Romanian reporters, freed from Iraqi terrorists
After 55 days of being prisoners in Iraq, the three Romanian reporters and their American-Iraqi guide were freed. The guide is still in Iraq, while our reporters arrived in Bucharest 15 minutes ago. In order to be sure the rescue action was Romanian-designed, one of the plane wheels got torn apart, making the landing a bit difficult. It seems they didn’t double-check their gear. Why doesn’t that surprise me, using a not that good plane when all the TV stations are getting it on tape?

This event is quite important and we are all glad to see them home, but we really cannot help it making stupid comments: the TV cameras zoomed on the broken wheel for several minutes. The best part was hearing all my colleagues’ comments. Pretty hilarious. For example, someone noticed they weren’t too skinny, considering…Radu replied that they ate there just as we used to when our boss was in the country. True, our boss spoiled us, and all the Sahara Restaurant Muslim specials are delicious…What can I say, we tend to exaggerate!

To me, they looked like people who were really happy to have gotten out of a terrible situation. And all the fuss about who organized the kidnapping – if they were real terrorists or something else – wouldn’t change their experience with the real terrorists that took over. I remember the images of them crying with guns aiming at their heads…So what if they aren’t skinny? They deserved at least good food for putting up with the silent threat of the guns…
