Bodies of Missing GI's Found; Killed In A "Barbaric" Way

Yeah, those guys at Haditha had no reason to fear for their lives:

The bodies of two U.S. soldiers who were reported missing have been recovered, and an Iraqi official said Tuesday the men were "killed in a barbaric way."

At a press conference in Baghdad, U.S. military spokesman Maj. Gen. William Caldwell confirmed that the remains, found late Monday by U.S. troops, were believed to be those of Pfc. Kristian Menchaca, 23, of Houston, and Pfc. Thomas L. Tucker, 25, of Madras, Ore.

...

An Iraqi insurgent group that earlier claimed responsibility for kidnapping the soldiers posted a Web statement Tuesday that said the soldiers had been killed by the new leader of Al Qaeda in Iraq.

"With God Almighty's blessing, Abu Hamza al-Muhajer carried out the verdict of the Islamic court" for the soldier's slaying, said a statement in the name of the Mujahedeen Shura Council. Later the message used the word "slaughtered," which in previous cases has been used to describe beheadings.

The left had all sorts of "interesting theories" about Zarqawi being beaten to death on a stretcher. I think, for some reason, they'll have less to say about an admitted execution.

Fifteen Terrorists Killed NE of Baghdad: While looking for an unnamed Al Qaeda figure.

It's a start.
