The post-Jill Carroll release buzz

First off, I am very pleased that Jill Carroll was released by her captors in Iraq and that she appears to be healthy. I've really resisted writing about it thus far though because it seems so odd. There are not enough details right now to do any kind of meaningful analysis, but Carroll's words set off warning sirens for me and for others. Something just isn't right here. It may be because of Carroll's political beliefs, it may be Stockholm syndrome, or who knows, something more sinister, but whatever it is it will pay to watch this story as more details emerge in the coming days. It just doesn' compute that a released hostage who lived for three months under the threat of death would so emphatically point out that her captors treated her well.

This would explain the peculiarity of the story.
