Either we’re doing something right, or they’re just getting lazy

Recent news reports stated that insurgents had taken a US soldier hostage with the release of the information on an Islamic website.  The bad news: They got one of our guys.  The good news: It’s just Special Ops Cody, a popular action figure from Dragon Models, USA.

My favorite part:

“The photograph showed the figure against a black flag with white lettering reading, ‘God is great, there is no god but Allah.’ A U.S. military assault rifle was pointed at its head. It appears that ‘rifle’ was part of the plastic weaponry that came with the action figure.”

That means that some low-level insurgent/terrorist rookie’s job was to make a miniature flag to complete the illusion.  Is there an Islamic version of Jackass that I don’t know about, or are these just bored extremist Art School Students?
