Jill Carroll

I have refrained from commenting on the Jill Carroll matter, wishing to give her the benefit of the doubt regarding her release and the statements she made prior to being found.

So many are attacking her - and those who are in my opinion have jumped the gun. Although I am willing to admit that I was wrong about her, my gut feeling is that she did what did in order to gain her release. According to this new story, she stated that she had been kept in a cave-like, dark room throughout her captivity.

Upon release, she was afraid to enter the Green Zone for fear she would be killed. She had been told by her captors that the Green Zone was infiltrated and she would be killed.

She has not been trained by our military to know how to survive in captivity, nor to communicate distress. So IMHO, anyone who attacks her for the video she made prior to being released is reacting too quickly. Let's see what the next few weeks bring.
