Jill Carroll is free! I first noted her kidnapping here and linked to the recent PSA calling for her release. As Brian Ulrich notes, Carroll herself doesn't have any idea why she was kidnapped or released; that the release came just after the CPT team release might mean that something interesting is happening. Or it might not. Still, since I didn't think the kidnapping was going to accomplish anything positive for the insurgents or other Iraqis, I'm glad to see that it didn't end badly.
