Original June 18th Post:

It seems the latest beheading video (of contractor Paul Johnson) is especially graphic.

I hope this means I won't be seeing more right-wing vandalism (photo) in response to this beheading as there was the last time.

Some of these groups have indicated one of their aims is to see Bush relected (post), and that may be one of their aims with these beheadings and videos. UPDATE 2004/06/20: There is a heavily tracked story today (here) about an article in the British Guardian citing a senior US intelligence official who also believed that Al Queda may be attempting to influence the US election.

EARLIER UPDATE 2004/06/22 10:30 AM: Terrorists have released a videotape of the beheading of South Korean hostage Kim Sun-il.
