Joining the Enemy

American Thinker has a long column about how horribly the "insurgents" treated a French journalist who was kidnapped for ransom. The last paragraph nails the way journalists have joined the enemy in the way they regard the terrorists:
Why no outcry from the ICRC, Amnesty International, and all the rest? Precisely because they have adopted the logic of the insurgency. El Hadji subjecting a woman to cruel and inhuman punishment is not their problem. However…if, instead of paying him tens of millions for his trouble, someone grabbed him by the scruff of the neck and locked him up in Guantanomo, he would magically become an innocent victim, sanitized, sanctified, and endowed with new powers to take us hostage…en masse!

That is worth repeating -- if he were captured and sent to Gitmo he would magically become an innocent victim.
