Things That Have Nothing to do With Jill Carroll 

Clearing up the conflicting press accounts mentioned in my post from last Wednesday, it's official: the US just released 5 female detainees.

The Christian Science Monitor provides quote from the mother of one of the freed women in support of Carroll:

The mother of one of five Iraqi female detainees released Thursday expressed confidence that American journalist Jill Carroll will be released soon.

"She'll be fine and she will come out very soon because she loves Iraq and she loves Iraqis, so God will never forget her," says Siham Faraj, the mother of Hala Khalid Wahid who was detained by US forces in Iraq four months ago.

I hope she's right...
