Eleven US Soldiers Hostage In Somalia

This is un-news, in that there are no soldiers captured in Somalia until Fox News does a story on it. I'd heard about this early in the week, but didn't find press on it until today. They'll probably be released; the US negotiator is a seasoned diplomat, and the captor is a respected moderate leader. In the past, the diplomat (US Ambassador to Kenya Michael Ranneberger) has urged that the moderate leader (Sheik Sharif) be included in the Somali government.
