Imprisoned Journalist Released in Iraq

via ABC News.

It notes that she is an editor for the Christian Science Monitor.

commentary follows.

My experience with these kind of stories is usually the sympathiser (to the cause of the terrorists) is treated very well. Journalists now seem to be treated very well; (Even if they are not sympathetic.) After all, it is a war of information.

They remind me of the Count in Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events (the movie.)

When he has finally gotten custody of the children (and plans to kill them) they are talking as the Count drives them down a country road. The orphans detest the fact that he treated them like slaves. His response is:

"I've been tough, but fair."

Naturally he is just making sure the orphans don't jump out of the car before he can lock it and have a train run them over.

I wonder what train the Islamists have planned for us?
