Jill Carroll's Story

Today, the Christian Science Monitor has published the first part in its series about Jill Carroll's captivity in Iraq. The Monitor is enmeshing the story in drama; predictably, however, Jill is also attuned to the news value of the look inside the Iraqi insurgency. As she notes, it came at a high price, and I think it important that we read and respect it. I'd also call attention to Reporters Without Borders and their ongoing campaigns for journalistic safety and freedom. The situation in Turkmenistan may be of particular concern to American Foorpints readers.
