Funny, I Never Saw This At Gitmo

I guess if we treat “prisoners” like this then the euroappeasers will be ok with it

The kidnappers of BBC correspondent Alan Johnston have released a new video of him in which he is wearing what he says is an explosives vest.
…In the tape, posted on a website used by militants, Mr Johnston is seen wearing a device around his torso and attached to shoulder straps.
“The situation now is very serious. As you can see I have been dressed in what is an explosive belt, which the kidnappers say will be detonated if there was any attempt to storm this area,” he says.

Nice fellows, but of course it’s our fault that he’s being held

Mr Johnston was abducted by a group calling itself The Army of Islam.
A video was released on 1 June by the previously unknown radical Islamist group, in which the correspondent said he was in good health and was being treated well.*
The Army of Islam has demanded the release of Abu Qatada, a Palestinian-born Islamic cleric who is suspected of having close links with al-Qaeda and is held by the UK government as a threat to national security.

I really really hope these ‘negotiations’ in no way shape or form involve releasing Mr. Qatada.

In a statement, the (BBC) said: “It is very distressing for Alan’s family and colleagues to see him being threatened in this way.

How the hell do you think it makes Alan feel?
*”treated well” being defined as “getting to wear an un-exploded bomb vest”

    If he was in fact kidnapped in the first place. Alan does work for the BBC, after all.

    Well, as much as I dislike the Beeb I would not want to be in this poor fellow’s shoes, and as much as his pre-kidnap sympathies may lie in places where mine certainly don’t, I don’t think there’s any doubt that he got snatched.

    Jolly good! Let’s outfit all the Gitmo residents with explosive collars, what say?
