The missing American soldier who has been the subject of an intensive manhunt here in the capital since he was kidnapped by gunmen outside the heavily protected Green Zone last week was secretly married to an Iraqi woman and had been visiting her at the time of the abduction, several people who identified themselves as his in-laws said Sunday.This is Romeo & Juliet. The Americans are the Montagues, and the Iraqis are the Capulets. This is one production I'd like to see; let's hope the real-life version plays out with less tragedy than Shakespeare's "Most Excellent and Lamentable Tragedy ."
