Talk About Ungrateful – Michelle Malkin
Our troops teamed with British forces to rescue three left-wing, anti-war activists kidnapped by terrorists in Iraq. Those freed were Canadians James Loney, 41, and Harmeet Singh Sooden, 32; and Briton Norman Kember, 74. The men, who were members of the Chicago-based Christian Peacemaker Teams, were kidnapped on Nov. 26 along with their American colleague, Tom Fox, 54, whose body was found earlier this month.
Reader Jen M. took at look at the Christian Peacemaker Teams website for the group’s statement on the rescue and she e-mailed me her observations:
Not once do they thank or even reference the fact that a Special Forces team rescued these guys. In fact, the only reference to military at all is blaming them for the kidnapping in the first place. Nice! Also on their home page is a long statement about how terribly treated terrorists are when detained by evil soldiers.
Jay @ Stop The ACLU points out:
Now the group adds insult to ingratitude. Not only are they ungrateful, they place the blame for their kidnapping on the very coalition that rescued them. Unbelievable!
“We believe the illegal occupation of Iraq by multinational forces is the root cause of the insecurity which led to this kidnapping and so much pain and suffering in Iraq today. The occupation must end,” the co-chairman of CPT Doug Pritchard told a news conference in Toronto.
I have an idea… send ’em back and sit their lily-white Western-faced asses in the middle of an intersection in Sadr City.
Remember: There can be no peace with out freedom. Iraq was not at peace under Saddam.
