Children Used as Props in Car Bombing

If any reasonable person needed another reason to doubt the humanity of Islamist terrorists, this report provides it:
Insurgents in Iraq detonated an explosives-rigged vehicle with two children in the back seat after US soldiers let it through a Baghdad checkpoint over the weekend, a senior US military official said Tuesday.
The vehicle was stopped at the checkpoint but was allowed through when soldiers saw the children in the back, said Major General Michael Barbero of the Pentagon's Joint Staff.

"Children in the back seat lowered suspicion. We let it move through. They parked the vehicle, and the adults ran out and detonated it with the children in the back," Barbero said.
These are the animals to whom the irresponsible idiots on the Left (tautology alert) demand that we surrender.
