Is There Anything We Can't Blame Bush For?

Apparently not. Earlier this week four individuals were taken hostage by the heretofore unknown terrorist group “The Swords of Righteousness Brigade”, all four belonged to a anti-war group called the "Christian Peacemaker Teams", a group that blames American foreign policy for 9/11, who served as human shields earlier in the war and who ran an "Adopt-a-Detainee" program for terrorist suspects held at Gitmo, and this group places the blame at the feet of President Bush.

Here's a little snipet from their official statement:

"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. We were the first people to publicly denounce the torture of Iraqi people at the hands of U.S. forces, long before the western media admitted what was happening at Abu Ghraib. We are some of the few internationals left in Iraq who are telling the truth about what is happening to the Iraqi people We hope that we can continue to do this work and we pray for the speedy release of our beloved teammates."

So it seems to me that the terrorists should love the CPT people and yet it appears they don't. Hmmm...go figure.
