Saudi Al Qua’eda beheaded Paul Johnson, the kidnapped American contractor, as they had threatened to do if the Saudi government didn’t give into their demands and release prisoners.

The Saudis subsequently killed Abdulaziz al-Muqrin, the local Al Qua’eda leader in a shootout. In the long run, this – and the fact that the governments of both the U.S. and Saudi Arabia refused to play the terrorists’ game – will save a lot of innocent lives.

But tonight, one innocent life was lost, and I’m sure that’s precious little consolation to Paul Johnson’s family.

Somehow, even death seems too good for the terrorist bastards. Poetic justice only exists in the movies; in real life, people never seem to get what they deserve.
