CNN: Columbia Committed War Crime Rescuing Hostages

CNN reports that they think they saw the red cross symbol on one of the rescuers in secret photos. This supposedly will make the terrorists trust neutral groups less, and therefore is a war crime. Does that sound right to you?
Colombian military used Red Cross emblem in rescue

(CNN)..."What seems to be part of a red cross is seen on a bib worn by a man involved in the rescue in this official image.
Photographs of the Colombian military intelligence-led team that spearheaded the rescue, shown to CNN by a confidential military source, show one man wearing a bib with the Red Cross symbol.
Misuse of the Red Cross emblem is governed by articles 37, 38 and 85 of Additional Protocol One to the Geneva Conventions, the international rules of war. The articles prohibit "feigning of protected status by the use of ... emblems" of neutral parties and say that such misuses are considered breaches of international humanitarian law that qualify as a "war crime."
Colombia signed the Geneva Conventions in 1949."

Article 38 does prohibit using the Red Cross symbol during times of war for purposes other than medical.

But did anyone consider... perhaps the guy they saw was a medic?
