AP – Report: Carroll Threatened Before Release

Jill Carroll’s kidnappers reportedly warned her before her release that she might be killed if she cooperated with the Americans or went to the Green Zone, saying it was infiltrated by insurgents.

Ah yes, they “treated her well”.

The Monitor quoted her family as saying that her kidnappers had warned her against talking to the Americans or going to the Green Zone. They told her it was “infiltrated by the mujahedeen,” the newspaper said.

So, as LGF says, we’re hearing this from her family, not from her, which we’re all of course reading into, yes? And yet yesterday the press was quoting her (without any trace of irony that I could tell, given that her translator was murdered, but whatever), quite freely?
