I'm Gonna Wait 'Til it Comes Out on Video

Sorry to use so crude a title, but at this point the period between the kidnapping and the release of the beheading video is just a formality.

For those of you who have no clue what I'm talking about, Margaret Hassan, the director of CARE International's Iraq operation has been taken hostage. British-born Hassan was abducted at 7:30 this morning. Hassan has been helping the people of Iraq for 25 years.

The most galling thing about this is that Hassan has devoted her adult life to Iraq. That's not to say that the lives of the abductees working for profit were worth less, but it's just such a shame when such a generous woman falls victim to these murderous thugs.

Guess we'll just wait to hear about her death. How much more frustration can we take?
