Aid Worker Held Hostage in Iraq Believed to Be Dead

Videotape Appears to Show Murder


BAGHDAD (Nov. 16) -- Al-Jazeera television said Tuesday it received a videotape showing the slaying of a woman believed to be hostage aid worker Margaret Hassan. Hassan's family in London said they believed the longtime director of CARE in Iraq was dead.


How well do President Bush, Prime Minister Blair, and Vice President Cheney sleep at night?

Yes, it IS their fault this woman is dead. This is the cost of "pre-emptive" war. Margaret Hassan’s work, and her life, were violently pre-empted, as a direct result of Mr. Bush’s lust to establish a US presence in the oil fields of the Middle East. Bush, Cheney, and Blair killed this woman as surely as if they held the gun that shot her in the back of the head.

Yes, Mr. Bush. The WRONG war. In the WRONG country. At the WRONG time. You WILL be judged for this. Perhaps not by the sheep who re-elected you. Perhaps not even by history. But surely by the God you claim is on your side…

"...the one who does not know and does things deserving punishment will be beaten with few blows. From everyone who has been given much, much will be demanded; and from the one who has been entrusted with much, much more will be asked."  Luke 12:48 



  1. You know I'm with you on this Lisa.  

    There is a site that I think you may find interesting.  It's a journal called Baghdad Burning and is written by a young Iraqi girl.  It gives some insight into how she and her family are coping.



  2. What can I say?  Bush is a murderer, what is sad, so sad is the sheep who follow him.  I still say, it is okay for America (the whiter people) to kill the Iraqis (the darker people) because America does not see them as human.  They are subhuman, thus, unworthy to live in America’s white world.  Think it is far fetched?  Keeping eating the popcorn and watch the viewing.

  3. All I can say is what goes around comes around. Hopefully sooner rather than later. Unfortunately we've wasted all the good will we used to have and we're going to need it to accomplish anything good. :-( You can only do so much with bullets. Probably the least useful things in the world.

  4. Ummm...I don't believe in a vengeful god but I do believe that we all get what we deserve eventually. However, it's hard for me to lust for it even in my anger. But, I hear you and I hope you are okay. It is truly a sad thing. This woman dedicated herself to helping others only to be used as a pawn in such a gruesome way. So very sad. All of it. :-) ---Robbie

  5. I got sick to my stomach when I heard
    about this.  So senseless.  That woman
    did so much good in that country.  I cannot
    believe they would kill her like that.  Well,
    yes...I can.  Barbarians, murderers.  What
    more can we expect?  And now all this
    news coverage about one of our soldiers
    murdering a wounded Iraqi.  I swear, this
    war gets worse every single day.

  6. Ummm....I don't agree with you on this one.  Regardless of the situation or the rights or wrongs of our presence in Iraq, to murder a humanitarian worker is a violation of the basic principles of human rights, which as a mark of basic human decency should be maintained even, and most especially, during war.  I'm not saying we don't have a lot to answer for.  But the responsibility for Mrs. Hassan's murder lies with the people who pulled the trigger.  

    And makes me think that maybe we ARE right to be there.

  7. I feel sad and sorry for this woman's family.  

  8. God doesn't punish...Satan does...

    I believe that  the evil axis (Bush Cheney, Blair) are responsible though.

    I can't really even think beyond that....I watch the news and read the reports and my mind is in so much pain I can barely bring myself to consider the consequences of Bush as President.....I am waiting for WWIII....actually expecting it....

    Instead I've been hiding within the mundane and the humorous as much as possible this past week...I'm afraid to think.

  9. I am totally appalled by the savagery displayed in this war.

  10. I remember when I first saw this particular photo on the front page of the paper a couple of weeks ago.  I was sickened at her suffering and can not imagine the terror she endured.  Seeing the news of her execution yesterday was overwhelming.   Our administration will figure out a way to just calculate her into the "cost of war".  The entire situation is unconscienable.

  11.  This womans death is at the hands of the cowardly bastartds that killed her.  No one else. Bush did not send her there. Bush did not capture her.  Are the ones who did this just some pawn in the ALMIGHTY Bushes game? So in your world the US Army troops slaughterd in Somalia need to blame Bill Clinton directly? He sent them there. He refused the calls for help from the General in charge(who resined a lifes work over the matter instead of remaining under Clintons orders).  She wasnt an American. She wasnt killed by an American. She was a very brave volunteer doing some thing she thought was worth while.  Right now I would rather have her killers droped shipped to Blanchard oklahoma than to have a winning lotto tickett. Here I wouldnt blame someone else but would without blinking send these SOB"s to their makers. Blame should be placed. But blame should be placed on the killers. P.S. if you still insist on blaming Bush  shouldnt we also blame every each individual in congress who voted in favor of the USA going over there, because Bush did go with the the blessing of the US congress. (Kerry voted for ).

  12. I find it interesting that you want God to deal with Bush on this, but dont mention the reckoning for the actuall killers.

  13. I don't think that we forget about the actuall killers but we know that all of this has come to pass because of Bush and dispite what he says I know that the public can't be so ignorant to believe anything different about Bush. This hurts my heart and I never even met this women. It is only a matter of time before terrorists are back here in America reaking havic. It is sad and I know that God is watching so Bush's days are numbered just as the actuall killers.
