"Aid Workers" kidnapped in Iraq

You have to hand it to the mainstream media for consistent left wing bias. You really do. Their constant spin to the left takes every shape from parroting the liberal or democrat line ("..sought to discredit Joe Wilson..") to the more wacky (" ..soldiers targetting journalists.." - Eason Jordan). Like a student with perfect attendance, the bias is always there. The recent kidnappings of 4 western "aid workers" in Iraq provide an interesting example:

First you had the wire service and ABC coming out with headlines like "4 western aid workers kidnapped in Iraq". Here's the problem: they aren't aid workers, they are peace activists. Radically left, anti American peace activists in Iraq to "tell the truth" about what is going on there. But the MSM would have gotten away with their headline if the activist group didnt start spouting off and railing against the US and UK:

A PEACE group blamed the US and Britain yesterday for the abduction of four activists shown in an insurgent video, saying the kidnapping was the direct result of the occupation of Iraq....

“We are some of the few internationals left in Iraq who are telling the truth about what is happening to the Iraqi people,” the group said.


Aid workers now impossible as a headline, MSM turns to the even more scary: "wave of kidnappings resurges", as well as "4 western hostages". Many headlines were starting to read "peace activists kidnapped", but not the biggies here in the US. Nuh uh. These are westerners like you and me! And there is a wave of kidnappings (1) afoot!

ABC handily throws in a prominent link to a major story of some analysts "who predicted the troubles with the insurgency" predicting more doom and gloom to come.

I hate to say it, but if the peace activists are right and we are wrong, then why are they getting kidnapped? Aren't they telling the truth about Iraq? Sure its our fault they got kidnapped because they wouldn't be there if the US wasn't so evil (I guess) but shouldn't their wisdom and peacemaking skills be able to fix this obvious misunderstanding? Don't they have the answers to conflict resolution that we are too violent or stupid to understand?

I would hate for any US troops to be put at risk trying to rescue these anti American idiots.
