The schadenfreude from Rathergate continues:
Iraqi militants claimed in a Web statement Tuesday to have taken an American soldier hostage and threatened to behead him in 72 hours unless the Americans release Iraqi prisoners.
The posting, on a Web site that frequently carried militants’ statements, included a photo of what appeared to be an American soldier in desert fatigues seated with his hands tied behind his back.
Well, at least now we know the truth. The moonbats can no longer deny the reality of an Iraq-C.O.B.R.A. connection. And if they’re targeting our action figures for hostages, we can always send in Optimus Prime to drop a train on ’em.
Dan Rather has stated that although the photo is clearly a fake, he stands behind the story of the kidnapping.
Intelligence officials say they know who betrayed the soldier to the insurgents.
