American Hostage Paul Johnson Beheaded

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) - The al-Qaida group that kidnapped American Paul M. Johnson Jr. posted a statement on a Web site Friday saying it killed him, and displayed still photographs on the Internet of his beheaded body.

Separately, al-Arabiya television reported Friday that Johnson had been beheaded.

Reached by telephone, an official from Saudi-owned Al-Arabiya in Dubai told The Associated Press that the news of Johnson's death had been reported by the network's correspondent in the Saudi capital.

CNN reported that Al-Arabiya had a video of the killing, but the network official said there was no video.

The al Qaeda kidnappers had said the Saudi government had until Friday to free jailed militants or it would kill Johnson, a Lockheed Martin employee.

"As we promised the mujahideen we have beheaded the American hostage Paul Marshall after the deadline that the mujahideen gave to the tyrannical Saudi government passed," a statement signed by the Organization of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula said on the al Islah Web site.

The Web site showed pictures of what appeared to be Johnson's severed head resting on his body.

As noted here earlier in the week Johnson's fate was sealed from the beginning and he may have even been dead for days. The demands of the kidnappers were a ruse.

Update: The man at the top of the suspect list, Abdulaziz al-Moqrin was killed by the Saudi's Friday.

CAIRO, Egypt (AP) - The purported leader of al-Qaida in Saudi Arabia was killed in a raid in the capital Friday, Saudi security officials said. Abdulaziz al-Moqrin, 31, was killed by security forces who had surrounded militants in a downtown neighborhood shortly after the discovery of the body of an American killed earlier in the evening, the officials said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Al-Arabiya satellite station said two other militants, on Saudi Arabia's list of most wanted men, were also killed in the raid, and another was injured and arrested.

Al-Moqrin, who trained with Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan, is at the top of the list of suspects in Saudi Arabia and is believed to be the leader of the group calling itself al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, which claimed responsibility for Friday's beheading of American hostage Paul M. Johnson Jr.

Al-Moqrin's group has claimed responsibility for most attacks against Westerners in Saudi Arabia in the past two months.

Our family's prayers are with Mr. Johnson's family.

BoDiddly:

As I mentioned in a previous post--I wouldn't be surprised if this actually happened several days ago. From what I gathered, the new demand is that the U.S. release all Al-Qaida prisoners. I say we behead them all and put the pics and video on a website somewhere. No prisoners=no negotiation.

I'd also still like to see American hackers pummelling these websites into nonexistence that distribute this type of material. Without an open channel of communication, the power of such images would be greatly diminished.

My heart goes out to Johnson's family. I can't begin to imagine the pain they are experiencing, and I truly hope that his death will be avenged upon those who perpetrated it, and upon those who side with them.

Robert:

here are the photos: http://www.ogrish.com/...I am very saddened by this, after watching interviews and pleas from his family yesterday I knew it could only end this way, and I am sure video is coming, those monsters wouldn't have it any other way.

While I supported the Bush Administration on some issues before 9/11, I find it sad that they have gone into Iraq and literally took away so mmuch manpower from finding additional Al-Queda members in the countries they are actually hiding.. Richard Clark explains so well in his book about this, under the Bush administration, we simply did the wrong thing with Iraq.

Imagine all those soldiers searching Saudi Arabia or Afghan. for Al Queda and Osama, we would be much further ahead. Instead our entire military goes into another country.

Another big mistake was not sending thousands of soldiers to watch more of the borders leading outside Afghanastan when we attacked. They all had exit plans and we just let them leave. Granted the borders there are very hard to secure, but why didn't we even try to surround them and catch many of these men? Now they have dispursed even further worldwide.

My deepest sympathies to the family of Paul Johnson.

I think it is important to make these pictures available to Americans, for the reasons I gave when I made the Daniel Pearl and Nick Berg videos available. There are people who do not think Americans should see them, and that's enough reason to make sure they can be seen. I doubt they'll be shown on the evening news, as there is a persistent resistance to reporting anything which shows our enemies to be evil.

Had Matt Drudge not posted them, I doubt I would have found them. Probably because of web traffic, Drudge is not loading properly, right now. He may take them down, and I think they should be available to every American who wants to see them. (Especially to those who are unfamiliar with or unwilling to confront the reality of evil.)

Where are the "civilized" Muslims of the world while these savages murder in the name of their god? There simply does not appear to be a truly "civilized" Muslim; or there simply is not one with sufficient faith to denounce the barbaric acts that bind them with their brethren. Undoubtedly, it is the idiocy of our own self destructive liberal populace (aclu & ucla types) that will one day characterize these truisms as hate speech.

It simply is a wrong judgement for anyone to believe that as a people, they think this is ok. He's worried about his own safety here in Minneapolis, Minnesota because of the prejudiced people, it's creating alot of hatred here, and there are many people willing to hurt someone innocent right here in revenge , so are some of us any better? I agree with you that leaders of Arab countries and people who have the ability to be heard much wider than my friend should be out there opposing this type of activity.

My frustration with President Bush over the whole War on Terror is that I just don't believe we have gone far enough. Lets put many more troops in the Middle East. Lets go into Iraq, Afghanistan, Saudia Arabia etc and take care of business. All out shock and awe.
But, here is the scary point to me, if one of the most horrible things I can think of coming out of the elections this year and that liar Kerry were to be elected, I am honestly concerned that we will see those muslims beheading Americans here in our homeland. These extremists will not be afraid of wimpy whining slimy liberal politicians. For our own safety, President Bush must be elected.

I am in the middle of an upload on my Blog, when it is done, I intend to Blog this. I see the hate mongers coming out already. I did not know Paul Johnson, but I know he himself was considering converting to Islam, and I know he loved Saudi Arabia and the culture of TRUE Islam, which this barbarism does not include.
For all of you people who are insulting the religion, are you ignoring the fact that the Grand Imam of Saudi Arabia, the equivalent of an Islamic Pope, basically excommunicated these assholes today (I guess they are not with the 9 virgins right now), since they were killed by the Saudis this afternoon. AND that a Muslim friend of his and many other Muslims, on websites and interviews on Arab TV, begged for Paul's life. What will be as disgusting as his cowardly murder, is dirtying his name and legacy with words and acts of hate against a religion that he apparently loved.

But think of every major attack against the US and US interests abroad since the Vietnamese war was over in the mid 1970's. Who was responsible for almost every single one of those attacks? Extremist Muslims. All Muslims may not be murderers; however, when you wake up and realize who is doing the killing maybe we should wake up and keep a better eye on many of these evil people.

We should have been keeping an eye on the Saudi's for a long time, but based on news coming out of Afghanistan in the last couple of days:

*Attacks by Taliban/Al Quaeda forces of as many as 100.

eclipsegurl:

The Americans who are living and working in the Middle East were aware of the dangers that could happen as the war against terror proceeded. These men and women were offered more money in a month than the average American makes in a year here at home. I think we would all give it a second thought to make $100,000 a year tax free. I'm sure that they felt that the risk was worth the financial gain. We are a compasionate minded society and impathize with the families when one of our own is murdered is such a brutal, inhumane way. We cannot fathom what drives such hate as these extremist have for us. Yes it is sad that we all flock to web sites to get a glimpse of the brutality and torture that these people have suffered but I stongly believe that this should be kept at the forefront of our minds. We shouldn't forget about 9/11, David Pearl, Nick Berg or Paul Johnson. The innocent are the targets they are going after. We must support our Administration to continue the search and possibly wipe out this plite that has affected all of our lives. If we allow them to get what they want, they will be on our soil spreading their torture like wild fire.

My heart goes out to Paul Johnson's family.

Somadatthem:

I believe that this is a galvanizing event for Americans in the fight against the terrorist savages. I feel that Americans have had enough of seeing our citizens kidnapped and brutally murdered by these camel humping greaseballs.

We Americans actually helped to STOP the MURDER of MUSLIMS by the serbs in Kosovo less than a decade ago. Those thugs choose not to consider that fact. The Islamic rhetoric about Infidels is just a bunch of garbage spewing out of the mouths of powerless thugs acting in the name of Islam.

Personally I believe that Americans have had enough. There will be payback against muslims in America. Mosques will burn and hopefully some muslims will be kidnapped and their heads will be taken off with a chain saw. Innocent or not.

Those animals do not understand or care about anything except violence. They are a religion of cowards. All of them. The "peace loving" followers of Islam that others have mentioned are nothing but cowards. They do nothing to denounce the acts of those commiting atrocities in the name of their religion. Their complacency is the same as condoning the terrorist actions.

Brace yourself, because Muslims will die in this country. I for one won't condemn the people who kill them.

Why did these muslim animals (with apologies to actual animals) do this? Why, because he was American and they could. It is time to take the gloves off. Enough. Enough of the Geneva Conventions, which were for nations and entered into with the idea that both sides of a conflict would honor them. Enough of the UN, those sorry apologists for and financiers of monsters. Enough of the EU and old Europe and their pandering cheese-eating ways. Enough of the ISM and ANSWER and CAIR and Amnesty International and Michael Moore and his treasonous so-called documentaries. Enough of every single moron who doesn't understand that there is a war to the end and our only voice in the matter is whether we fight it and whose end it will be. Enough. The ideology of Islamism, which will shed blood of good godly men like Paul Johnson and Danny Pearl and Nick Berg and countless others to its dying breath must be eradicated, branch and root. There must be nothing left of it. Nothing. Not one Islamist mosque. Not one madrassa. Not one website. Not one murdering jihadi. Nothing. That's when we'll be safe from this Islamic psychosis. Not before.

These people need to be taught a lesson with there own medicine. I say we unload a bunch of pissed off navy seals on there ass. Our way of life is at stake here. These people want to kill what makes us american and I am so tired of hearing people bitch about the war. Thank god we finally have a president in office who isnt afraid to kick some ass. September 11th wasnt the first time we were attacked, what about the uss cole and all the other instances before that. Our country has been under attack for a long time and its about time the US stands up for herself. I think our forefathers would have heavy hearts today if they heard the reactions of many americans. I hope a hundred years from now we arnt speaking arabic here. If we did what most americans say which is pull out that might just be a reality.

Kadir:

Dear Friends, as a Muslim I can clearly state you that this act has nothing to do with Islam. Islam doesn't approve of acts that may result in conflict and disorder, and results in any body's agony. One of the biggest sins in our religion is to constitute disorder among humans and thus make all other people, Muslim or not unhappy. Please look at Ottoman History in more detail, from true sources. They, especially in their early ages, were the real representative of human rights and civilization. Don't believe me immediately, please read objective information regarding all civilization's history.
I am a Turkish Engineer, I, too know that Arabic culture, as well as ours look to be discharming but that's for the time being. Please see the horror and pain that Iraqies are witnessing now. They don't look civilized, they don't dress good but that's because most of them are just trying to live. Let them live like other people, give them chances to prove themselves. I personally knew so many unlucky bright people that never had the chance to prove themselves. Let's respect everybody in this world who wants the world more peaceful..

Of course that would mean that the next time there is an earthquake or flood or disease outbreak, in one of the vermin infested countries that you hail from, America should not send any of the aid, money, medicine or food that you leeches rely on for your survival. The next time you ignoramuses allow a murdering tyrant to rule your countries and plunge your people into poverty and you all load on to your home made boats America will slam the door in your face when you come here to "seek a better life".

As far as I am concerned the whole world can kiss our fat american asses. We don't need you, you need us you ungrateful morons.

I would love to see America leave the United Nations and let the rest of the world fend for themselves. With the exception of a few civilized countries the rest of the world consists of lazy, unintelligent scumbags who, just because they are living and breathing, are a bigger waste of natural resources just because they exist.

Sure we could stop helping and see how long you flounder on the sand before you die. We are a proud country, a loving country and a united country. When you mess with one of our own, you've got the entire nation to deal with on your ass. I'm sure that the Muslums who are here on US soil should be quaking in their boots. The innocent who've died in recent weeks did not die in vein. Already over the weekend Muslums have been threatened with death in Tampa, FL.

Dear Friends;

A human is a human. Take one person, invesitgate him or her in more detail. You will see that nobody can be considered as totally corrupted or bad. This obviously doesn't mean that people can do evil and suppose there is nothing wrong.

My conclusion is that, the solution to all of the problems in the world, including what we are witnessing now, is to respect each other and remember we have only one world to live in.

Climatic shift we are witnessing these years is far more important and constitute a greater peoblem to all of us. Let's try to get ready for those, too..

For those of you who make general comments about other nations of the world, I can understand but I need to make the following comment:
I have been to many places in the world, life is nowhere easy. The point is to try and struggle for better. We live for sixty, seventy years and we witnessed technology didn't bring good things always, so we should try to keep a balance between humanity and other realities.

I love you all, and I will always do this.. Everybody, Please don't be prejudiced, We can all be living together, in peace, nobody leaves forever,

Somadatthem:

Justice, quit living in the past. The blood of Christianity that you cite took place back in the dark ages. The Crusades were centuries ago. The things that you mention took place back when people thought that the world was flat and that the sun revolved around the earth! The world is a different place now and the masses are better educated and "should know better by now".

The problem is that those murdering camel humpers in the middle east are still dwelling on ancient territorial issues. They take up the cause and the plight of the Palestinians...but I do not see one Arab nation offering to take those people into their country and offer them land so that they can call someplace their home. They are all a bunch of greasy ignorant pigs who have a personal lust for power. They hide behind causes and send ignorant young people off to kill themselves in the name of their god Allah. They are horny pigs so they dangle the promise of virgins in front of hormone ravaged kids so that the kids can murder on their behalf. Cowards. Fools.
I would cut off their dicks, shove them down their throats then cut off their heads and beat them with the bottom of my shoe. If there is anything more disrespectful that can be done then I would gladly do it. That is how lowly I regard the Islamic faith and it's followers.

Justice, you must be a frustrated and unsuccesfull person because you call the American government ignorant. It is obvious that you have no personal success in your life and you are looking to others to blame your failures on. Sounds just like the losers who are committing the terrorist acts.

Hi, Personally i'm tired of all the fighting and hatred. For one thing usin nucular weapons is stupid. Every single breathing thing would b killed. Then what? You would kill urself to kill everyone on earth. I personally respect all people. I treat them like i would like them to treat me. We are all made of the same stuff, blood, bones, hair, organs, skin. We just have different ethnic backrounds, religions, lauanges, and beliefs. We all need air to live. Why can't we all just get along. Make some sort of treaty or agreement to stop all this nonsence. What are we provin with war? That we can fire a gun, take an innocent life? All we are showing is that are heartless killing people who can't get along like mature adults. Killing people won't make things better, or fix them. I'm scared to death of bein killed by some big nucular warhead. Usin one of thoes will kill ur people and u and us. What is the point in that? CAN'T WE JUST ALL GROW THE FRICK UP AND GET ALONG LIKE MATURE ADULTS!?

I am NOT a person who believes in murder of ANYONE, however, under these particular circumstances, I say it's a damned SHAME we can't just bomb the HELL out of them ALL, men, women and children alike, so they can NO LONGER REPRODUCE!!! Hey, no more of THEM, and no more malicious, barbaric, sensless murders, right?-- (hmph, only in a PERFECT world, I suppose...) Paul Johnson's story hits very close to home for me, and makes my heart weep--- I am in A&P school, learning to be an aviation mechanic... my dream is to be government contracted, to work on F-18 fighter jets, (since I was 16-- I'm now "30 something"...) My heart goes out to Mr. Johnson's family and friends... as WELL, to Nick Burg's-- this has gotten very old, VERY quickly and these barbarians have GOT TO BE STOPPED, some how, some way, NOW!!! God Bless Paul Johnson, God Bless Nick Burg, and GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!...

Casey James:

Well.....before at hand accusing the Muslim..I'm also a devout Christian..still feel that we shouldn't forget what we have done to the Muslims in Abu Gharib prison...ermmmm....how about those weak Palestinians tortured and brutally killed by Israel and supported by U.S. all these while...Get to think about it...To stop a fire, not by pouring more oil but how to find a pail or more pails of water. Americans have to admit mistakes for interfering other countries political agenda. What gives the rite to U.S. and Britons to intervene? Russian does not give a damn bout it...Plsss...American should think they will not be forever the superpower in military and economics. Recent studies indicates that China and Russia may be taking the lead in giantising their roles as the super powers. Last but not least, help America by sending Bush out from power. Keep our own business in our territory. Lots more can be done to upgrade our social disagreement among our people.There are still poor people in our country. Bush, don't take more risks okay...Cool down and admit our mistakes....and don't ever take advice from any Israel or Jewish proxies in the government.We should stand as American as an entity..no more divided by race, religion and sex...Show to the world that we can lead a civilized world by making us as example of peace nation to other people.Sell the idea and not to sell the weapon.

Andrew:

I see that you all complain about 'murder in the name of religion'. Bush is doing the same exact thing, fighting in the name of his god. Christians have done it for years, well BEFORE the muslims ever had. That's the basis of religion. The I'm right you're wrong policy of hatred and intolerance. I fully am disgusted by the brutality and inhumanity in the beheadings, but I'm also disgusted at the fact that our 'elected dictator' has chosen to do the exact same, much of it illegally in Iraq, based on the constitutionality and international policy this nation so proudly thinks it abides by. We should not be in Iraq, it should have been the other Islamic nations to take Saddam out. And there is no proven link between Al'Qaida and Iraq, just as there is no proof of weapons of mass destruction. It's an unnecessary war that results in thousands of unnecessary deaths. Afghanistan however, we should be flattening with Titans as we speak. The arab world is not a world of hatred and mistrust, there are more than enough reasons for them to mistrust us. The terrorists are hateful, but they have legitimate causes, they want freedom from all oppression, and they see us as the great tyrant. I'm not saying they're right, far from it, but we're not right either. But that's just the world we live in. No one has the BALLS to admit they're wrong.

You display your goods on a tv show called Third Watch. This show has people getting killed as a form of entertainment. I have a problem with this, and last night they killed an eight year old child. If you must promote violence on tv, why don't you just do it with adults

Dave:

I was reading through this and saw a comment by mike on the appointment of this country to the gardianship of freedom and who appointed us in that role....funny it seems as if the world appointed us as the world police man...seems like whenever there is trouble who do they turn to????The U.S. We have been placed in this role since we were dragged into WW2, and since then americans have continued to lay their lives down to defend what we believe is right.

Let me see what happened...... (Below threshold)
Dave:

Let me see what happened..........I was there in Bosnia, can't do much when your hands are tied. We were a good country???Hows about we still are a GREAT country......and hows about you do some time for your government.......I have served over 12 yrs both active and reserve and am still in now. I don't want to die, but if dying is what I have to do so that you can maintain your freedom and rights and to preserve the American way of life then so be it..........Funny thing is, when a person of the muslim faith goes out and commits horrible crimes against others it is called Jihad and acceptable but when we mistreat someone (and by all means I know as a military person we do mistreat, beat and generally torture people in our own fashions) it is a world travisty. Fuck you and your rightousness. Another thing.....lets look at this...in every major conflict going on in this world right now who is involved????MUSLIMS..........not christians, not buddists....MUSLIMS.....and not Americans....look at this point for a moment.......what is happening there in Iraq, afganistan.....muslims vs. US. Look what is happening in Chechneya, russians vs muslims.........look at Yugoslavia.....Muslims vs everyone....why is it at the root of all things going on is it a muslim issue vs. the world thing.. Point taken.....again I state... the world made us what we are...big brother, policeman, rescuer. Stop coming to us and let us turn a blind eye......like i said before I dont want to die....but if I must i will proudly bear that cross........just like the muslim faith has holy warriors...well I guess you could say that as an a american i am a holy warrior too..

gara:

so You are saying that West and East is determine to eliminate Islam and Mouslims ???

If is so, then let it be. I never was a true mouslim but will defend my liberty.
In that case will proudly bear the flag of Mouhamed as you sead "but if I must i will proudly bear that cross........just like the muslim faith has holy warriors...well I guess you could say that as an a american i am a holy warrior too.."

As for now I wish you all the best and let peace be with us.

May God take us all to the right side, make this world better than it is today, and save our souls from Hellfire. I don't know what kind of man P. Johnson was, but he did not deserve this. I pray for him, and for all of you who let the Islam look like a Religion of Evil.
