CROSS WITH RED CROSS

Reader James C., of Fredericksburg, Virginia, emails:

So far I have read 110 comments to this post and no one seems to have noticed what could be a larger implication in the story. Zombie Times reports that the ambulance hoax started with a press statement from the Red Cross on July 24th, which was then picked up and expanded upon by the media. Zombie Times quotes the press release as saying that on July 23rd in Cana, two Red Cross ambulances were struck by weapons fire in violation of international conventions (in other words, a war crime).

What I want to point out is that it looks mighty apparent that the Red Cross (or at least the local chapter owning the two ambulances) was at least partly complicit in perpetrating the hoax. I mean, they were the first to issue a press release which started the whole thing. What we may have here is a very large, international NGO involved (partly or wholly) in a fraud intended to bring down a U.N. recognized nation. That should be big news to everyone.

As far as I am concerned, this event should hurt the Red Cross as it appears they were used (possibly knowingly) to perpetrate a massive war-time fraud against a nation allied with the West in the War on Terror. Why should anyone now trust the Red Cross?

Over to you, Red Cross, should any representatives wish to reply.
