I just learned that the 3 remaining CPT captives in Iraq were freed.
This is joyful news.
Thank you God for reasons to hope.
What I was struck with, was the words used to describe the event.
The men were found by British troops after getting intel from an Iraqi that they recently captured (or took hostage…. depending on how you look at it.)
When the British went in, no one else was there.
The BBC says the men were freed, CPT’s statement uses the word released.
I read a bunch of other news sources and organizational websites, and was very intrigued by the language use.
One word said volumes about the perspective of the writer.
Language is a powerful thing.
