It's a Matter of Interpretation
USAToday reprints this AP story about the Iraqi family that was mistakenly shot at a checkpoint. The relevant section:
Sgt. 1st Class Stephen Furbush, an Army intelligence analyst, said the message read: "To be safe, stay put."
So, maybe it's more specifically a translation matter. Perhaps more interesting was this:
The family of 17 packed into its 1974 Land Rover. Hassan's father drove. In his 60s, he wore his best clothes for the trip through the American lines: a pinstriped suit.
I didn't realize the Land Rover was such an old model.
