It's actually a doll that is made by Dragon Action Figures.

That link will bring up a picture of a doll produced by them. The most noticable things are the flak jacket, which has a piped outer layer which the US currently does not use, and as you can see the flak jacket matches the doll's exactly, as does the gun pointed at "captive's head". This is merely a kid playing a game.

Still, technically speaking, the message from the terrorists remains chilling -- they will behead the American soldier if their demands are not met within 72 hours.

Leaving out the word "doll" was a typo I should expect.

Great scoop ... of what, I'm not sure.
