Details of Islamic extremist Web site that posted new beheading video; mirrored material available to credentialed journalists
The Ansar-Alsunnah Web site (http://ansar-alsunnah.s5.co) has posted a video of an Iraqi hostage being beheaded.
The Web site is registered as a subdomain on s5.com, a provider of free hosting.
Portions of the site, including several graphics, are also hosted on the Lycos Tripod network of free Web sites. s5 is owned by United Group, a Woodland Hills, Calif. consumer Internet company that provides services to NetZero and Juno.
The beheading video, which appears to have been disabled, was hosted through a file sharing service called yousendit.com.
The actual page which provided links to the beheading video (and contains a still image of the hostage alive as of this posting) is also hosted by Tripod (http://top-top0.tripod.com/Mukawel.htm).
Bear in mind that some or all of these links will likely be disabled at some point after this story is posted.
INTELWIRE had mirrored a substantial portion of the site, and will make copies available to credentialed journalists. The beheading video itself could not be obtained by INTELWIRE.
Views expressed on INTELWIRE are those of the author alone.

Their smart, granular analysis is a bracing antidote to both facile dismissals and wild exaggerations... a nuanced and readable account of the ideological and organizational origins of the group." -- Washington Post
