"Our mujahideen ... have managed to capture the American soldier John Adam after killing a number of his colleagues... We will cut his throat in 72 hours if our male and female prisoners in the occupation jails are not released"
Ansarnet.ws carried the above statement with a picture showing a U.S. soldier sitting in front of a black banner with a rifle pointed at his head. The mainstream media ran with the story, only to be placed in check by a few bloggers. The problem is that a) the US army is not aware of any missing soldiers and that b) "John Adams" is conspicuously similar looking to a toy model produced by DragonModels.
The following are the images of "John Adams" and the Toy as well as an animation comparing the two. It seems that some Mujahideen are getting pretty desperate. Would a successful Iraqi election have something to do with it?!
