New Hostage Video Shows American Dean Sadek (Updated)

UPDATE: Al Jazeera:

Iraqi armed fighters have kidnapped an American who works as a manager at Baghdad airport.

In a videotape sent to Aljazeera, the captors identified themselves as the 1920 Revolution Brigades, a group which has previously seized foreigners working with US forces.

Novinite:
Arabic TV station Al-Jazeera has broadcast a videotape showing what it says is an American contractor of Lebanese origin held hostage in Iraq.

The balding, middle-aged man was shown carrying a US passport and an identification card in the name of Dean Sadek. He was sitting in front of a green wall.

Al-Jazeera did not air any audio but quoted Sadek as saying all businesses should stop cooperating with US authorities.

The Qatar-based television said the kidnapping was claimed in the name of the 1920 Revolution Brigade, a known insurgent group. The name refers to the uprising against the British after World War I.

It's not immediately clear when or where Sadek was kidnapped.

1 Why do we continue to have non-combatants over there while the fighting is still going on? It defies logic. We all know what is going to happen to this man.

4 Sadek is my x bro-inlaw that I have personally known since 1978. He is a kind, giving individual who loves his two sons dearly. I'm hoping by he being of lebanese descent that it would be in his favor. Besides being unemployed with the company he was with since June. Theres always hope. Why is he there. He is there to help the good people.Just the thought that women and children are being killed and the other horribles to them is astrocious. If he loses his life he would be one more of the heroes to win freedom for others. I am totally devasted everyday not knowing what will happen to him besides his immediate family and children. My prayers are with him and the others daily fighting for freedom of others.

5 WHY? WHENEVER AN AMERICAN GETS KIDNAPPED DO YOU ALL START FINDING EXCUSES FOR WHY HE WAS THERE? HE WAS NOT A SOILDER! HE WAS A PEACE WORKER! HE WAS AN ENGINEER! ETC ETC. ANYONE WHO GOES TO IRAQ TO SPY AND HAVE COVER AS AN ENGINEER ETC, WILL GET KIDNAPPED AND KILLED. WE DONT BELIEVE YOURE BULLSHIT. YOURE MEDIA IS TAKING YOU ALL FOR A RIDE AND YOUR JUST ENJOYING THE VIEW. I FEEL NOTHING FOR THE DEATHS OF THESE PEOPLE. I FEEL FOR THE INNOCENT MUSLIMS IN FALLUJAH AND MOYSAL AND ALL OF IRAQ WHO ARE BEING SYSTEMATICALLY MASSACRED BY THE AMERICAN TROOPS WHO CLAIMED THEY WERE THERE TO FREE THEM. FREE THEM FROM WHAT???????????????????????????????????????????

6 Jibril: I myself besides probably others would like to know your thoughts of what you want out of Iraq...does not america mean to you that we live in freedom of life, speech and etc? Does it not mean anything to you that the men and women of America is fighting for peace in Iraq...besides the foreigners that are there too fighting for iraq freedom.. I don't see a holy war ever ending... its like a vietnam...supposedly by me just having one son he might be saved from the draft..but when he told me the reqruiters are at his school promising them this and that and he was thinking of it...which you can't change a boys mind.. but by he being of mixed blood of middle-east and america i would be afraid for his life...War is tragic on both sides...It saddens me so to see people there as peace workers and living in iraq for forever to be taken as a hostage but was there for the good of the iraq people...not everyone is a spy...people are there because they couldn't make it money wise elsewhere and they saw opportunities in iraq to rebuild and better their lives financially.. i don't mind if you write me back and tell me off.. i am just curious of your thoughts of what you want for the people of iraq....
