49 Virgins and Lots of Donuts w/ Video

Who's sorry now?

The students? The media? The college? The Bush Administration? Nah. Here's more about the war on terror gone awry...via RawStory

Five students at C.W. Post College in Brookville, NY have been fired from their resident assistant jobs for distributing a hostage-demand video spoof. In the clip below, four of the five students can be seen in ski masks, making demands for the release of their toy duck hostage.

Some found the video to be culturally insensitive. College Provost Joeseph Shenker says, "I think the tape was an insult to the victims and families involved in hostage situations." The students have filed a $2.5 million lawsuit against the college and 3 staff members. A judge issued a temporary restraining order on Friday, preventing the college from taking further disciplinary action against the students.
