Hostages rescued in Iraq

BREITBART.COM - Three Christian Activists Rescued in Iraq: "U.S. and British troops Thursday freed three Christian peace activists in rural Iraq without firing a shot, ending a four-month hostage drama in which an American among the group was shot to death and dumped on a Baghdad street.

Maj. Gen. Rick Lynch, the U.S. military spokesman, said the hostages were being held by a 'kidnapping cell,' and the operation to free the captives was based on information from a man captured by U.S. forces only three hours earlier.

No kidnappers were present when the troops broke into a house in western Baghdad. The captives' hands were tied, Lynch said.

Other Americans taken hostage in Iraq and killed in addition to Fox were Ronald Schulz, 40, an industrial electrician from Anchorage, Alaska; Jack Hensley, 48, a civil engineer from Marietta, Ga.; Eugene "Jack" Armstrong, 52, formerly of Hillsdale, Mich.; and Nicholas Berg, 26, a businessman from West Chester, Pa.

Still missing is Jill Carroll, a freelance writer for The Christian Science Monitor who was kidnapped Jan. 7 in Baghdad. She has appeared in three videotapes delivered by her kidnappers to Arab satellite television stations.

The last hostage to be freed in a military operation was Douglas Wood, an Australian rescued in west Baghdad by U.S. and Iraqi forces on June 15 after 47 days in captivity."

We don't negotiate with terrorists, we just kill them and take back our people. These people were Christians looking into 'human rights violations' for the arabs, and they were nicely captured, and some of them beheaded.

The group, the Loney Family, issued a statment later. Do they thank there rescuers? No. Rather, they pretty much slap them in the face, by accusing them of violating human rights. As such, more christians need to go over there, and be vigilantees, hawkishly looking for the mistreatment of Iraqis.

What a bunch of nuts...

That statement really stinks.

They complain about Iraqis being illegally detained and yet the resue would presumably not have happened without the information provided by one of those detainees.

God Bless

Yes it does. Also, there are reports of them being upset at be rescued 'in a violent manner'. They seem to innocently be forgetting that the terrorists tortured and murdered there friend, John Fox.
