Barbi playmate taken hostage

Thanks to Kevin for the link to the darkly amusing article about the action figure used in a picture on an Islamic website as blackmail for the release of Iraqi prisoners. It must have been a tad weird for an American toy company to have to identify its own product (including toy rifle held in a threatening manner at the action figure soldier) as the true subject of the picture. Not that it’s ever good to grin at hostage taking at any time, I think we can be safe in having a chuckle at the extreme stupidity of using an American doll product in hostage negotiations with the Americans.
