Jill Carroll released a statement about her captivity today.
I’m glad to see that Jill has addressed all the critics out there. I’m still puzzled over the criticism she’s received. What did she do but get kidnapped? What is there to criticize? I would have read Barney Lyrics to get out that situation. We’ve seen other kidnap victims make similar statements. Many of them are criticized for not… what? “Toughing it Out”? The folks who are so vehement should try seeing the world with a little more compassion. Compassion, after all, was the reason that Jill went to Iraq in the first place.
