Al Qaeda: "Oops, Our Bad. Next time we'll make sure we're beheading the right infidel"
Or, al Qaeda finally beheads someone who probably deserved it:
Militant Islamist rebels in Syria linked to al-Qaeda have asked for "understanding and forgiveness" for cutting off and putting on display the wrong man's head. In a public appearance filmed and posted online, members of Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, one brandishing a knife, held up a bearded head before a crowd in Aleppo. They triumphantly described the execution of what they said was a member of an Iraqi Shia militia fighting for President Bashar al-Assad.Also, I hereby give you permission to laugh. Thanks to Harry. And yes, I really was out of town yesterday. I don't know what Howie's excuse was. He sent me a garbled text. Something about "rest stop" and "bail money". I couldn't make heads nor tails out of it.
But the head was recognised from the video as originally belonging to a member of Ahrar al-Sham, a Sunni Islamist rebel group that often fights alongside ISIS though it does not share its al-Qaeda ideology. After inquiries, an ISIS spokesman admitted he was Mohammed Fares, an Ahrar commander reported missing some days ago.
