I felt awful when I heard about the kidnapping of four Christian Peacemakers Team (CPT) members in Iraq. CPT is just about the last foreign NGO still working in Iraq and they are the only foreign NGO I know of that does decent work in the region. I hope they are released soon and without harm.

I don't know anything about the German woman who was kidnapped along with her driver in Iraq, but I hope they are not harmed and are let go soon as well.

And finally, the victims "we" are not supposed to care about, the ones with no names: A group of Iranian pilgrims were also abducted in southern Iraq, and while the two women among them were released, the four men are still with their abductors.
