Christian Peacemaker Teams

By now, we have seen the video of the Christian Peacemaker Team that was kidnapped by terrorists in Iraq. It is interesting that instead of putting the blame on the terrorists, this group is blaming the US and the UK. The web site says

"We are angry because what has happened to our teammates is the result of the actions of the U.S. and U.K. governments due to the illegal attack on Iraq and the continuing occupation and oppression of its people. Christian Peacemaker Teams (CPT) has worked for the rights of Iraqi prisoners who have been illegally detained and abused by the U.S. government."

It is amazing that people give these terrorist so many breaks!
