Jill Carroll Released - But from what?

Apparently Jill Carroll has been released. For that we may all be thankful. Thankful that is, IF this story has real merit.

I have my doubts. Those doubts were really fueled when this story reported that Jill might have been rescued back in January, a story I couldn't get confirmation on, but was "curious'.
As I noted back here, something just isn't right about this story. I'm not the only one who's feelers are tingling.

Again, if my suspicions are correct, this wouldn't be the first time a kidnapping has been faked for political points.

Therefore it is going to be interesting to see her interviews in the next few days to see what she says about her captors.

Stay tuned there may be more to the story...

UPDATE: There IS more to the story. I'm still weeding through additional information from some folks who know, but for a little more back ground here is a taste from another blogger. He's close.

UPDATE II: Jawa Report has a video of Carroll taken just before her release. Yet:

"It appears that the video was shot in two sittings over a period of time. In the second portion of the video, Jill Carroll seems much less enthused about what she is saying and does not have the smile and other expressions of the first segment.

In it Jill Carroll seems more than eager to give the 'correct' answers asked by her captors. It's quite sickening some of the answers she gives, but understandable under the circumstances. But, before you accuse Jill of being a victim of Stockholm Syndrome, keep in mind that she was under duress.

For instance, Jill Carroll can be heard saying that the CIA and Americans were not as smart as the mujahidin given the fact that they were unable to rescue her. That her ordeal made it clear that the mujahidin would win the war in the end. She wants the American people to understand the mujahidin as they really are, and not the lies they hear in the media about them being terrorists, etc. The mujahidin are only trying to defend their country, etc. President bush needs to stop this war, etc.....

Very scripted, very much what you would expect the terrorists wanted to hear. No word about the translator these people murdered"


As a commentor noted: "I heard Howard Fineman say {on Imus, this morning] that Jill Carroll was going to be an important player politically, as well as journalistically. That comment put my antennae up,& now you have given me the answer as to why Fineman made that comment. Interesting days ahead, huh?"

Yeah....very interesting.

Update III: Fellow milblogger T-bone agrees:

"As I predicted in one of my earlier posts, Jill Carroll is back alive and well. I feel strongly that the kidnapping was a total scam. I saw her interview today and decided once again that she is a liar. She appeared happy-go-lucky despite being held captive and witnessing her interpreter get murdered. Her words and mannerisms in the interview showed classic signs of deception. I don't feel like breaking it down for you, but suffice it to say that she is full of merde. She refused to be debriefed, and refused to take a military flight out of country. If she doesn't write a book, I'll eat my hat."

Come on, anyone else see it?

UPDATE IV: Errr, she wasn't "raped"
she said so. Sheeeh....'victimized'......cripes...

Coming attractions: By the way, how does a hostage stay in touch with her editor while in 'captivity'?.....

More eyes open at Debbie Schlusser.

UPDATE V: I've been reviewing the The Mujahideen Interview Jill Carroll tape linked here at LGF. I'm also going to get a voice pattern analysis done by a friend of mine, but in all the years I handled interviews (trained in neuro-linguistic programming) and interrogations I've never seen such a relaxed and calm "victim". In particular The last part of the interview I noted is striking and by the way, very few people laugh when making statements under "duress".

"Voice: Do you have a message for Mr. Bush?

Carroll: (Laughs)Yeah, he needs to stop this war. He knows this war is wrong. He knows that it was illegal from the very beginning. He knows that it was built on a mountain of lies and I think he needs to finally admit that to the American people and make the troops go home and he doesn’t care about his own people."

More to come...

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.

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.
