Oops: Suicide Bomber Instuctor Accidentally Blows Up 22 Students in Iraq
If a suicide bomber gets 72 virgin maidens in paradise when they die, what does a suicide bomb instructor get for blowing up 22 suicide bomber trainees?
He was a brilliant recruiter but his technical skills needed work.
A suicide bomber instructor in Samara, Iraq accidentally blew up twenty-two students during a demonstration.
The New York Times reported:
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.
Eight militants were arrested when they tried to escape, the officials said.
The militant who was conducting the training was not identified by name, but he was described by an Iraqi Army officer as a prolific recruiter who was “able to kill the bad guys for once.”
Since the guy was such a prolific recruiter of potential murderers of the innocent and effective suicide bomber; I’m wondering where we can get more of him… anyone?
