Freedom

Jill Carroll, fresh from her 82 days in captivity over there in Iraq by some insurgents, has come clean about her captivity. All of which I had figured. Many wondered about her being afflicted with “Stockholm Syndrome” and other such maladies, but I figured it was more simple: they held her, she wanted freedom, she played the game. That was basically her story today, even refuting some of the press accounts of her sentiments.

Have to admit, if I were in a similar position I would say anything that helped keep me alive and gain my freedom. After you’re free you can (attempt) to set the record straight.

McCain has come out in her favour, and he knows only too well how it feels to be held by captors with little care for human life.

I do not begrudge this woman anything in saying what she needed to say to stay alive. Where I am disguisted, however, is how the American press used the words of this woman, who was under duress, to try to advance their anti-war agenda.–>
