Do the events involving Pfc. Jessica Lynch require that we answer the question of whether the women in the armed forces are just soldiers like all of the men. Ramesh Ponnuru thinks that there are questions that we need to ask...and answer.

"But it appears that people do not want to consider whether our captured women are being subjected to special tortures, or even being tortured at all. Here's how Kerry Sanders reported the tip-off about Lynch on CNBC: "The information about an American POW still being alive is information that had been flowing to the U.S. Marines on almost a daily basis. Even yesterday, somebody came up to me and said, 'You're a journalist, you need to know there's an American soldier who's being held in the hospital. She's being tortured. Please make sure that the people who are in charge of the U.S. military know that she's alive."

The New York Post online quoted Sanders, but left out the sentence about torture."
