In my recent posting of a piece entitled “Negroponte’s ‘Serious Setback’” which I wrote for Truthout.org, I wrote a somewhat misleading parallel between US missionaries in Honduras and the Christian Peacemaker Team in Iraq.
I wrote: “Victims also included US missionaries (similar to Christian Peacemaker Teams in Iraq) who happened to witness many of the atrocities.”
The work CPT does in Iraq in in no way, shape or form missionary work. There is no missionary work whatsoever done by CPT in Iraq or any other place where they operate. They are in Iraq to observe and record, and they were involved in documenting human rights abuses at American-run prisons when the hostages were taken.
