Has Carroll Been Rescued?

Via email tip according to this report on January 24th suspects believed to be involved in Jill Carroll's abduction were arrested.

"Baghdad, 24 Jan. (AKI) - The Iraqi authorities have arrested three people in Baghdad suspected of being involved in the kidnapping of American freelance journalist Jill Carroll. An interior ministry statement said the arrests were made during a raid by the security forces in the Adel neighbourhood where Carroll was seized. The journalist, working for the US daily Christian Science Monitor, was pulled from her car on 7 January and her interpreter was killed. She had been due that day to interview Adnan al-Dulaimi, the leader of the Iraqi Consensus Front movement, a Sunni political grouping.

Qatar-based TV network al-Jazeera last week aired a video ofCarroll in which her captors threatened to kill her unless all female prisoners in Iraq were released within 72 hours.

Carroll, looking strained, is shown apparently speaking to the camera, but the sound-track does not include her voice. Al-Jazeera did not say where it got the tape, but has called for Carroll's release.

A freelance reporter for the Christian Science Monitor newspaper, as well as other news organisations, Carroll is the 31st foreign journalist to be kidnapped in Iraq since the US-led invasion in 2003. More than 40 Westerners and hundreds of Iraqis are being held in the country.

Four Christian peace activists, including a Briton an American and two Canadians, were abducted on 26 November."


Unknown how this bodes for Jill. But let's hope and pray it bodes well.

Haven't seen this hit the MSM yet. Going to do some further checking on it.

UPDATE 1/30: A video appeared to today showing Carroll wearing a veil and weeping. It is dated two days ago. Carroll 'appears' frightened to death in the video and pleading. Still no verification from the MSM or from contacts about the previous report of arrests.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

UPDATE II: Looks like I owe my source big time as yet another tip comes true as the Washington Post is on the target list as well for the CIA Prison leak.

Sniper Attack Las Vegas Music Festival

Police are hunting for the female companion of a lone gunman who killed at least 20 people, including two off-duty police officers, and injured more than 100 injured in Las Vegas on Sunday night.
Officers believe Marilou Danley, who they described as a middle-aged Asian woman, has more information on the man who attacked the Route 91 Harvest Festival on Sunday night before being killed.
That man was named by 9 News as Stephen Paddock, a 64-year-old man from Mesquite, Nevada, who was known to local law enforcement.
Police were reported to be searching his house in the early hours of Monday morning, though there was no indication of a motive.
The Strip was completely shut down after the man, described by police as 'a local' opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay resort and casino.
