Are You Suspicious?

Is anyone beside me and mine suspicious about the motives and methodology of Jill Carroll, the Christian Science Monitor reporter released by her captors in Iraq today? Something began stinking about this from early on into her "captivity." Something in the pleading videotapes just failed to ring fully true. Her appearance and behavior today after her alleged release also failed to ring true-as-presented. In some ways, Carroll reminds us of the story of that Georgia girl who became known as "the runaway bride," even though the Carroll situation is not the same in terms of concrete details. The Georgia girl story began stinking early on also. Of course, only time will tell the truth, if the truth differs from what is being presented.

We are curious to see if others are willing to acknowledge suspiciousness of Carroll before the truth comes out fully.

    As I am in the UK, I have not seen the coverage of Jill Carroll in the American news media. But I am told that she has appeared wearing the burqah. Is this so?

    It would appear that she might yet suffer from Stockholm syndrome. We might yet hear of her 'reversion' to the ROP!

    She was wearing Islamic attire for women. MY understanding would make this attire a scarf (hijab?) and one of those cloak-like hanging "dresses" to the floor. Her face was not covered. You know far better the term for this attire than I do, but I think it was not a burqa per se.

    She did not mention her Iraqi translator who had been murdered by the abductors nor any of her screaming, pleading videotapes made while captive.

    We became suspicious early on in her captivity that this might be something staged. She is a journalistic leftist who sees the USA as the villain in Iraq.

    Stockholm Syndrome might apply to her or simply theatrics. There is something about her that reminds me of Nick Berg's highly leftist father following Nick's beheading. The man just could not stop working an agenda.

    The news this morning mentioned another female journalist who had been captured some while ago. During her captivity, she converted to Islam and is now an outspoken, rabid Islamist. Will Carroll follow suit?

    What has been astonishing has been the presently muted but obvious growing doubt in the broadcast media about the Jill Carroll saga. No one is voicing suspicions about her motivation yet, but they are sensing that all of this is not adding up.

    For goodness' sake, I hope this one isn't going to 'revert' too. What the hell is the matter with these people? They come within a hair's breadth of being beheaded and then they wish to 'revert' (oh, how I hate that term!)! It just doesn't add up for normal people, does it?

    I wouldn't bet my bottom dollar that she won't 'revert' though, all the same.

    By the way, I didn't think that the Christian Science Monitor was a newspaper which hired lefties. Please elucidate.

    Alas, I do not know much about the Christian Science Monitor. I have heard murmurings in the past that it had turned left, although it never seemed to be one of the militant leftist rags. But, without doubt, Jill is a leftie, complete with condemnation of her country and whitewashing Iraq and Iraqis.

    Maybe other readers can bring the light to our darkness regarding this newspaper.
