Hostages Freed

A joint U.S.-Iraqi special forces operation has freed three hostages from the Christian Peacemaker Teams, including Canadians James Loney and Harmeet Singh Sooden.

Let that be a lesson to pacifists in war zones: only force overcomes force.

UPDATE: Kathy Shaidle reports that the CPT can't express one word of thanks to the men who put their lives on the line to free them. As usual, she cuts right to the heart of the matter:

If these three had been true to their principles, they would have refused to accompany their "evil" military rescuers. So much for pacifism.

How true.
