American Tom Fox of Christian Peacemaker Teams has been killed in Iraq. He was taken hostage last year along with three other hostages from the same organization who are Canadian. His body was found on Friday morning. The cause of death is unknown.
An American who was among four Christian activists kidnapped last year in Iraq has been killed, a State Department spokesman said Friday.

The FBI verified that a body found in Iraq Friday morning was that of Tom Fox, 54, of Clear Brook, Va., spokesman Noel Clay said. He said he had no information on the other three hostages.

Clay said he did not know how Fox was killed but said additional forensics will be done in the United States. The U.S. Embassy in Baghdad is investigating, he said.

This is sad, but predictable. It emphasizes for us once more the utter lack of conscience of our enemies and the depths to which they will dive to further their merciless agenda. May he rest in peace.

It has now been revealed that the body of Tom Fox showed signs that he had been tortured prior to his being shot in the head.

American hostage Tom Fox -- who was kidnapped with three other Christian peace activists in November -- has been found shot in the head with his body showing signs of torture, Iraqi emergency police told CNN Saturday.

Fox's body was found wrapped in a blanket around 5 p.m. Thursday in the Daoudi neighborhood in western Baghdad -- dumped on the main road near a train station. His hands and feet were bound, police said. He was wearing gray trousers and a gray shirt.

Police discovered the body and then contacted an Iraqi army patrol that was nearby. The Iraqi army also determined that the body appeared to be of a Westerner, and U.S. forces were called to the scene.

Since there haven't been any comments on this most recent murder, I have to wonder if we have become complacent regarding our enemies or if a story like this can't fly without video footage.

Lack of conscience like how they are over their trying to convert muslims to christianity?
"Making peace" my ass! Just like how you see soldiers throwing candy out the back of armored vehicles to the children. Thats why they dont like us to begin with, because we corrupt and shove our beliefs down their throats.

deaths in Iraq are so common now that headlines like "85 bodies found in 24 hours" doesn't even shock or surprise me anymore.

I guess we sort of become immune and complacent to all these deaths because it's happening so far away and well American media isn't as graphic in portraying death to us, so it never really hits home or sink in to us, the severity and the finality of so many lives (on both sides) being lost.

the lines are becoming blurred between the innocent, the soldiers, the terrorists, death is death and putting value on one over another is hard to do, unless you're related or know the decease, death in Iraq doesn't seem to quite register with us in the way it should.

it's very sad
