Jill Carroll Coerced By Captors

Apparently, Jill Carroll wants to set the record straight on her recent captivity in Iraq. The Christian Science Monitor, for who she is working, has released her official statement along with their own.

During my last night in captivity, my captors forced me to participate in a propaganda video. They told me they would let me go if I cooperated. I was living in a threatening environment, under their control, and wanted to go home alive. I agreed.

She goes on to discuss her statement on Iraqi Television for the Iraqi Islamic Party and clears the air of a few completely mischaracterizations of her attitude towards the U.S. military.
