Fake, but accurate (bwahahahaha!)

The schadenfreude from Rathergate continues:

Iraqi militants claimed in a Web statement Tuesday to have taken an American soldier hostage and threatened to behead him in 72 hours unless the Americans release Iraqi prisoners.

The posting, on a Web site that frequently carried militants' statements, included a photo of what appeared to be an American soldier in desert fatigues seated with his hands tied behind his back.

Only problem is, it's a fake. The indomitable Freepers have come through again and discovered "John Adams'" true identity: he's a doll.

Well, at least now we know the truth. The moonbats can no longer deny the reality of an Iraq-C.O.B.R.A. connection. And if they're targeting our action figures for hostages, we can always send in Optimus Prime to drop a train on 'em.

Dan Rather has stated that although the photo is clearly a fake, he stands behind the story of the kidnapping.

Intelligence officials say they know who betrayed the soldier to the insurgents.
