Action Figures

Some not altogether-bright terrorists, (or possibly a fluent Arabic-speaking prankster) posted this photo of a new American serviceman allegedly taken hostage today:
A statement posted with the picture suggested the group was holding other soldiers. "Our mujahadeen heroes of Iraq's Jihadi Battalion were able to capture American military man John Adam after killing a number of his comrades and capturing the rest," said the statement, signed by the "Mujahedeen Brigades." "God willing, we will behead him if our female and male prisoners are not released from U.S. prisons within the maximum period of 72 hours from the time this statement has been released," the statement said. The posting did not show any ID card for the alleged captive and no organization's name was written on the black banner, as have appeared in some past claims of kidnappings. The man's uniform had no U.S. insignia or names visible.
Probably because "John Adam" is an action figure manufactured by Dragon Models USA. I think Barbie better call off her fact-finding mission.
