You don't view them as "American Freedom Fighters" like Hamas?

Don't you consider them freedom fighters? Like the "Contras"?

They weren't -

Meanwhile, eight suspected guerrillas jailed in Iraq who claimed to be American and British citizens were found to be lying, a U.S. general told NBC News on Tuesday.
Brig. Gen. Janis Karpinski, who is in charge of coalition detention centers in Iraq, said the men?s claims quickly unraveled under investigation. She said the coalition forces are holding 241 non-Iraqis from 22 countries, but added that none of the prisoners are Westerners.
The Associated Press reported earlier on Tuesday that six men claiming to be Americans and two claiming British citizenship had been held 12 miles west of Baghdad at the notorious Abu Ghraib prison, where Saddam Hussein imprisoned many political opponents.

False alarm for the press hounds. I'm sure they were gearing up for a whole new campaign of "American Traitor!" coverage 24-hours a day.
