It is, Art, and I am overjoyed. I never quite understood this one. Her family and colleagues must be overjoyed.

US hostage Jill Carroll released in Baghdad

· Journalist survived two deadlines in 82-day ordeal
· No deal made to secure release, says ambassador

Jonathan Steele in Baghdad and Suzanne Goldenberg in Washington
Friday March 31, 2006
The Guardian


Eighty-two days after she was dragged from her car at gunpoint, American journalist Jill Carroll was free yesterday, walking unharmed into the branch office of an Iraqi political party in one of the most dangerous suburbs of Baghdad.
Carrying a slip of paper in Arabic identifying her as a kidnapped American, Ms Carroll, 28, a freelance journalist who had been working in Baghdad for the Christian Science Monitor, arrived at a branch office of the Iraqi Islamic party in the western neighbourhood of Amiriya at about midday.

She was very lucky to survive. Credit to her for how well she dealt with her captives, and credit to her family and friends in the message they tried to communicate to her captives. Hostage situations such as these could go bad in so many ways. It is a miracle that this one came up with a happy ending. Some credit is also due her captives for recognizing her for the kind of person she was rather than as a symbol of the oppressors, and for deciding eventually that it made more sense to release her.

Thanks for that link, Ebbie. Her initial statement sounded a bit wrong. That explains it.

I agree, Wolfgang. When she said there had been no threats made against her that didn't ring true at all.
