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?


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.

Is the lid about to be blown off Able Danger?

Those who have been wishing for a full blown Able Danger investigation are about to get their wish. The "gate" has been unlocked.

9/11 Iraqi Connection

With Democrats calling for yet more investigations into pre-war intelligence, and Republicans like myself pushing back to help their 'sudden amnesia”, the growing stories of Able Danger and even China Gate, are beginning to make news.

The three main theories about why Able Danger hasn't gotten out of the "blog stage", are 1) To hide Clinton era responsibility for stopping the 9/11 attacks, and/or 2) To hide the truth behind China-Gate, or 3) The facts show that there in fact was a direct link between Iraq and 9/11.

Taking either one you can see why the Clinton worshipping MSM for the most part hasn't touched the story. Of the later point, Democrats, the MSM and even some of our investigations state that there was no 'direct' link between Iraq and 9/11. Say otherwise and the MSM will slice and di…

Followup to previous post.

NY Times: 9/11 Commission's Staff Rejected Report on Early Identification of Chief Hijacker

Ok, I've been on the phone now for...oh, about three days, to some old chums in Tampa, checking this story out, asking questions,...etc. So far what I've heard is that IF this story is true, then those who are really in the know in the Intel world are feeling like a bunch of little red-hair step-childred.

Ed. Morissey is ready to hang the 911 Commission out to dry......mmm,

Ed, not so fast my friend.

Again, I am amazed at the vercacity the NY Times and AP is getting on this story, and from the same conservative bloggers who are normally parsing every "dot and tittle" the Times puts out. Who would think?...

Yeah, there is a lot of "anger" because of "Gorelick" fever where the blogshere and conservative media rightfully called attention to her conflict of interest while serving on the commission. But we can't let the "gotc…
