Hostage: The Jill Carroll Story

Reporter Jill Carroll was kidnapped by Sunni Muslim insurgents in Iraq on June 7, 2006. She was held captive for 82 days. Carroll -- one of the only kidnapping victims to survive -- is now writing about her experiences for the Christian Science Monitor. In a 10-installment article (along with detailed backgrounds and introduction) Carroll describes first hand the life of the insurgency, it's families, women, children, captors, and her terror, fear, and sometimes hatred of the people who took her. It's a surprisingly candid view of the inside of a terrorist cell -- and she holds no punches, gives no sympathy to their plight. Installment 4 of Hostage: The Jill Carroll Story is up today.
