Update on Iraqi female detainees

Broadsheet elaborates on what seems to be women being used as bait between Iraqi insurgents and US troops in this *hostage* situation.

As they ask,

And we wonder why Iraqi insurgents think taking a woman hostage and attempting to use her as a bargaining chip might be an effective tactic?

Hmmm.
