BODY OF BEHEADED AMERICAN FOUND

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia \’e2\’80\rdblquote The body of American hostage Paul M. Johnson Jr. (search), apparently beheaded by an Al Qaeda-linked Saudi militant group, was found Friday just outside the Saudi Arabian capital.

The discovery came soon after a Web site posted pictures of his death.

Side A

Dammit! Those barbarian Al-Qaeda! Cutting the heads off of innocent hostages!

US CAPTIVE EXECUTED IN SAUDI ARABIA

The American defence worker captured in Saudi Arabia last week has been killed after a 72-hour deadline for the Saudi government to release al-Qaida prisoners passed.

Johnson was seized last weekend by Saudi dissidents who promised to kill him by Friday if the kingdom did not release its al-Qaida prisoners.

Side B

Wow. Instead it’s a strike at the US military industrial complex by brave dissidents!
