Another disgusting story from Iraq

In Iraq, it’s apparently honorable to kill your father for cash.

Finally, after seven years of the family infighting, an order came down from the insurgent leadership to kill Mr. Ahmad. Late one night in June, Mr. Ahmad’s son entered his bedroom with an AK-47.

He described killing his father as the act of a hero.

It was also meant to be lucrative. He said the insurgents gave him $5,000 for the killing, money that he said his cousin — who by some accounts was a more active member of the insurgency and helped plan the murder — took from him.
