This nightmare of the hostage-taking of foreign citizens, along with the kidnapping of middle-class Iraqis for ransom to feed the insurgency is all on Bush’s hands. He cannot blame this chaos on Kerry. From an Iraqi’s blog on the kidnappings of locals:

“This is becoming a very common situation and it is particularly the Baghdadi middle class and the better people who are most cruelly hit. For every foreigner kidnapped you must count perhaps a thousand Iraqis, and this is no exaggeration. The good people have become easy pray to merciless gangs with very little protection from the IP or any other form of Law Enforcement agencies, who can hardly protect themselves, let alone providing security for others. These gangs are part and parcel of the so-called “resistance” and “insurgency”; in many cases they are one and the same.”
