A good story about the rescue of Jessica Lynch, courtesy of Knight-Ridder:
MARINE COMBAT HEADQUARTERS, Iraq - The Iraqi man who tipped U.S. Marines to the location of American POW Jessica Lynch said Thursday he did so after he saw her Iraqi captor slap her twice as she lay wounded in a hospital.

"A person, no matter his nationality, is a human being," the tipster, a 32-year-old lawyer whose wife was a nurse at the hospital, said in an interview at Marines' headquarters, where he, his wife and daughter are being treated as heroes and guests of honor.
The lawyer, who would only state his first name as "Mohammed", says he loves America. I think his sentiment is shared by many others in Iraq. This will become increasingly apparent in the coming days.
