Not so long ago, Jan Piekarski was a member in good standing of Poland's pro-Soviet ruling party; an official in a Communist government that maintained the best of relations with Saddam Hussein's Iraq. How times have changed. Now Jan Piekarski spends his days at the desk of the U.S. ambassador to Iraq, a photograph of President Bush behind him.

An American oilman who spent 205 days of an eight-year prison term in Iraqi jails was freed by Iraqi President Saddam Hussein on Monday after a U.S. senator went to Baghdad to appeal for his release. Kenneth Beaty, an exploration expert for the Dallas-based Santa Fe Drilling Corp., ranked among America's least-known prisoners abroad through nearly seven months of quiet diplomacy that ended after U.S. Sen. David L. Boren (D-Okla.) met with Iraqi Deputy Prime Minister Tarik Aziz on Sunday night.
