Paying the price of terror

Allen E Brain noted an Iraq the Model post that contrasted with a BBC report on the ransom paid for Ms. Sgrena. The conclusion is that the Italians provided money for another 30,000 attack payments on Iraqi citizens, police, and national guard.

Iraqi TV has been doing a reality type TV show featuring confessions of the terrorists they have caught. It seems they are paid a bit under $200 US for each attack. The ransom paid appears to have been near $8M.
