She's not a relative, but Jill Carroll is one of my fellow Americans. When I see an innocent member of my national family under capture and in peril of death from Islamo terrorists, I get angry.
I can't quite understand why any citizen of the U.S. wouldn't be more outraged at Carroll's plight than at that of Jose Padilla or the Gitmo detainees. And I'm quite sure that nobody on the left could explain it to me. It's incomprehensible that some members of the "9/11 was our fault" left will rationalize Jill Carroll's capture as a defensive response to U.S. actions.
That has always been, and will remain, a mindset I simply can not comprehend.
