The Lowest Low of al-Qaeda

Sphere: Related Content

We've seen al-Qaeda do some horrific things from behead Danny Pearl and Nick Berg to subjugate whole towns, but this to me is at least as horrific:

Al Qaeda fanatics plumbed sickening new depths yesterday when they turned two women with Down's syndrome into human bombs to kill 70 people in Baghdad.

The unwitting pawns were apparently fooled into wearing explosive vests which were then detonated remotely by mobile phones as the women mingled with crowds.

The two blasts caused carnage at two busy markets in the Iraqi capital's deadliest atrocity since last spring.
Not only did they use women, they used mentally disabled women who had no way of even contempleting what was happening to them (thank God for small favors).

This is the scum we're fighting against, this is the enemy we are against.

My jet-lagged mund can't come up with anything more than to ask are these the people that Hillary and Obama will negotiate with instead of exterminate?

Will the world's leading Muslims come out against this atrocity? One can hope but I'm not optimistic.

I'm inclined to agree with the Confederate Yank that this is indeed a sign that al-Qaeda is desperate.
