According to the Jerusalem Post, some Syrians were captured by the Marines in Fallujah.

Now, if this is an isolated case I'm not going to worry about it. The story doesn't say how many were captured, for instance, and heck, an American was captured in Afghanistan. Plus you have to consider that the JPost might just have a teensy bit of an interest in getting the Yanks riled up against Syria.

But with all that said... if this does become a trend -- if Sadr is starting to gather militant Muslims to his side from all over the Middle East, not just in Iraq -- the awful events of the last few days could be nothing compared to what follows.

Some good news that wasn't just transparant White House spin would be nice right about now.
