"If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

So, where were the press corps comments about this?

There was a dramatic getaway for two Polish journalists abducted by armed Iraqi secret service members south of Baghdad.

The Polish radio and TV reporters were detained at a checkpoint south of Baghdad Monday afternoon as they traveled with journalists.

Other reporters in the convoy got away but managed to tape the incident. Iraqis interrogated the men at a school and suggested they were spies.

The men finally escaped when a teacher at the school returned the keys to their jeep and motioned for them to make a run for it during an artillery barrage.

The pair drove off and later found U.S. troops who helped them to safety.
