Although very glad Jill Carroll was released from her captives in Iraq on Thursday, I was beginning to get a bit creeped out at all the news footage of her talking to TV and still wearing the Muslim headscarf. Thankfully, she has now been photographed leaving a plane in Germany wearing military fatiques. Some reports say she made a propaganda video for her captives as a condition of her release.
According to a story in the Christian Science Monitor:
"Carroll did what many hostage experts and past captives would have urged her to do: Give the men who held the power of life and death over her what they wanted."
I doubt anyone is blaming her for anything, merely trying to understand what happened.
