Islamic Terrorists In Iraq Kidnapping People For Use In Car Bombs

In case there was any doubt in your mind that evil existed in the world, this Fox story on the new tactics of the Islamic terrorists in Iraq should convince you:

Iraqi insurgents are no longer using just volunteers as suicide car bombers but are instead kidnapping drivers, rigging their vehicles with explosives and blowing them up , the Defense Ministry said Thursday.          

In what appears to be a new tactic for the insurgency, the ministry said the kidnap victims do not know their cars have been loaded with explosives when they are released .       

The ministry issued a statement saying that first "a motorist is kidnapped with his car. They then booby trap the car without the driver knowing. Then the kidnapped driver is released and threatened to take a certain road."       

The kidnappers follow the car and when the unwitting victim "reaches a checkpoint, a public place, or an army or police patrol, the criminal terrorists following the driver detonate the car from a distance ," the Defense Ministry statement said.
