Religion of pieces: Al Qaeda terrorists behead another American in Iraq.
group linked to al Qaeda ally Abu Musab al-Zarqawi has beheaded an American hostage in Iraq (news - web sites) and posted a video of the killing on a Web Site Saturday.
"My name is Benjamin Ford. I am from San Francisco, California," said the young man dressed in a plain beige T-shirt as he sat on a chair. "We need to leave this country right now. If we don't, everyone is gonna be killed in this way," he said.
The video then showed him being beheaded.
*UPDATE* It now appears that this was just a sick hoax by a loser who was running for city council in San Francisco -- no surprise there. The loser believes his little hoax to be "social commentary." What a brain-dead moron.
