The daring special operations rescue of U.S. Army Pfc. Jessica Lynch occurred in the still regime-controlled city of Nasiriyah, but it wouldn't have happened without the help of an Iraqi citizen. He tipped off U.S. forces of the soldier's whereabouts. NPR's Christopher Joyce speaks with Washington Post correspondent Peter Baker, who interviewed the informant in southern Iraq.
