    Withdraw or we'll shoot the doll!

    This is a true story (unless Fox is lying again?) which aired here:

    [edit]You can read the same story with a bit more info here:

    Questionable Picture Posted

    Now some fresh pickings from the Political Grapevine:

    Questionable Picture Posted

    An Islamist Web site has posted a photo of what it claims is an American soldier held hostage, with a gun pointed at his head, with a threat that he’ll be killed in 72 hours unless Iraqi prisoners are leaving. The Web site says, "Our Mujahedeen heroes of Iraq’s Jihadi Battalion (search) were able to capture American military man, John Adam, after killing a number of his comrades and capturing the rest."

    But the thing is, the U.S. military says no American soldier have been reported missing. And an American toy maker, Dragon Model USA (search), notes the soldier bares a striking resemblance to it Special Ops action figure named Cody. Pentagon officials say terrorists are "getting really desperate."


    A photo of the hostage may be seen here:

    The story apparently came from the Associated Press so there's a little more credibility. The picture that I saw today sheds a little more truth to it. Besides, I thought that the "real" hostage takers shot live video rather than stills?


    You can see a larger picture of the doll here. I wonder if this was something that would jack up the value of the dolls to collectors?

    /me pictures the script for such a 'live videotaping' of this:

    Cast: Hostage - Mr. Bill
    The Terrorists - themselves

    Hostage: "Oh nooooo! It's Mister Terrorist! He's mean!"

    Terrorist: "gonnasellmayamahabuyahonda!" (translation: We shall now decapitate you for your Government's crimes against our religion!)

    Hostage: "Oooooooh nooooooooooo!"

    (Normal sized hand enters the scene and grasps the hostage firmly about the body.)
    (Second hand enters and rips the head off the doll*cough*hostage)

    Terrorist - in broken english: The hand of Allah has acted on our behalf! Release our prisoners!

    OMFG ha ha ha.
    Those terrorists aren't that bright. Ha ha
    Can you imagine THAT conversation.

    Terrorist 1: "ok, i got an idea. We'll take a doll, put a doll sized gun to his head, and tell the americans we have captured a soldier"

    Terrorist 2: "but don't you think they'll know?"

    Terrorist 1: "No, no... it'll be ok. They'll _never_ figure it out"

    ha ha ha

    Maybe they though all Americans were like Bush. Then it would have worked.
