I Guess It's Only Fair
If two of our "heads" have to roll at the hands of terrorists, at least one of our coalition partner's heads ought to roll too. It seems as though there had been plans to release Dr. Germ but when it looked like we might not be remaining "steadfast," we had to nix the plan:
"The brother of British hostage Kenneth Bigley says the US has 'sabotaged' his brother's release by refusing to free a detained woman scientist in Iraq.
Paul Bigley told the BBC there had been 'a shadow of light' when Iraqi ministers said the woman would go free.
But the US ruled out freeing the woman - one of two held in Iraq - saying it would not give in to the kidnappers. "
Can't have Bush looking like he was cooperating. Though at first thought it might seem that the poor Brit's fate might be sealed, the captors may just decide to release him ... just to show how rabid their hate is for the US. Perhaps they'll free him and grab another American in his place. We'll just have to wait and see.
