Jill Carroll: The Baghdad Syndrome?
You know of the Stockholm Syndrome, that powerful, baffling psychological phenomenon whereby hostages begin strongly sympathizing with their captors' agenda.
Released captive Jill Carroll shows every sign of being similarly smitten.
Last month, the poor woman was on Al Zajeera, sobbing like a mental patient for her life, wearing what looked like a demin shirt and Western civvies.
This month, she sings the praises of the nice mujahedeen gentlemen who threatened her life on global TV, and sports traditional Muslim garb -- a sort of ersatz girlfriend of John Walker Lindh.
Of course I'm happy she's free, and I'm certainly not judging her. God knows she endured a life-altering trauma.
I'm just not buying the I [HEART] Mujahedeens line.
