This might be interesting to you guys,

www.al-bab.com...

specificlly the part which states -
Abu al-Hassan was executed on 17 October 1999.

If this is the same person, sound like Zaqawi style just die and come back to life all of a sudden. If this is true we can expect a very dodgy video.

I wouldn't be suprised if all the be.ings were just propaganda op's, by the look of things on this board, they seem to be working.

We will look back on this in 50 years time when all the secrets are common knowledge being shown on somesort of World At War documentary and wonder how we could all be so blinded by rage and statistics.

By that standard, what we do to our war prisoners is our own business...


i think what cargo meant was that if prisoners butt raped each other or if gangs control what channels to watch frm the available then its up to you to deal with it your own way.

however, say if the wardens are the ones butt raping prisoners, humiliating them and taking videos. it becomes a much bigger issue and someone will have to pay.

That Zarqauwi fella is one creepy lookin individual. But here's what we should do when we find em. Surround the safe house or whatever and pipe in constant readings of the Christian Holy Bible and Hallelujah choruses by like the Mormon Tabernacle Boys' Choir. Make em stay there and listen to it down in and day out with no sleep. Hee hee, they'll be commiting suicide, we won't have ta kill em


And ya know...feeding the hotdogs and spam might work too.

there is hope that Hassoun is still alive:





Lebanese Foreign Minister Jean Obeid said he had no confirmation, apparently contradicting a source in his ministry who had earlier said Hassoun was dead.

"All we have so far is the statement from the group involved. If it is confirmed, then it's against any religion," he told Arabic television station Al Jazeera.

The marine's brother said his family was in the dark.

"Until now, there is no confirmation," Sami Ali Hassoun told Reuters by telephone from the northern Lebanese city of Tripoli. "We are trying to find out the truth."

In Baghdad, a U.S. military spokesman said: "We don't have anything and the Marines don't have anything."




Reuters: No Confirmation U.S. Marine Hostage Killed in Iraq Sun Jul 4, 2004 07:05 AM ET


and:




BAGHDAD, Iraq July 4, 2004 — An Islamic extremist group denied in a statement posted on its Web site Sunday that it had killed a U.S. Marine taken hostage last month.

The Ansar al-Sunna Army issued the statement in response to reports by the Lebanese Foreign Ministry that the group killed Cpl. Wassef Ali Hassoun, an American of Lebanese descent

[...]

The original claim of having kidnapped the Marine was issued in the name of "Islamic Response," the security wing of the "National Islamic Resistance - 1920 Revolution Brigades," rather than the Ansar al-Sunna Army

The UK Daily Telegraph is reporting that the terrorists holding captive US marine Wassef Ali Hassoun are denying reports of his execution.


Iraqi group denies killing abducted US marine
(Filed: 04/07/2004)


Iraqi militant group Ansar al-Sunna has denied claims published on two Islamic websites that it has be.ed captive US marine Wassef Ali Hassoun.


Wassef Ali Hassoun: paraded on television by his captors

In a statment published on its own web site the group branded as false the statement made in its name claiming the 24-year-old marine corporal, of Lebanese origin, had been be.ed.

It read: "This statement that claimed to be from us has no basis in truth ... and we have an official web site through which we publish statements".

Earlier today, the US military also issued a statement saying that was no credible evidence that Hassoun had been killed and they believed he was still alive despite confirmation of the killing by the Lebanese foreign ministry.

Hassoun went missing June 21 near the flashpoint town of Fallujah, west of Baghdad.
