Hat tip to big brother Tom on this one....a delicious little story.
Seems Beverly Giesbrecht, a Canadian journalist with clear liberal leanings, found the world's response to 9-11 so disheartening that she changed her name to "Khadija Abdul Qahaar" and converted to Islam. Her new journalistic mission was to give voice to coverage of the Islamic world not provided in Western media.
Last summer she decided it would be a good idea to travel to Waziristan to cover the war in Afghanistan. Once there, the Taliban decided it would be a good idea to kidnap her. They are threatening to behead her if Canada doesn't come up with $2M.
As a human being, I hope she is released unharmed. But if she is, I fear we'll be treated to the standard liberal tripe about how the West has pushed the Taliban to such extremes.
