I've read a lot of her work the past year or two, it seemed quite fair to all parties (i.e. not being anti-US or anti-military). She also reported searing dispatches about the devastation inflicted upon innocent Iraqi civilians by the insurgency and terrorists. Her loss will be tragic for the Iraqi people, whom she eloquently represented in her reporting. I just hope perhaps there is still a chance she can be rescued. Though it looks highly doubtful, with the monsters who kidnapped her threatening her death unless their demands are met. Sad may it be, we cannot give in those demands, only bring those who commit such horrible acts to a swift, deserved death and one-way ticket to hell.
