Karma Is A Beautiful Thing - UPDATED

Posted with minimal comments, because the story pretty much speaks for itself.

Suicide Bomb Instructor Accidentally Kills Pupils
A group of Sunni militants attending a suicide bombing training class at a camp north of Baghdad were killed on Monday when their commander unwittingly conducted a demonstration with a belt that was packed with explosives, army and police officials said.
I guess there's no Iraqi equivalent of "There's no such thing as an unloaded gun" ("There's no such thing as an unarmed suicide vest...?")
The militants belonged to a group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS...
Who cares what group they belonged to. All that matters is that they are splattered all over the dungheap that passes for a village in that God-forsaken part of the world.
Twenty-two ISIS members were killed, and 15 were wounded, in the explosion at the camp, which is in a farming area in the northeastern province of Samara, according to the police and army officials. Stores of other explosive devices and heavy weapons were also kept there, the officials said.

Eight militants were arrested when they tried to escape, the officials said.
Too bad they survived. With any luck they won't last long in the tender clutches of the Iraqi government. Just please don't let the obama administration take control of them. They'll be treated like victims and given free health insurance, food stamps, unemployment benefits, and more.
... Iraq is developing a plan, with help from the United States, that would have Sunni tribes take the lead in ending the standoff with ISIS in Falluja, with the Iraqi Army in support, a senior State Department official told Congress last week.
Yeah, right... put money on that...
