Free Jill Carroll!

Fortunately, it appears the American reporter is still alive, though likely overwhelmed with fear.

Kidnapped American journalist Jill Carroll appeared in a video aired Thursday on a private Kuwaiti TV channel appealing for her supporters to do whatever it takes to win her release.

In the video, Carroll said the date was Feb. 2.

"I am here. I am fine. Please just do whatever they want, give them whatever they want as quickly as possible," she said. She wore a veil and appeared composed, speaking in a strong voice.

The media's short-term memory has put this story on the backburner, and the Malcontent doesn't wish to be complicit. Godspeed to a truly brave woman.

  1. THe US will never do what they demand. I feel sorry for her, but there is no chance that these demands will be met.

    The best hope is a rescue operation.
