More on those Canadians in Iraq

It turns out the four men who were abducted on Saturday (two of them were Canadian) are peace activists whose organization, Christian Peacemaker Teams, have been virulently anti-war from the very beginning.

After doing a little digging, Misha informs us of the statement made by Christian Peacemaker Teams on their website:

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.

Yeesh, talk about transference. The four hostages would not be in this situation if they had decided not to go to Iraq. They would not be in the situation if Christian Peacemaker Teams did not send them there. They definitely would not be in this situation if those lunatic islamofascists had not kidnapped them.

But it is so much easier to blame George W. Bush and Tony Blair, isn't it?
