    If you are looking for the legacy of Abu Musab al Zarqawi, do not look in the concrete rubble of so-called safe house in Baqubah that became his final resting place. Instead, look less than 10 miles to the west, on the side of the road in the desert town of Hadid, for a pile of cardboard banana boxes. Inside those boxes were nine human heads. Some of the heads still had their blindfolds on. Iraqi police are still attempting to identify the murdered men. Days earlier, in Baquba, Iraqi police found another eight severed heads. One of those heads...

    Kidnappers beheaded British hostage Kenneth Bigley after twice releasing videos in which he wept and pleaded with Prime Minister Tony Blair for his life. A U.S. official said Friday there was credible information that Bigley had tried to escape with the aid of one of his captors. The attempt failed and Bigley was killed a short time later as was shown on a video of his beheading, the Washington official said on condition of anonymity. There was no word on the fate of his captor. A Western official in Baghdad refused to talk about the escape attempt report. The 62-year-old...

    I just viewed the murder of Eugene Armstrong by ISLAMIC TERRORISTS. I am beyond crying. I am furious. I am furious with the spineless, evil, United Nations. I am furious with the coward, John Kerry. Kerry could care less for these men. Screw Kerry. He is a danger. I am sick of his nutty wife. I am sick and tired of the cowards that populate the Democratic party. Sorry. Venting. I can't wait for November. My prayers go out to Eugene Armstrongs family and all that knew him. I don't pray that much. Maybe I had better start.

    BAGHDAD, Iraq - Gunmen abducted two Americans and a Briton in a brazen attack Thursday on a house in an upscale Baghdad neighborhood where many embassies and foreign companies are based, the Interior Ministry and witnesses said. It was the latest in a wave of kidnappings of foreigners in Iraq. The three, employees of Gulf Services Company, a Middle East-based construction firm, were seized from a two-story house surrounded by a wall in the al-Mansour neighborhood, said Col. Adnan Abdel-Rahman, a ministry official. American and British diplomats in Baghdad could not immediately confirm that account, though the U.S. Embassy said...
