Story is here.

    Originally posted by Reuters
    BAGHDAD (Reuters) - One of two Iraqi female scientists in U.S. detention could be released on Wednesday, a senior Justice Ministry official said, in a move that may raise hopes for the release of a British hostage.

    The official, who asked not to be named, said that Rihab Taha, a biological weapons scientist dubbed "Dr Germ" by U.S. soldiers, could be freed as part of a review of her detention.

    "It is possible, God willing. Her case has been under review," he said.

    ....



This after a tearful brother of one of the victims, Jack Hensley, was on the Today Show.

If this is true, I think it's a big mistake on the U.S.' part. As much as you would want to spin it that Iraq is "soverign," we're still a big presence. Someone that said that they wouldn't cave in to "evil" might now -- especially after two Americans have been beheaded?

If the Briton is saved, that's wonderful. However, what about the other gents that have paid the ultimate price?

I don't know but maybe this is just coincidence and her case was under review and should be released. At least I hope that is the case.
