Just when you thought America was The Great Satan after all...

...it appears a few Iraqis are still running loose enough to meet our match:

"CAIRO (AP) -- A video posted Tuesday on an Islamic militant Web site showed the beheading of an American civilian in Iraq, and said the execution was carried out by an al-Qaeda affiliated group to avenge the abuse of Iraqi prisoners..."

The point? Evil doesn't take sides, and at least we as a nation, founded on Judeo-Christian principles, show genuine remorse and a desire to repair a situation that got way out of hand. Meanwhile, has the Red Cross had any luck getting Islamic nations to refrain from similar cruelties?

Nah, didn't think so.
