Video shows execution of N.D. man [hostage, former Marine], Islamic Army of Iraq claims
Star Tribune ^ | 12.19.05 | Chuck Haga

Posted on 12/19/2005 10:36:59 AM PST by wallcrawlr

A video showing the execution of an American hostage was posted on a website today, and the Islamic Army of Iraq claimed the victim was Jamestown, N.D., native Ronald Schulz.

The video did not show Schulz’s face, the Associated Press reported, and it was impossible to identify him conclusively. The man was blindfolded, kneeling, with his hands tied behind his back and facing away from the camera when he was purportedly shot in the back of the head.

As the execution was aired on the website, a separate piece of film on a split screen showed the footage of Schulz that the extremist group released when he was taken hostage earlier this month. The video also showed his identity card.

Schulz’s brother, Ed, reached at his home in Arvilla, N.D, declined to comment on the report.

“I have about 30 things to do right now” he said as he waited to hear from U.S. authorities. “Without confirmation, talking to the media isn’t one of them.”

A frame from a video posted on the internet by a Sunni Arab extremist group close to Al-Qaeda shows what they said was the execution of an American contractor who was held hostage in Iraq. "As we promised, we broadcast a videotape of the killing of the American advisor (at the ministry of housing)," said a statement accompanying the videotape posted by the Islamic Army in Iraq, referring to North Dakota native Ronald Schulz. The videotape purportedly showed a blindfolded and handcuffed man seated on his knees being shot by a machine gun from behind.

What happened to the four "peace" activists? I haven't heard anything recently. Still in custody? released during the elections when attention elsewhere?

But we shouldn't even "treat any of them in degrading manner", not to mention "torture", 'cause it would put our troops in danger of being tortured...

Yes, the day of reckoning *will* come.

You're absolutely correct. This was murder pure and simple. God, how I pray our troops find these ugly islamics and give them slow torture.

Our politicians care more for the terrorists and illegal aliens than they do for U.S. citizens. The war in Iraq would already have been won if the military was allowed to "wage" war. Instead, Iraq is treated more like a "police state".

The politicians will try to secure Iraq's borders but don't give a dam about our borders here.

The whole lot of em disgust me lately.
