Al-Jazeera Airs Prelude to Head Hackers Anonymous?

The captors say the men are spies working as peace activists

"How much longer have we got?"
Arab satellite channel Al-Jazeera [surprise!] has broadcast a video made by a previously unknown militant group of four human rights activists taken hostage in Iraq.
Think this is an honest resistance? A patriotic response to invasion of 'their country'?!

Update: I was correct in my assumption (see below) that this Norman Kember was actually opposed to the war in Iraq. (I wonder if this will hold any sway with those noble patriotic head choppers?). Well I'll sayone thing about Norman, he's got balls. Apparently he was is Iraq to "show solidarity" with the Iraqi people, his friend has said.

    Maybe if they whack a couple of "human rights activists" heads Amnesty International will get the hint these aren't normal folks.

    Not with Irene Khan running the show. She's the first woman, the first Asian and the first Muslim to guide the world’s largest human rights organization.

    And perhaps unsurprisingly her biggest bugbear is not Iran, or Sudan, or China, no, her biggest bug bear is ...Guantanmo Bay. Of course... She compare's it with Gulag.

    Only difference being that in Gulag hundreds of thousands of INNOCENT people were EXECUTED. Whereas in Guantanmo bay we have TERRORISTS. Of course none have been executed. But there has been brutal torture via playing loud rock music apparently...

    Ehmmm, aren't most of the prisoners there without fair trial?

    Therefore innocent?

    LOL Falcon. Yes that's right, all the terrorists at Guatanamo are innocent. Let's ignore all the thousands of inncoents in Sudan getting slaughtered.

    Let's focus on America holding a few hundred people in cramped conditions. Giving them 3 square meals a day. They are in better health now than they have ever been. On average Guantanmo bay inmates have put on 11lbs, since they are eating properly. But lets focus on America and ignore the rest of the world.
