While there is likely to be human tragedy, I suspect that the kidnapping may give the left pause to contemplate their belief that the "terrorists" are really polite and well motivated people who are morally opposed to the Coalition invasion of Iraq.

Hopefully, the left will finally realize that terrorists have no morals and don't place any value on the life of non-Muslims or even Muslims who are of the wrong political beliefs.

From another article a description of this group......
In a statement, Christian Peacemaker Teams said it strongly opposed the U.S. invasion of Iraq and blamed the kidnapping on coalition forces.

``We are angry because what has happened to our teammates is the result of the actions of the U.S. and U.K. government due to the illegal attack on Iraq and the continuing occupation and oppression of its people,'' the group said.

Christian Peacemaker Teams does not consider itself a fundamentalist organization, a spokeswoman said.

``We are very strict about this: We do not do any evangelism, we are not missionaries,'' Jessica Phillips told The Associated Press in Chicago. ``Our interest is to bring an end to the violence and destruction of civilian life in Iraq.''

The group's first activists went to Iraq in 2002, six months before the U.S.-led invasion, Phillips said, adding that a main mission since the invasion has been documenting alleged human rights abuses by U.S. forces.
