Police: 20 headless bodies found

October 29th, 2007 . by TexasFred

BAGHDAD – Twenty decapitated bodies were found dumped near a police station on Monday west of the volatile city of Baqouba in Iraq, police said Monday.

There was no immediate information on who the victims were. Baqouba, about 40 miles northeast of Baghdad, is a mixed Sunni and Shiite city that has been torn sectarian violence.

In Baghdad, a U.S. brigadier general was wounded in an IED attack Monday, the U.S. military reported. He was the highest-ranking American officer to be hurt since the conflict began in March 2003.

Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Dorko was in stable condition and was evacuated to Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany. His injuries were not life-threatening, officials said. A second soldier wounded in the attack was treated and released.

Dorko is commanding general of the Army Corps of Engineers’ Gulf Region Division.

Also Monday, a suicide bomber on a bicycle blew himself up in a crowd of police recruits, killing at least 29 people, police and hospital officials said. Separately, a group of kidnapped Sunni and Shiite sheiks were freed, a government spokesman said.

Police: 20 headless bodies found

Damn the MSM, damn them all to hell, how DARE they make up these stories??

I mean, wasn’t it just a day or so back that the White House and DoD were telling us how things were going so well in Iraq?? 29 Iraqis blown up, 20 more found decapitated, I’d hate to see what Iraq would look like on a BAD day…

Oh, wait, I forgot, that’s the way it rolls now, the White House runs off at the mouth about how successful they’ve been in Iraq and instead of wiping the insurgents off the face of the earth, they apparently leave more than enough of them in place to once again make them look rather foolish for their premature announcement, again…

Maybe a wounded General will get some attention, maybe we’ll have an ACTIVE DUTY General Officer come forward and say the things that need to be said concerning the reality of Iraq, but what the hell, even if he did it wouldn’t matter, it would be written off as ‘an axe to grind’ and the fact that he’s not a COMBAT General, he’s Corps of Engineers, and that’s all different you know…

Yeah, sure it is…

    Pentagon officials confirmed to FOX News that Brigadier Gen. Jeffrey J. Dorko, commander of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Gulf Region Division in Baghdad, was one of two soldiers wounded Monday by an improvised explosive device (IED) in northern Baghdad.

    Military officials said Dorko suffered shrapnel wounds and was flown to Landstuhl Army Hospital in Germany for treatment. His wounds were described as non-life threatening.

    The other soldier was treated and released.

    Dorko was traveling Monday morning with a private security team belonging to Erinys International when the attack occurred in northern Baghdad.

    29 blown up, 20 decapitated, 49 total right after an all is well type announcement…

    IF I was an Iraqi, every time an American politician said something good about Iraq, I’d barricade myself in my house and open fire on ANYONE coming up the steps….

    I do notice some Iraqi’s are starting to see the real enemy, it wasn’t Americans that cut those heads off, it wasn’t Americans that blew up 29 people, it has taken 5 years for the retards to notice, but HOPEFULLY (Doubtfully) they will rise to the occasion….

    You know as well as I do Fred, we are going to have troops in Iraq for a LONG time, no matter who wins the election, or any promises they make…. Unfortunate but it is a fact.

    You would think after 5 years and all the death that happens right after Bush speaks, he would STFU and let the military announce the news…he’s already FUBAR’d the Iraq situation, it is only better because he’s got a LOT better leaders in their now, let em do their jobs so they can get home.

    Hey Fred, this story appears to be in question, the 20 headless bodies part anyway.

    Now, I am skeptical about anything the media, or the administration says, so I am not calling the story bogus yet..
