Four U.S. Contractors Killed in Iraq

Yahoo News

BAGHDAD, Iraq - An angry mob of insurgents attacked a convoy of American contractors last month when they got lost in a town north of Baghdad, killing four and wounding two, the U.S. military said on Sunday.

One of the contractors was made to kneel and then was shot in the back of his head. Another contractor was doused with gasoline and set afire and burned alive while, "Barefoot children, yelping in delight, piled straw on to the screaming man's body to stoke the flames."
The crowd then "dragged their corpses through the street, chanting anti-U.S. slogans," the report said.
The contractors were employed by Kellog, Root and Brown and the brutality took place on September 20th but is just being reported now.

Let's see if this gets the same media coverage and expressed outrage as the story of rotting Taliban corpses getting burned in Afghanistan by American soldiers has been getting.

Don't hold your breath. Hat tip to LGF and The Political Teen.
