Aussie Hostage Cover-up?
The Simply Appalling blog has been staying on the case of the Australians who were reportedly kidnapped in Iraq.
The body of a Westerner turned up a few days ago in Samarra, but nodoby seems to have been able to identify it yet and it could be that the US/Allawi forces are unable to even enter the rebel-controlled area where it was found.
As the author of the blog says, this is looking a lot like a cover-up:
"Would it be asking too much of the Australian media to make some inquiries of their government? Did anyone from the Baghdad embassy ever make it to Samarra? If so, what sort of tests did they conduct to determine the identity of the body? You would think they would want to know.
