Virginia Native Son is Executed

Very sad news out of Iraq.

The dead body of Christian peace activist Tom Fox, 54, of Clearbrook, Va., was found, and the U.S. State Department confirmed the story to CNN this evening.

A video with only three of the hostages had been released earlier this week, and it was feared that Fox might have already been killed.

The Christian Science Monitor had earlier reported that all four men were members of the Christian Peacemaker Teams, a group formed by Mennonites, Brethren, and Quakers in the early 1980s with a core mission of "devot[ing] the same discipline and self-sacrifice to nonviolent peacemaking that armies devote to war."

The other men from the team were from Britain and Canada; and the tape released "was stamped with the date, "28 2 2006."

Already 2,307 Americans have died. How many more must die for a lie?

There is a special place in hell for those who have shed the blood of innocents; and yes, that includes the killers as well as our leaders who started this godless war.
