New Photo Exposes 'Soldier Beheading' Hoax
By J.M. Berger
The image above was posted to a message board used by Islamic extremists today. According to the posting, the hoax was perpetrated by a 20-year-old Iraqi who made the photograph, along with some children. The posting said the 20-year-old regretted the hoax posting. It was not clear whether the 20-year-old who took the photo also posted the false claims about a U.S. soldier being held captive (see item below), or if the photo found its way to the Web without his knowledge.
