Iraqi insurgents issued a remark concerning Pfc. Keith Matthew Maupin, an American taken hostage a few days ago.

"He is in good health and being treated based on the tenets of Islamic law for the treatment of soldiers taken hostage. We will keep him until we trade him for our prisoners in the custody of the U.S. enemy. We want them to know -- and the whole world to know -- that when we took him in, he came out of his tank holding a white flag and he lay face down on the ground, just like other soldiers."

The private is a member of the 724th Transportation Company. What are the chances he was in a tank?

It's probably bunk. I hope Mr. Maupin is ok. :(
