What's Wrong With This Picture?

British-led forces rescued three Christian peace activists from four months in captivity on Thursday after finding them tied up in a house in western Baghdad two weeks after an American colleague was killed.

No shots were fired and the kidnappers had fled.
That's odd. That sounds more like a pick-up than a rescue.
"It's great to be free," rescued British hostage Norman Kember, 74, said after British and other forces freed him and Canadian colleagues Jim Loney, 41, and Harmeet Sooden, 32.

The tortured body of fellow activist, American Tom Fox, was found dumped in the capital two weeks ago.

A British embassy official said the three men were in "good shape" in the embassy. Kember was "happy and relaxing."
Three men (one of them 74 years old!) are held for 4 months(!) and are released in "good shape," and "happy and relaxing," yet their colleague was shot, tortured and dumped in the street like a dog?

Something's wrong with this picture.
"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.
That says something about the men who were kidnapped and may explain why they were not harmed. But, was the fourth tortured and killed arbitrarily? It doesn't make sense.
Previous hostages, including Briton Kenneth Bigley in 2004, have been beheaded on video by al Qaeda-linked groups within weeks of their capture once demands have not been met.
These kidnappings do not make sense together. Why would some hostages be released unharmed and others tortured and mutilated to death?

Something is terribly wrong with this picture.

UPDATE 3/25/06: this just in from The Age

It emerged that about 50 soldiers led by the British SAS, as well as American and Canadian special forces, entered the kidnap building at dawn.

A deal had been struck with a man detained the previous night who was one of the leaders of the kidnappers. He was allowed a telephone call to warn his henchmen to leave the house. [!!!]

When the troops moved in and found the prisoners alive, they also let him go as promised.
Draw your own conclusions.

Yes qrswave, u're absolutely right for ur suspicions; that's why I so highly recommend Judicial-inc.biz website for fullest most incisive expo. The Birchers at JBS.org have an outstanding analysis, irrefutable as far as it goes (though Birchers stop short of identifying the Jews, unfortunately).

The accomplices to Jews are the "Sadduceans" of modern day, of course, Council on Foreign Relations in turn directing such as Falwell, Robertson, et al. But these and Jews can well be identified and then targetted as foremost SUBJECTIVISTS and proponents of fraud, esp. that crux essential, the Federal Reserve Bank counterfeiting fraud.

We must work to RATIONALIZE our culture(s), in the West, this rationalization removing and exposing the "Judeo-Christians" (see Whtt.org for fullest expo.).

Keep up ur tremendous efforts of info, journalism, analysis, and journalism, so effectively counter-acting the Jews-media lies and propaganda. Thor

It means the money was paid, and the phone rang telling them where they can pickup the cargo, i mean hostages.

According to the corporate terrorists only the lives of white people count. That is how they justify celebrating the murdering of 1000s of children, because a few white people were found alive.

tri, I really don't think they care whether brown or white people die.

They care about no one except their privileged selves, who they themselves privilege by manipulating the law.

True,
The corporate terrorists will kill pretty much anyone for a few bucks. I suppose it is more like the MSM (and probably kos too) celebrating the return of a few white people, while so many die.
