Taliban Justice for Bleeding Heart Journo

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.

I am so terrified for her that I can barely...yawn.

She's afraid she'll lose her head. Not like she was really using it all that much.

upon her release (and I hope she is released) we will hear about how she really got to know them and understand their point.

which is why i couldn't care less about her release. a better use of her wasted life will be to serve as an undeniable reality of the people she thought she could embrace.

The reason they will release her is that they can't stand to listen to her anymore than we can.
