Al-Qaeda group apologizes for cutting wrong guy’s head off

How to decapitate victim Al QaedaOver half a century ago, Country Pop singer Brenda Lee made it to the top of the charts by begging for forgiveness with “I’m Sorry.” Not as hummable and what many consider less than sincere, an al Qaeda-aligned terrorist group in the Middle East is also begging forgiveness for the “accidental” beheading of the wrong man, as reported by The Telegraph (of London, United Kingdom) on Nov. 14, 2013.

Oops, I Did It Again…

Infamous for publicly beheading, the al-Qaeda-allied group Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) is asking for “understanding and forgiveness” after lopping off and publicly displaying the noggin of one Mohammed Fares.

ISIS makes a point of making their executions very public to the point of including videos of the gruesome deaths.

The terror gang takes pride in announcing the deaths at their hands of Catholic and Orthodox clerics and laity as well as soldiers of the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Decapitation Happens…

True to form, ISIS posted online one of their members triumphantly holding up a bearded and understandably bloody head of a poor sap who they thought was a member of a pro-Assad militia group. Only then was it realized that the head sans body was actually the coconut of the recently departed.

Press reports are unclear on whether there was anything remotely resembling a trial for Fares before his execution, but after the fact it was revealed that he was a brother-in-arms of ISIS as member of an allied group, Ahrar al-Sham.
