I think this is what you're looking for -- it's not documented on the portal
yet and came as part of the #newtwitter upgrades:

GET /1/statuses/retweeted_by_user.{format}
Does not require authentication, unless the user is protected.
Returns the 20 most recent retweets posted by the specified user. The
user is specified using the user_id or screen_name parameters. This
method is identical to statuses/retweeted_by_me except you can choose
the user to view.

Example: twurl /1/statuses/retweeted_by_user.json?screen_name=twitterapi
