    It is said in Italy by journalists that Berlusconi did so.

    And now Tony Blair is trying to deal with the kidnappers of the english hostage. But I think he will to offer more $$ for him, because the price of a human being is going up now.

    Your link takes me to CBS news for today - so I couldn't see the story. But if the women in my article are the same women as in yours, they had a few things to say about their captors and the Iraq situation. The original article is from the NY Times, but you need a subscription for it, so here is a link to another site that carries the article. Sort of interesting... :wink:
