Bodies of 2 missing hostages recovered in Iraq
WASHINGTON — The FBI confirmed Monday that the bodies of two Americans who were taken hostage more than a year ago in Iraq have been found there.
The dead were identified as Ronald Withrow of Roaring Springs, Texas, and John Roy Young, of Kansas City, Mo.
Young was one of five security guards working for Crescent Security Group who were taken hostage Nov. 16, 2006 when the convoy they were guarding was stopped at a fake checkpoint in southern Iraq.
The fingers of the four other Crescent Security guards seized with Young also were delivered to U.S authorities earlier this year. Those guards are Jonathan Cote, of Gainesville, Fla.; Joshua Munns, of Redding,Calif.; Paul Johnson Reuben, of Buffalo, Minn.; and Bert Nussbaumer of Vienna, Austria.
This is most definitely a sad and tragic story and my heart goes out to the families. Having said that though, I am sick and tired of the never-ending propaganda.
Why is it, that when we do it to them, it is called 'capturing and detaining'? Yet, when they do it to us, it is called 'kidnapping and holding hostage'?
