The jihad against the new government continues. From the New York Post, :
October 14, 2004 — BAGHDAD “” A videotape that was posted yesterday on an Islamic Web site showed militants affiliated with wanted Jordanian terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi beheading two Iraqis purported to be intelligence officers.
In other abductions, two Lebanese were freed after more than three weeks in captivity in Iraq, and a French politician said the government has restored indirect contact with kidnappers holding two French journalists hostage in Iraq since late August.
The 10-minute videotape showed two captives, Fadhel Ibrahim and Firas Imeil, identifying themselves as Iraqi National Intelligence officers and saying they were captured in Baghdad’s Haifa Street on Sept. 28.
The tape showed four masked gunmen standing behind Ibrahim and then Imeil, with one militant describing the blindfolded captives as “criminals.”
There was no way to immediately verify the authenticity of the tape, which was released in the name of the Brigades of Abu Bakr Al-Sidiq, a terror group affiliated to al-Zarqawi’s Tawhid and Jihad organization.
