It's wonderful that an American POW was rescued
, but also interesting we're not being told yet about the status of those she was captured with. Reportedly she was part of the maintenance team we saw so many pics of last week, the 507th. We're told 15 soldiers died. We're not told if the other POWs were among the dead.
Incidentally, I don't want to seem too PC here, but I've been watching a lot of war coverage and this plus the hostage footage are the most I've seen of women in this war. Meaning that what we've seen has been women in distress and women rescued. There are also women doing their jobs there, but we see little of that. Is it thought that we'll be less supportive of women in the military if we actually see that they're there?
But in any event, very well-timed operation. I imagine this was just what Rumsfeld needed.
Then again, Bush has been known to support people just before cutting them loose. Again, we'll see.
