    Suicide bomb instructor goes boom, kills 22 militants

    Best story I've seen in weeks:

    BAGHDAD — A group of Sunni militants attending a suicide bombing training class at a camp north of Baghdad were killed on Monday when their commander unwittingly conducted a demonstration with a belt that was packed with explosives, army and police officials said.

    The militants belonged to a group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, which is fighting the Shiite-dominated army of the Iraqi government, mostly in Anbar Province. But they are also linked to bomb attacks elsewhere and other fighting that has thrown Iraq deeper into sectarian violence.

    Twenty-two ISIS members were killed, and 15 were wounded, in the explosion at the camp, which is in a farming area in the northeastern province of Samara, according to the police and army officials. Stores of other explosive devices and heavy weapons were also kept there, the officials said.

    Twenty-two ISIS members were killed, and 15 were wounded, in the explosion at the camp, which is in a farming area in the northeastern province of Samara, according to the police and army officials. Stores of other explosive devices and heavy weapons were also kept there, the officials said.

    Eight militants were arrested when they tried to escape, the officials said.
    Sounds like a good start.

    I had no idea that donning an explosive, running into a crowd, and hitting the trigger required training.






    I have, apparently, over estimated our opponent.

    Right? I have to wonder as to why we're living in such fear and authorizing gross government force and power for a group of people who couldn't even figure out how to blow themselves up on their own. These aren't quite the intellectual masterminds we were lead to believe.

    I feel terrible for this (but not really), but I still can't help but think about the Jeff Dunham skit with Achmed the Dead Terrorist.

    "Jeff Dunham: [referring to the suicide bomber training camp] Is that a nice facility?
    Achmed the Dead Terrorist: It used to be.
    Jeff Dunham: What happened?
    Achmed the Dead Terrorist: New guy. The idiot tried to practice.
    Jeff Dunham: What did you guys learn from that?
    Achmed the Dead Terrorist: Location, location, location."

    Wow.

    I'll bet that was a shock to that 'explosive expert', eh?

    I'll bet that the won't try that again.




    I'm not laughing. but I am shaking my head in disbelief.
