Thank God, she's free

Jill Carroll was finally freed from captivity today, unharmed after three months of being held hostage by Iraqi insurgents/terrorists/fill-in-the-blank. And, in celebration of the moment, NRO's John Podheretz writes this.

John, in case you haven't followed this case or read up about Carroll, she wasn't forced to dress in moderate Muslim garb. She chose to do it to show respect for the Iraqis and for her own safety. The comment is in bad taste.

I think she has a little bit of Stockholm Syndrome. A little Patty Hearst if you ask me.

Well, she didn't go participate like Patty did. She didn't go out and shoot some place up.

I think she was reverting to form and reporting what the facts were. If they didn't hurt her, and treated her respectfully, despite holding her hostage and making her do those videotapes, then it's not so much SS as you and Podman say.
