Terrorists who run from real soldiers don't hesitate to blow up kids in Iraq, poison girls in Afghanistan, and behead helpless captives in the Philippines. The long security lines at airports are good places to remember the orphans of 9/11.

ZAMBOANGA, PHILIPPINES - Islamic militants beheaded a retired Christian carpenter abducted nearly two months ago in the southern Philippines, police said Monday.
The 61-year-old was kidnapped April 21 on the island of Basilan by a kidnap gang believed allied with the Abu Sayyaf group, a small group of self-styled Islamic militants blamed for the country's worst terrorist attacks in recent years.
