Christian Peacemaker ingrates

I mentioned in a prior post how the "Christian" anti-war activists who were rescued by coalition forces in Iraq still referred to their liberators as "illegal occupiers" in Iraq. That's right, the brave forces who risked their lives to free these ingrates from the clutches of bloodthirsty Islamofascists who had already tortured and killed one of their colleagues (Tom Fox) are still denigrated...despite saving their worthless hides.

At Freedom Folks' blog, they noted how the "Christian" Peacemakers kept referring to their "release" instead of their "rescue." WTF?

"Release" implies that their captors willingly let them go, whereas "rescue" implies that the captors were not willing to let them go but were unable to stop them from doing so because of efforts made on behalf of the captives. For the "Christian" Peacemakers to fail to acknowledge this effort, even if on a grotesque subconscious level, is appalling. Are they suffering from Stockholm Syndrome or something?

I'm not the only one who feels that way, as the "Christian" Peacemakers' phone lines have been flooded with angry callers with sentiments identical to mine. It wasn't until they began receiving these phone calls that they decided amend their statement: they were so "overwhelmed" and "overjoyed" by their release that they "forgot" to thank their liberators. It's easy to be forgetful while you still have your head intact on your shoulders, instead of having it sawed off with a big dull steak knife while you're alive to experience it!

Do I have permission to question their patriotism now?
