Moore's "Minutemen" Murder Iraqi To Use As Bait

Iraqi terrorist insurgents, whom depraved propagandist and land whale Michael Moore has referred to as "Minutemen", murdered an Iraqi civilian to use as bait in a vehicle rigged with explosives.

According to a CENTCOM news release, such acts are a common tactic used by the terrorist insurgency to lure victims close to rigged vehicles:
In other combat operations around east Baghdad, an Iraqi Police patrol discovered a suspicious vehicle parked along a road around 6:30 a.m. The IPs, believing the sedan might be a car bomb, did not approach the car but were able to observe from a safe distance that there was a dead body inside.

The IPs were concerned that a terrorist had placed the body in the car as bait, which is sometimes used as a terrorist ploy to bring potential targets closer to a vehicle before detonation in order to maximize casualties.

In this case, the IPs believed, the bait was being used to kill first responders who would approach the body in the car.

The police secured the area to prevent potential injury to pedestrians and commuters. An explosive ordnance disposal team was called to the scene. As the vehicle was being examined by remote methods, explosives inside the car detonated.

There were no casualties.
I'm reporting this story on the off-chance that our loyal, unbiased, non-partisan mainstream media completely ignore it.
