Body of One Missing US Soldier Found
Update: Two More Found?

In positive news, he was afforded his full Geneva Convention rights before being sacrificed in a death-cult ritual. We can all be comforted that he was not subject to the "attention getter" belly-slap before he was slaughtered like an animal.

The half-naked body of one of three missing U.S. soldiers was found on Wednesday in the Euphrates River in the town of Mussayab south of Baghdad, police said.

The U.S. military said it was investigating reports that a body had been found in a canal in the area.

Hilla police spokesman Captain Muthanna al-Maamouri said there were bullet wounds to the torso and head of the body, which was wearing U.S. Army-issue pants and boots and had a tattoo on the left arm.

Maamouri said the body had been turned over to U.S. forces.

Thousands of U.S. and Iraqi troops have been scouring farmlands through an area south of Baghdad known as the "Triangle of Death" since an ambush on May 12 in which four U.S soldiers and an Iraqi interpreter were killed.

The military isn't confirming the dead man's identity, but the way they refuse to confirm it -- citing the fact that their first priority is to inform the man's family -- is confirmation enough.

Thanks to dri.

More: They may have found the other two.

The bodies found show signs of torture.

I guess that means "signs of belly-slaps," because Andrew Sullivan assures me that slapping a terrorist fuckshit in the belly constitutes torture.
