Marines shoot insurgent who was ‘playing dead’

The US military says Marines in Fallujah have shot and killed an insurgent who engaged them as he was faking being dead, a week after footage of a marine killing an apparently unarmed and wounded Iraqi caused a stir in the region.

“Marines from the 1st Marine Division shot and killed an insurgent who while faking dead opened fire on the marines who were conducting a security and clearing patrol through the streets,” a military statement said.

No, say it ain’t so–the terrorists aren’t playing by the rules of war? I’m shocked, shocked I tell you. *SNORT*

So when does our guy get off the hook for the same thing?
