Somethings Fishy!

American "journalist" Jill Carroll was released by her kidnappers in Iraq yesterday. Funny how she heaps praise on her "captors."

Jill Carroll, who works for the Boston-based Christian Science Monitor, was abducted by unknown gunmen in west Baghdad on 7 January.

She told Iraqi television she had been treated well and was looking forward to being reunited with her family.

'Safe place'

However, she stressed that her captors treated her "very well".

"They never hit me. I was kept in a safe place with nice furniture, plenty of food. I was allowed to take showers," she said


You have to read all the way to the bottom of the article to find this out.

Ms Carroll was kidnapped in Baghdad's western Adil district while going to interview the senior Sunni Arab politician Adnan al-Dulaimi. Her interpreter was killed.

Interesting that she mentioned how "nice" the furniture was but not a word about the murder of her interpreter. Excuse me if I don't believe that Ms. Carroll was ever kidnapped. My money is on Ms. Carroll working hand in hand with the terrorists and she in effect "kidnapped" herself. All this for a little good publicity on how well the terrorists treat their "hostages."

I agree, just too fishy to be true. Jane

Even my liberal blog partner believes she wasn't kidnapped. That should tell you something.

I never thought that bitch was kidnapped - it was phony from the start, not enough information to make sense of anything said or done in this situation. She was just having a good old time all the while she was there, never giving a thought to her interpreter. She's a typical woman who is only interested in self. BLAKE
