Ilario Pantono threatened

From WorldNetDaily:

The FBI is investigating threats against 2nd Lt. Ilario Pantano, the Marine charged with premeditated murder in the killing of two Iraqi insurgents last April.

A website, using an address nearly identical to one launched by the officer's family, posted photographs depicting Pantano beheaded by a hooded jihadist, according to the officer's lawyer, Charles Gittins.

Other photographs on the hostile site, defendthedefenders.org, have been edited to depict Pantano in an electric chair.

Pantano took the threats seriously and reported them to local law enforcement and the FBI in Wilmington, N.C., where he lives with his wife and two children, the Washington Times reported.

Retired Marines are providing a security watch at the family's home as Pantano awaits a March hearing.

The URL mention in the article as the hostile site, is actually the original site put up by Pantano's mother. I have no idea what the URL of the hostile site is and wouldn't post it if I knew.

It's a shame that one of our marines has to continue to fight the war even after he's back home, and that his own “superiors” are aiding the enemy.
