Islamic Militants Get Their Gawker On

After yesterday’s news that the Bush family’s 18-year-old cat India passed away, Islamic militants began posting sarcastic comments on an extremist web site.

The website, which normally focuses on official statements released by al-Qaida and other militants, today features commenters poking fun at the First Lady’s press release. One commenter, known as Dark-Side, sarcastically offered condolences for the cat, posting “For God’s sake, could someone tell us where the wake is to be held?” Another commenter mockingly worried that India’s death would disrupt Arab-U.S. relations: “This is not the right time to die. It is a dilemma for the Arab leaders at this time because they are busy and have to leave the region to offer condolences.” [AP]
