Barbarians

In this undated image made from video, released by the Islamic State of Iraq's (ISI) al-Furqan Media and distributed Saturday, March 3, 2007 by IntelCenter, 18 blindfolded members of the Iraqi Security Forces are shot from behind by an unidentified gunman at an undisclosed location. In a statement posted on an Islamic militant Web site on Saturday, the al-Qaida-affilated Islamic State of Iraq claimed it abducted and killed two groups of Iraqi government forces in retaliation for the alleged rape of a Sunni woman by members of the Shiite-dominated police. This image was provided via the IntelCenter, which is a private contractor working for intelligence agencies. (AP Photo/Intel Center, HO) Man, normally horrific images like what is described above don't appear on Yahoo, but they do today. Heck, I don't feel comfortable reposting them here. But, for those so inclined, they generally appear in Yahoo's Most Emailed Photos and as a sidebar to Yahoo's Most Popular Stories.
