More re the tipoff from the New York Post (you’d think I would check the Post before I turned on the TV….I am a NEW YORKER…John Derbyshire will be ashamed to be associated with me):
In a twist right out of a Hollywood movie, U.S. intelligence may have pinpointed her exact whereabouts thanks to an Iraqi citizen – who passed a note, apparently written in English by a woman, to a Marine in the area yesterday, NBC reported.
“She’s still alive. She’s in room [deleted],” the note said, according to the network.
An NBC reporter also said he was approached the same day by an Iraqi who told him in English: “There’s a woman in the Saddam Hospital who’s an American soldier. Please make sure the people in charge know.”
