Norman Kember is Thankful to Be Free
Peace Activist Norman Kember has given an interview to BBC. Kember is one classy peace activist. Norman was on eof the four CPT hostages. Kember also speaks well of Tom Fox who was murdered by the terrorists who held them.
Via BBC :Peace campaigner Norman Kember has given an emotional account of his ordeal as a hostage in Iraq. Mr Kember, 74, of Pinner in north west London, was held in Baghdad for four months before his rescue on 23 March. American peace worker Tom Fox, 54, was killed weeks before the rescue. When asked about his fellow hostage, Mr Kember said he was a "remarkable man". His voice breaking with emotion, he spoke of the moment his rescuers arrived. "We had this sort of futon thing on the floor, and we were lying there, and suddenly we heard noise outside and then somebody calling out and then the breaking of glass and then up the stairs came these SAS gents," he said. "It's unbelievable because it was so sudden and first of all, because they were British, they wanted to know if 'Mr Kember' was there, and I said, 'Yes' and then they said, because I was the person at that stage chained to the door, 'This is a bolt-cutter job,' so they went down and cut the padlock and released me." Mr Kember said he "continues to thank" his rescuers. "They were brave. I disagree with their profession, but it is ironic isn't it - you go as a peace activist and you are rescued by the SAS, which is perhaps the most violent of all the British forces. "Anyway I am grateful to them. I met one of them by chance on the way out of Baghdad and he was quite happy to chat to me and I was happy to chat to him."We are glad you are safe too Mr. Kember.

Violence comeasurate to the threat. I'm only sorry they didn't get the opportunity to kill their captors, a job they do efficiently and expediently.

Of course he gave no word about how violent the terrorists are that he loves so much. Classy my ass; he's a piece of shit liberal, and I'm sorry he didn't get the chop.

I truly think he is grateful and it might even have changed his angle on the use of violence.
