I used to watch TV news and yell at the box. Now I jump up from the couch, sit at the computer and begin to type laughing maniacally saying "Wait until they read this." It's more fun than squashing tadpoles

Aid Workers Freed by Military They Despise

US Forces have freed the Christian Aid Workers held hostage since November. These people were there in protest to the military action and to support the Iraqi people yet they were taken hostage by the very people they claimed to be sympathetic with. One of them , an American, was killed. One would think these folk may be grateful for their liberation by a military raid, but their organization makes no mention of the military in their press release.

Three Christian peace activists kidnapped last year in Iraq were freed Thursday in an early morning military operation, the British Embassy in Iraq announced.

The announcement came two weeks after the activists' colleague and fellow hostage, Tom Fox of Virginia, was shot to death and left on a Baghdad street.

The three men rescued Thursday -- two Canadians and a Briton -- were freed in a planned rescue operation by multi-national forces, a British Embassy spokesman said.

One would think the irony of their experiance would be a clue. Maybe, in the middle of the night one of the will wake up and acknowledge their ignorance.

Not only do they not mention the military FREEING the hostages, they keep using the term 'released'. These people were NOT 'released' They would have been tourtured and killed like Mr. Fox had the military not FREED them.

Liberals don't change their worldview just because of actual events or facts. They are above those kinds of things.
