No connection to the Jill Carroll kidnappers’ demand. We are not dhimmi tribute payers. Move along. Nothing to see here.
I hope all the people who are kidnapped from now on will send a personal note of thanks to the U.S. military for making their kidnapping such an enticing prospect for the jihadists. “U.S. Military Releases Five Iraqi Women,” from AP, with thanks to the Constantinopolitan Irredentist:
The U.S. military released five Iraqi women detainees Thursday, a move demanded by the kidnappers of an American reporter to spare her life, but an official said the release was coincidental.
The women were freed from U.S. custody and delivered to the home of a senior Sunni Arab politician in Baghdad, where they were returned to their families, according to an Associated Press photographer at the scene. They were later driven away in taxis.
