Liberation or Ransom
The liberation of the three kidnapped westerners (Norman Kimber and his two Canadian colleagues) in Iraq remained vague.
The Iraqi official sources stated that the kidnapers have been arrested however the MNF in Iraq denied any arrest.
It is good that the kidnapped men are now free.
The operation to rescue them seems to be nothing other than a paid ransom and the concerned forces faked an operation to lift the morals and to cover the real agreement.
We are happy for the freed men and hope that the operation was real which seems not to be so.
