Stockholm, Eurabia Syndrome

Jill Carroll is free. This is a good thing. On the other hand, her statements concerning her captors indicate that she needs some counselling:

"I was treated well, but I don't know why I was kidnapped,"

In the words of long past his broadcast by date Dick Enberg, oh my.

DOWNDATE: Apparently, Ms. Carroll has repudiated not just her statements in captivity, but those in the interview conducted just afterwards from which my excerpt was taken. I tried to be somewhat reserved in my criticism, and i hope it came across that way. Even if it were Stockholm Syndrome, this is a fairly well understood psychological phenomenon to which otherwise reasonable people can fall prey to. I wish her well.
