Insurgents to execute G.I. Joe doll

The insurgency is really struggling... they are now threatening to execute a G.I. Joe doll.

This photo (via Drudge), posted on an alleged insurgent web site, shows a soldier with an oddly tiny head and a plastic expression on his face. His captors point an M-16, to this point not a common insurgent weapon, at his head.

Nevertheless, the newswires reported the story credulously (cached on FreeRepublic, via PoliPundit; the wire services seem to have taken down the story without comment) that insurgents showed a captive American soldier on their web site. If it's bad news, it must be true!

UPDATE: I laughed out loud at this on Power Line.
