The Islamic Army of Iraq claimed Ronald Allen Schulz, an American adviser, had been killed.
The video did not show the face of the victim, however, and it was impossible to identify him conclusively. The victim was kneeling with his back to the camera, with his hands tied behind his back and blindfolded with an Arab headdress when he was shot.
The videotaped killing showed the man being shot as he kneeled in an open, empty area of dirt. The video also showed Schulz's identity card.

Execution video of Ronald Allen Schulz
On Fox Now and the reporter said it was too brutal to watch. I'd have evesdroped without a warrant, surveyed, waterboarded, or degraded anyone who I thought had information that would have helped save this guy. It's a brutal thing for the family to have on TV but I wonder if we need to show it for people to understand the people we fight.
