Freed Italian Hostage Says Iraq Rebels 'Justified'

ROME (Oct. 1) - An Italian aid worker held hostage last month in Iraq said guerrillas there were right to fight U.S.-led forces and their Iraqi "puppet government."

In comments that were bound to annoy Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi's government, Simona Torretta also called on Rome to withdraw the troops it sent to Iraq to support its U.S. ally.

Former Captive Backs Guerillas

"I said it before the kidnapping and I repeat it today," she told Corriere della Sera newspaper in an interview published Friday.

"You have to distinguish between terrorism and resistance. The guerrilla war is justified, but I am against the kidnapping of civilians."

Torretta and her Italian colleague Simona Pari, both of them 29, were freed Tuesday, three weeks after being snatched from their Baghdad office. Berlusconi has brushed aside widespread reports that his government paid a ransom of up to $1 million.

Describing the administration of Iraqi Prime Minister Iyad Allawi as "a puppet government in the hands of the Americans," Torretta said elections planned for January would have no legitimacy: "During my days in detention ... I came to the conclusion it will take decades to put Iraq back on its feet."

Torretta, who lived in Iraq before, during and after the U.S.-led invasion, said she wanted to return despite her ordeal -- but would not do so as long as U.S. troops were there: "I've got to wait until the end of the U.S. occupation," she said.

She said she did know whether Italy bought her freedom from the kidnappers: "If a ransom was paid then I am very sorry. But I know nothing about it ... I believe that (the kidnappers) were a very political, religious group and that in the end they were convinced that we were not enemies."

I wonder how she would have felt if they had killed her?

Don't blame us blame Sadam. He fucked with us for over a decade, violated the cease-fire agreements, sponored families of suicide bombers, fought a decade long war with Iran, killed his own people, develped and attempted to re-develop WMD, and generally created instability in the region.

Have you all seen the stories regarding these two italian women are almost certainly fake hostages, just like the trio of Japanese?
Both of the Italians are part of Leftist Pacifist groups, and the older female japanese hostage - who along with her two fellows is scorned in Japan for her participation in their fraud - 'just happened' to be physically present with the mother of one of the Italian "hostages" a la the fisherman in Elian Gonzalez's closet, when news of their release reached her (the mother).
The whole thing stinks, and stinks worse the more you dig into their story.

Are these the 2 that they announced had been beheaded a couple of weeks ago?

I suspect that the ONLY way people like this come to understand evil - when THEIR head is on a platter.

I guess that's what happens when you introduce Islamic spermotozoa into her bloodstream.

Something tells me that somebody who has been thru so much trauma and fear will not be a credible source.

For all we know, they might have tortured the hell out of her.

But if not, she is a dumb cuntrag.

Clearly this woman has her head planted squarley in her own ass. I think we should call for an investigation into this supposed kidnapping, sounds oftly convenient! Maybe its stockholm syndrome, brain washing, or just pure unbridaled ignorance and stupidity. I will never understand the leftist mindset, I'm sure if they found her head on the roadside it would be a completely different story. I think the cameljockeys didn't kill these wemon is because it might have finally woken up the left opposition to find a female aid workers head on a pike on the roadside. Or it's rigged?

Sounds like it was a mistake for her government to pay for her release. They should have left her there.

Sounds like they have been cutting the wrong heads off over there.
