I've Been Thinking:
Phil Sands is one lucky man.
On December 26th the British freelance journalist was kidnapped in Iraq.
He was held for five days.
Sands wrote for the San Francisco Chronicle as well as the Dubai paper Emirates Today. The Chronicle just released his story.
In Iraq, it is unusual for kidnappers to free their hostages.
The only way to actually save lives is to find exactly where hostages are being held and raid the place.
Phil Sands was freed by accident.
US forces raided the farmhouse where he was being held and stumbled upon the hostage.
The US forces were there on another mission.
What a goof.
Had they been looking for him, they probably never would have found him.
