President Bush has advised Iraqi President Saddam Hussein that if he wants to talk, he can simply place a local call to the ranking U.S. diplomat in Iraq. Bush's man in Baghdad is Joseph C. Wilson IV, a 40-year-old Californian described by colleagues as steely enough to stand up to Hussein and savvy enough to know how to do it.

A few highs and many lows have passed in the more than three months that Americans have been held hostage in Iraq, and Wednesday, the eve of Thanksgiving, was a time for reflection. At a diplomatic compound near the Tigris River, where an undisclosed number of American men have taken shelter, the mood was somber. Their thoughts were concentrated on their families and more than 100 of their compatriots held captive at potential military targets under Iraqi guard.

President Bush today took "one extra step" toward direct U.S.-Iraqi talks, proposing a meeting next week between Secretary of State James A. Baker III and Iraqi Foreign Minister Tarik Aziz. Iraq said it was studying the offer. Bush's offer came a dozen days before the Jan. 15 U.N. deadline for Iraq to pull out of Kuwait or face a possible attack.
