Jill Carroll Set Free

Iraqi insergents set US journalist free for no reason
By Chris Casey

You know how I know the US negotiated with the terrorists for the freedom of Jill Carroll? Because they denied it.

No involvement from military
In Washington, a Pentagon spokesman said the U.S. military was not involved in Carroll’s release.

Meanwhile, German authorities said Thursday they arrested a man who is accused of trying to extort $2 million from the Christian Science Monitor by promising to win Carroll’s release.

A U.S. arrest warrant and FBI affidavit made public Thursday by federal prosecutors in Washington said that Kelvin Kamara, a west African native living in Germany, struck up an e-mail exchange with a Monitor editor in Washington little more than a month after Carroll’s abduction in early January. Kamara, calling himself Saidu Mohammed, said he knew who was holding Carroll and could arrange her freedom in exchange for the payment, the FBI affidavit said.

In either case I am glad Ms. Carroll has been let free and is unharmed.
