A Great Person To Get Information From

A suicide bomber, who failed, and Jordan may have one.

AMMAN, Jordan (CNN) -- A woman who allegedly planned to be a fourth suicide bomber in the blasts that targeted Amman hotels last week has been detained by authorities, according to Jordanian officials.

Saijida Mubarak Atrous al-Rishawi, 35, accompanied her husband, Ali Hussein Ali al-Shamari, and two other suicide bombers -- Rawad Jassem Mohammed Abed, 23, and Safaa Mohammed Ali, 23 -- to Jordan from Iraq on November 5, Deputy Prime Minister Marwan Muasher said. All four are Iraqis.

If she was really involved, she will be a priceless resource in the effort to end these attacks.

Especially since Jordan will be free to torture it out of her.

In this case, at least, it isn't a US matter.

While I oppose torture, and I think we should make the US position clear to Jordan (that tourture is never acceptable), in then end we have no say in her treatment.

One think I think it does point to, police work, not millitary action, is more effective at fighting terror. A point I have been making for 3 years now
