Begin original post:


Al-Qaida-linked militants have posted a videotape on a Web site purportedly showing a kidnapped Turkish driver's beheading.

The video has the victim identifying himself as one of the Turkish contractors kidnapped last month. He speaks in Turkish with Arabic subtitles, describing his job transporting goods to an American military base in Mosul.

After that, the picture fades to a black screen with a title reading "the execution," followed by warnings from masked, armed militants to foreign drivers and grisly footage of the beheading.

The video was digitally dated August 17th. It was posted on the Web site used by a a group headed by Jordanian militant Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.

Updates later.

UPDATE: The victim's name is Durmus Kumdereli. He was killed last month. What is especially odd about this is that his companion, Mustafa Koksal, was released a month ago. Why would they let one go and kill the other one?

UDATE II: Video, courtesy Northeast Intelligence Network Backup video here (hat tip to Cindy and Sworn Enemy).

: I grabbed some images from that sites video. I will link a video if another site puts it up. Scroll down for images. Warning, very graphic.




I do not recommend that you click to the site who's URL you see in the vidcap. It is a site that publishes gruesome images as well as pornography--seemingly for their prurient interests. Many of us believe that the images, such as the one you see above, should be seen so that we understand the brutality of our enemies. This is a war against a kind of savagery that many think no longer exists. Remember what these bastards are capable of.

1 Man, that sad list just keeps growing.

2 According to the AP article the Turks claimed to rescue the second hostage 4 days after he was kidnapped (which would be the 17th or 18th of August).

Either the terrorists are lying and covering up the rescue, or the Turks are lying, in which case...

4 Rusty,

You and I both know that 98% of the people in this world, especially here in the United States have no CLUE as to the barbaric savagery of these terrorists. If they did, I swear they'd be more support in getting rid of them around the globe.

5 Found the video on the website for NEIN.

Posted by: firstbrokenangel at September 13, 2004 11:45 PM

6 Thanks for hat-tipping me, I appreciate that. NEIN does like to remove minutes that they feel are extremely gruesome for the sake of the readers - like they did with the Nepalese. At least that is Laura Mansfield's point.

7 thenausea.com has it too. Longer version. Gross.

How did these people come to be? How do they find such pleasure in such a barbaric act? How can they even do it without puking? I honestly do not know what makes terrorists tick.

Can anyone explain to me this mindset?

9 I am appalled beyond words that this video was posted here. Where is your dignity for the family...i am not sure who is worse here, the animals in the video's or you for showing no respect for the victims families.

Remove it!!

10 It's a real tuff one. To destroy all the footage is like choosing ignorance. I decided to watch the footage and my heart fell as before I had not imagined such acts of barbarity possible. What a complete and utter disregard for life. This breed of human has been grossly misinformed from birth.
If nothing else allow the footage of these poor innocent victims deaths to be shown in order to raise awareness.
Us as a species has made this World a very sick place to live and all based around our belief in something that has never been seen and doesn't exist!!!

11 how can one feel sympathy for these people who have no value for human life. to do this inhumane taking of one's life so cruely can only increase the hatred of these animals ( then again an animal kills quickly and cleanly) these are not animals they are the hitlers reborn.
they are not fit to raise children nor fit to live. stopping the video is only making one turn a blind eye to these barbarians, wake up world face facts these people(garbage) need WASTING

12 I agree with you grandmother of 6. The way they kill is slowly. They seem to get pleasure from doing this because they keep doing it the same way latlely. I can't stand these people. Are they imbreed? I don't understand how they can do this. I wish something could be done to kill off all of those people. All they are doing is taking up air.

Posted by: misty at September 23, 2004 01:08 PM

13 what i dont understand is how a person could do this to someone else. how do these people sleep at night? is this something that they can forget as an everyday thing? that is completely sick! everyone in the world has differences to other people. but to kill someone like that and at all to prove a point in unreal. these men had nothing to do with whats happening...

14 its unbelieveable how sick these people are do they have no families

Posted by: emma at September 30, 2004 12:03 AM

15 these gutless bastards can't even show their faces for this so called cause! they even cover the eyes of their victims to blot out the shame. Death to them and their families, death to religion the root of ALL evil in this sad and twisted world. they sing and laugh but they will never be free from the evil they are living!!!

16 I don't blame those people, I blame Islam for that, and I think Sadam wes right to kill those kind of people like animal.

17 My friend recently returned from Iraq. He has been helping the Red Cross in digging wells for the people in the villages without water. You need to take a look at the destruction that the american army is doing over there. Children are dying daily from the massive air strikes in Fallujah. He says the soldiers kill innocent people for fun and have a total disregard for the iraqi people. They opened fire on a non-violent protest in May and killed 170 people. Just like that. We didn't hear about that one on CNN. Another ironic fact that he passed on was re: the Ministry of Oil and how that was the first building that was secured. It has to this day remained unscarred while the buildings around it are left to ruin. You know, 3 hard facts remain: 1. No WMD's found, 2. Tyrants have been untouched by the U.S in other nations such as Darfur Sudan, Moggabe in Zimbabwe, North Korea, Ivory Coast, the list goes on... Saddam (hand-picked by the americans) has now been found to have no real links with Al Quaeda as admitted by Rumsfeld. What is the difference between the tyrant of Iraq and those mentioned above?; 3. Bin Laden is still at large.

This is not a war, it is an invasion. The biggest lie comes from the puppet iraqi government and US forces stating that the insurgents want to create unrest in iraq. History tells us that the rich and powerful nations have always used propaganda and force to create unrest in developing countries rich with natural resources for their own purposes. One does not want to view their own country as being an invader of another, particularly us in the West, but the reality is, it's true.

18 where is ken bigley?

19 There are many animals and sadists in this world espessially in the middle east. When they are not put in a jail other people suffer. And it does not matter who they are. So Fucking W.Bush created mess in Irak. And now he has to be executed first. Then there will be peace.
All american propaganda must be put down . Most NATO people are fuckers.THOSE WHO ARE KILLED ARE INNOCENT. A couple of nuclear bombs would be good for the whole midle east. Then nobody would suffer any more. And nobody would fight for oil too. Fuck turks though. They are most fuckers in this world.They are the most garbage of this civilization. Their country should have been attacked instead but they have much oil. Some of them are good... . But you can not compare them with arab people. Turks are idiots at least and ass fuckers. Fuck all stupid europeans and other fuckers.
This is sadism. Nothing else- nobody proves nothing. All these guys should have been in jail at least. But there are many fuckers in this world who has to care for something but they don't. They want people to suffer. In conclusion fuck Bush and his friends including Turkey

20 i feel sad for those people who thinks they really know what's really going on to this war in iraq,telling that those beheading started because of the invasion of iraq. what the hella you thinkin? it just started when the video of american soldiers torturing iraqi prisoners were released. im not trying to justifify those DAMN AL ZARQAWI(they will go to hell for sure), what im trying to point here is that there are incidents occurs to that place that is beyond our knowledge because some are trying to protect their own brutality, thanks for those courageous and rightful one who set this things out. main thing is that all involved in here have their own gruesome acts.
