Mohammed, a gregarious 32-year-old Iraqi lawyer, went by the hospital in Nasiriyah one day last week to visit his wife, who worked there as a nurse, when he noticed the ominous presence of security agents.

Curious, he asked around, and a doctor friend told him an American soldier was being held there. Something made him want to go see. The doctor took him to a first-floor emergency wing where he pointed out the soldier through a glass interior window a young woman lying in a bed, bandaged and covered in a white blanket.

Inside the room with her was an imposing Iraqi man, clad all in black. Mohammed watched as the man slapped the American woman with his open palm, then again with the back of his hand. In that instant, Mohammed recalled today, he resolved to do something. After the man in black left, Mohammed sneaked in to see the young woman.

Dont worry, dont worry, he told her. He was going for help.

Five days later, after Mohammed located U.S. Marines and told them what he knew, Black Hawk helicopters swooped in under cover of darkness, touching down next to the six-story hospital, and a team of heavily-armed commandos stormed the building.

This is an amazing story of bravery, we all can imagine the consequences this man faced if he was caught. If you continue reading the article, he drew five maps by hand to help the troops locate and rescue her. I hope he is rewarded for his bravery!

Good stuff PA.


Anything that reminds people the majority of Iraqi are good decent people is a good thing.
People forget that the Iraqis had a reputation worldwide for being extremely generous and friendly people.

That didn't change when they went under a dictatorship.

They seem to have extremely detailed accounts of things like this....remember their story on the night the war began, with the timetable of events and the 40 tomahawks launched at Saddams "impregnable" bunker? Kudos!

That's a lie. Just like the bullet and stab wounds which have already been discounted on TV by her father.

Just another lie ontop of the lies from the satanist country.

And what makes you think this is a lie, do you have any proof or links or is this just your opinion?

about the bullet wounds and stabbing...

It's nice to see that the spin doctors finally got back from vacation this week, but they don't need to lie to put spin on things... I'm still not sure about this rescue story either, until more facts emerge....

Man, is Tyler back already?

If the story is true, then that man was very brave to do what he did in order to save someone he didn't know.
