OOPS! Al-Qaeda linked ISIS militants in Syria accidentally behead an FSA rebel

Militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) have publicly displayed what they claim was the decapitated head of an Iraqi Shiite pro-regime militiaman. They were wrong.

Daily Star (h/t Kevin C)  Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said that while ISIS militants were responsible for the grisly incident, they had in fact killed an anti-regime rebel from an Islamist militia. Pro-opposition sources claimed that he was from the Ahrar al-Sham network of rebels, and had in fact been wounded in battle. One Salafist commentator maintained that his head remained in the possession of ISIS.

And here we have the talking head before it was detached from its body. Listening to this, I think the beheaders did everyone a favor.
