What the ???

Iraqi authorities together with U.S. forces have decided to free one of only two high-profile women prisoners currently in American custody, a ministry spokesman said Wednesday.

Ministry spokesman Noori Abdul-Rahim Ibrahim, however, denied the decision was linked to a demand by militants who abducted two Americans and a Briton calling for the release of all female Iraqi prisoners.

"The Iraqi authorities have agreed with coalition forces to conditionally release Rihab Rashid Taha on bail", Ibrahim said.

Taha, a scientist who became known as "Dr. Germ" for helping Iraq make weapons out of anthrax, and Huda Salih Mahdi Ammash, a biotech researcher known as "Mrs. Anthrax," are the only two Iraq women held in American custody, according to the U.S. military.

Yeah, right. Tony Blair is probably blackmailing Bush to save his own political hide along with the head of the Brit who's still being held hostage. Let's see how the wingers who love Bush's "resoluteness" spin this one --

UPDATE: AmericaBlog reports that Bush has changed his mind. Flip flop.
