In a shocking twist to the all too frequent kidnapping and threats by terrorists, now the story of families of the Jordanian hostages threatening to behead the director and kill all employees of the company if they do not cease operations in Iraq.
AMMAN, Jordan (July 27, 5:49 am PDT) - Relatives of two Jordanian drivers abducted in Iraq threatened Tuesday to behead the director of the company the hostages work for and to kill all the firm's employees if the director fails to immediately comply with the kidnappers' demands to cease operations in Iraq.

Fayez Saad al-Udwan and Ahmed Salama Hassan - who work as drivers for the private Jordanian company Daoud and Partners - were kidnapped Monday by a group calling itself the Mujahedeen Corps in Iraq. The group warned the captives would be killed within 72 hours unless their employer withdrew from Iraq and stopped cooperating with U.S forces.

Just when you thought you have seen it all, how will the company handle this new revelation?

Whoa!!!!! I guess threats by terrorists and beheadings are the cup of tea of the day or in my case the coffee of the day.

This hilarious in a kind of sad way.

It looks like the Jordanians are bailing out.

BAGHDAD, Iraq - A Jordanian company working for the U.S. military decided Tuesday to withdraw from Iraq (news - web sites), complying with demands of kidnappers threatening to kill two employees, even as a senior Egyptian diplomat returned to work a day after being released by militants.

Wow that was quick, I guess the company director valued his head. It will be interesting to see if the King of Jordan weighs in on this action.
