believed to be a journalist."

Um... wasn't Pearl kidnapped because they thought he was an agent posing as a journalist? Is revealing their suspicions to have good grounding the most constructive thing we could come up with right now?

Well, I think we have a tendency to think these are isolated incidents. I think we also have a tendency to think that the kidnapped person isn't supposed to die.
We've too much of a hollywood idea about kidnappings and war and so forth.

But yes, I totally agree with you. There were several statements throughout the article that just made me cringe.

oh christ... that *is* going to happen, isn't it?
And Stile project after he rips it off ... and from there to every E/N site on the web...

Maybe they're right, eh?

I've seen stuff like that before, anyway. Old news.
I remember one video I downloaded where a guy in a ski mask has another man with his hands tied behind his back. The ski-mask dude has the other guy kneel and put his head on an upright section of a log.
Then, with one swift chop, the guy's head pops off.
I also think this was the same video where you see a close-up of a soldier's boot stepping on a guy's face before he sinks his knife into the guy's neck.
Hmmm....... now I'm wondering where I put all of these.

Weeee! Death!
Ugh.
I'm still traumatized by the Dwyer video. Thinking about the look in his eyes after he slumped to the ground.. ugh.

Those were on the Stile project.
The guy with the throat being very messily cut out was supposedly a russian soldier and the other two were kosovars... or something....
I don't really remember.
One of those was russian. THat's all that sunk in, apparently.
I really vividly remember the throat one. Mainly because he just... did it so non chalantly. stabbed him in the neck and then ripped the knife out through the front.

bleh.

For some reason, the beheddings never bothered me.
