Margaret Hassan Killed


Al-Jazeera says it has received a tape showing the murder of hostage Margaret Hassan, the British CARE worker missing since October 19.

No group has taken responsibility for this appalling act. Whole story here.

Back in May, when Islamist psychopaths beheaded Nick Berg, Reason's Charles Paul Freund looked at the "age of comparative atrocity." It's a piece that is sadly still all too relevant.
