So what have YOU been doing for the past 12 months?

You could have been a hostage in Iraq, waiting for your captors to cut your fingers off. Note that the US media is relying on Austrian reports:
The Austrian weekly magazine News first reported the delivery of the five fingers in Wednesday's edition...
And the families of the US hostages are in the same boat:
Relatives of the American hostages said they received phone calls from U.S. authorities early Wednesday...
Factor in the time difference there and it's clear the US authorities only contacted the families AFTER the news broke in Austria.
"I know we're in a war on terror, but to not tell the families anything and let us sit out here for 18 months just isn't right," Mark Munns said.
Well, you got one thing right, mate.
