Dead Briton dragged through streets after Saudi attack: reports
Sat May 29, 7:41 PM ET
LONDON (AFP) - Britain's newspapers said that the body of a British national feared killed in attacks by alleged Al-Qaeda-linked gunmen in eastern Saudi Arabia was dragged for over a mile (1.6 kilometres) behind a car.
According to the Mail on Sunday and The Observer, a British oil company executive was definitely among the victims of the attack at a compound in the Saudi oil city of Al-Khobar on Saturday.
Security forces found his body a mile away from the residential area where he was killed in front of his work colleagues, the newspaper said.
The assailants, suspected Islamic militants, led attacks against two oil facilities in Al-Khobar, then took an unknown number of civilians hostage at a nearby housing complex.
At least 11 people were reported killed so far in the violence, but numbers were expected to rise as Saudi security forces besieged the assailants, who were holed up in a building with the hostages.
One American was confirmed dead among at least four Westerners reported killed.
Crown Prince Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz said about 10 Saudis and foreigners were killed. He put at "four or five" the number of attackers "who have taken refuge in the compound where they are besieged."
The suspected Islamist extremists later released eight of their captives, who reported that more than 50 people were still being held.
Shortly afterwards gunfire could be heard from the hostage drama scene.
Per some earlier reports today, the Brit may have been alive when they started dragging him.
At least they didn't make him wear ladies' undies on his head.
Second time this month for the dragging torture death. These animals deserve death, all of them.
Those poor terrorists. Hopefully they didn't pull a muscle dragging this british subject. That's what he get's when he helps those fascist Americans by pumping Saudi Oil <//Sarcasm off>
The religion of peace. I just can't figure out why they need guns, knives and bombs if they are so peaceful.
Even if not feasible, one can dream.
Think Alwhore will go on a "How Dare They?!!" rant, over this news?
What was the other one?
Nope, his a$$ feels everyone's pain wondering how he can start his communist ahem I meant to say liberal radio station. Can't wait for Michael Moore's movie "Dude, how to drag and kill a Briton" movie.....
They all seem to have settled on that scummy phrasing: "The assailants, suspected Islamic militants"
The most recent AP article began, "Suspected militants."
What in the hell does that mean? You say of a named individual that he is suspected of a crime, in order to protect him on the outside chance that he is innocent. But you don't say that unknown individuals are "suspected" of committing a known and witnessed atrocity.
These people are not militants. They are terrorists and murderers. And they are not "suspected," you mealy mouthed traitors at AP, Reuters, CNN, AFP, and the rest.
And, let us not forget that Tubby Kennedy sez that we are as bad as Saddam.
When this happened to James Byrd in Texas, the liberals blamed it on Governor George W. Bush.
I almost hate to say this but Saudi Arabia deserves what they get. How many of the 9/11 terrorists were from and supported by Saudi Arabia?
Of course not! Dragging a body for a mile behind a vehicle, cutting the head off of a hostage, burning the bodies of civilians and hanging them off of a bridge is nowhere near as bad as putting panties on terrorists heads or forcing them to do the birthday suit pyramid. At least not in a liberals mind!!
dang guy, you nailed it. this will be Dubya's fault to by morning. so sad.........
15 of the 19 9/11 hijackers were Saudis ...
By clinging to such mindless euphemisms, these journalists are holding onto a piece of their ideology, political correctness, which will reassure to themselves and their fellow travelers that they are still "enlightened" beings.
A sad way to prop up their ego.
The US culture--in Media and in Hollywood--glorifies and excuses the behavior of bullies.
Rich Tycoons, Islamists, Mafiosi, Serial-Killers, Territorial Drug-Bosses,,,---they are all glorified and admired in the American culture.
Unleash the SAS on Saudi!
OK, lessee here...gimme a minute....still thinking...Eureka! I found it!
They all like to be in the street!
Yeah, that's the ticket!!
See, Mr. Bobby777 - there's no connection at all to religion in any of this.
Hey! It's the ONLY religion on Earth that kills in the name of their god!!!
How true that they aren't militants. The modern history of any Arabic army is pitiful. They can only fight as terrorists hiding behind their women and children. They depend on the Western media to hi-light the one, two, four, etc. Westerners that they kill while not reporting terrorist loses. And for some reason, the Western media play right along with them.
yes, I believe it's going to come to that ... how comforting that Dr. Khan sold nuclear secrets from Pakistan to Libya, North Korea and Iran ... and now, Saudi Arabia wants nuclear technology ...
oh yeah, this is not going to have a good ending ... what insanity these clowns bring to everyday life ...
Foxnews reporting the Saudis attacked and freed the American hostages?
Isn't it simply amazing what sorts of things bring a smile to that face? (sigh)
I've had it up to my eyebrows with having islam referred to as a "religion", thereby putting in on par with great creeds like Judaism, Christianity, Hinduism, etc.
The damned thing is nothing more that an Insane Death Cult; always has been, and always will be.
Just because it's huge doesn't confer any nobler status upon it - it's still just a bloody cult, and needs eradication now more than any other time in history.
In my meek, humble opinion, of course.
Stinking murderous sandmaggots.
Save yourself England!
just wait until they get nuclear weapons ... or they (eventually) kill Musharraf and take over Pakistan's nuclear arsenal ... we ain't seen nothin' yet ...
mad mo has created a group of people that will cut heads off to get to 'heaven' ... there are no good solutions ... first thing is we'll have to kick them out of the U.S.A. ... lest our land become a sewer rat hole like these others they dominate in ...
good grief ... the CIA, Mossad or MI6 should have killed Dr. Khan as he was giving away those secrets ... when a rogue scientist sets out to give out technology that can bring the whole world to World War III, we have no choice but to have our intelligence groups take them 'out' ...
Could somebody, explain to me the logic
behind building a 'resort' in the
middle of a death camp.
Those Pagan "religions" have now been replaced with EnvironMentalism which is now hooked up with GovernMentalism in this country!!! The new "Death to America" cult that violates the "separation of church and state!!!"

After condemning Israel, an EU parliamentarian declared Europe should supply Arabs with nuclear weapons. Standing before the EU parliament in Brussels on May 16 2001, French EU parliamentarian Paul Marie Couteax made a stunning statement. After condemning Israel's actions to defend itself against Palestinian terrorism as the "theocratic excesses of this religious state," Couteax declared that Europe should supply the Arab world with nuclear weapons. In his words, "I have no hesitation in saying that we must consider giving the Arab side a large enough force, including a large enough nuclear force, to persuade Israel that it cannot simply do...
In other news, dog bites man.
I'd wager they're saying this, in complete earnestness (and blaming Bush, too), over at DU....
wait until the Arab world uses some of their gas, bio or eventual nuclear weapons on Europe ... oh yes, it is coming ... Europe, or at least part of the population of Europe is deluding itself that the crocodile of Islamic terror is going to ignore them ... (no offense to peace-loving crocodiles) ...
oh wait, I forgot about Spain ... no wait, Europe did ... or at least this clown from France ...
the prophecy about Ishmael's descendents is coming true ... his hand will be aginst everyone and everyone's hand will be against him ... and they're bringing it upon themselves ... wait until they tick off the Chinese ...
Then which way shall I find Revenge's cave?
For these two heads do seem to speak to me,
And threat me I shall never come to bliss
Till all these mischiefs be return'd again
Even in their throats that have committed them.
Come, let me see what task I have to do.
You heavy people, circle me about,
That I may turn me to each one of you,
And swear unto my soul to right your wrongs.
The vow is made.
Shakespeare's TITUS ANDRONICUS was his potboiler, a revenge tragedy that seems ripe for our times.
"At least they didn't make him wear ladies' undies on his head"
Yup, good thing. At least they were not torturous, because our media would never stop showing it.
(LOL pathetic, but true)
Just call the victim James Byrd. The coverage will go wall to wall.
Religion, in general, has been one of history's greatest killers (....asbestos suit donned for the perfunctory "man has free will" nonsense.....).
Or put a glowstick in his butt.
