Christian Peacemakers Ungrateful, Blame Rescuers
John Stevenson collects statements made by the Christian Peacemaker Teams after this morning’s daring rescue by Coalition military personnel from Islamist terrorists who had already murdered one of their fellows.
Their press release does not even mention, let alone thank, the men who risked their lives for their rescue, noting merely their “joy” that their comrades “have been safely released.” Moreover, they state that, the men who were captured, “knew that their only protection was in the power of the love of God and of their Iraqi and international co-workers. We believe that 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.”
It turns out, those very occupiers, not Iraqi or international co-workers, saved their asses. And the terrorists who those men are there fighting did the kidnapping and murdered Tom Fox. I suspect they wouldn’t like the interrogation techniques that led to the intel that made their rescue possible, and may be freeing other hostages as we speak, either.
I would quote Colonel Jessup. But why bother?
Update: Richard at Hyscience dubs the CPTs “idiots who purposefully put their own naive arses on the line to essentially give aid and comfort, and provide propaganda, for the Islamist fascists that are murdering innocent Iraqis and blowing up our men and women.” That about sums it up.
