By KIRK SEMPLE and DEXTER FILKINS

BAGHDAD, Iraq, March 30 — Jill Carroll, the American reporter kidnapped in Baghdad nearly three months ago, was freed Thursday, saying she had spent most of her time in a small room but had been well treated by her captors.

Ms. Carroll, 28, was dropped off in a Sunni neighborhood in western Baghdad at midday and walked into the nearby offices of the Iraqi Islamic Party, a Sunni political group, dressed in a light-green head scarf and gray dress.

Dems Offer To Help Rig New Orleans Elections

Not that this is any news.

From the Associated Press:

DNC makes plans to reach displaced voters

Mar 30, 8:41 PM EST

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The Democratic National Committee is setting up toll-free phone lines and airing ads on black radio stations, hoping to spur participation in next month’s municipal election.

The DNC is the latest group to get involved in the city’s April 22 election. Besides the mayor’s race, city council seats, tax assessors and other key city offices are up for grabs.

Black activists and civil rights groups worry that many evacuees living outside New Orleans may find it hard to vote.

The DNC said its effort was nonpartisan and that it was not supporting any particular candidate. The radio ads will air in Atlanta, Houston and Baton Rouge, major cities with hurricane evacuees.

Muslim Gets 30 Years For Plotting To Kill Bush

This is a story that has gotten remarkably little press.

From the DNC’s Associated Press:

Man Gets 30 Years in Plot to Kill Bush

By MATTHEW BARAKAT
Associated Press Writer

Mar 30, 9:08 AM EST

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) — An American Muslim convicted of joining al-Qaida and plotting to assassinate President Bush was sentenced to 30 years behind bars by a judge who compared him to "American Taliban" John Walker Lindh.

Prosecutors had asked for the maximum – a life sentence – for Ahmed Omar Abu Ali, a 25-year-old U.S. citizen who was born to a Jordanian father and raised in Falls Church.

Authorities said Abu Ali went to Saudi Arabia in 2002 out of hatred for the United States. The Saudis arrested him in June 2003 as he was taking final exams at the Islamic University of Medina.

AP Says Jill Carroll Wasn’t Rescued By Military

And the DNC's Associated Press want to make that perfectly clear:

American reporter Jill Carroll speaks to media after her release from captivity at the Islamic Party Headquarters Thursday March 30, 2006 in Baghdad in this image taken from video. Carroll, who was kidnapped three months ago in a bloody ambush that killed her translator, was released from captivity Thursday and said she had been treated well.

Military Not Involved in Carroll's Release

WASHINGTON – The U.S. military was not involved in the release of American journalist Jill Carroll, Pentagon spokesman Bryan Whitman said Thursday.

Whitman said it is also not yet clear whether the military will play any role in her transportation out of Iraq.

He added, however that there are still five female detainees being held in detention facilities in Iraq.

Cynthia McKinney Punched Capitol Hill Cop

Of course the DNC’s Associated Press do their best to downplay it:

Georgia congresswoman in scuffle with Capitol police

The Associated Press, Mar. 29, 2006

Rep. Cynthia McKinney and a police officer scuffled Wednesday after the Georgia Democrat entered a House office building unrecognized and refused to stop when asked, according to U.S. Capitol Police.

McKinney, a sixth-term congresswoman who represents suburban Atlanta, struck the officer according to one account, a police official said, adding there were conflicting accounts. The officer, who was not authorized to speak publicly about the incident, spoke only on condition of anonymity.

No charges were filed, police said.

Officials in McKinney’s office refused two requests for comment.

Capitol Police spokeswoman Sgt. Kimberly Schneider said only that senior officials have been made aware of the incident and are investigating.

New Orleans To Be Fully Evacuated For Storms

I guess Spring is in the air and everyone is feeling foolishly optimistic.

From the terrorist enablers at Reuters:

New Orleans to be emptied for next storm: officials

Tue Mar 28, 2006

By Ned Randolph

BATON ROUGE, Louisiana (Reuters) – Everyone in New Orleans must evacuate the low-lying city the next time a hurricane threatens and no shelters will be offered for those who stay, officials said on Tuesday.

Hoping to avoid a repeat of the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina when thousands struggled to survive after ignoring evacuation orders, they said planes, trains and buses would be used to move people out and the Superdome football stadium would not be open for refuge.

"Today the population stands around 200,000 to 225,000 people in New Orleans," said Orleans Parish Homeland Security Advisor Terry Ebbert.

Moussaoui Wanted To Testify – For Prosecution

You know that our one party media is hating this.

They were hoping that, despite his confessions, he would get off with a slap on the wrist.

From a very disappointed Associated Press:

Al-Qaida Conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui Offered to Testify Against Himself, Prosecutors Reveal

By MATTHEW BARAKAT
Mar 29, 11:26 AM EST

ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) — In another twist to an already convoluted case, the jury deciding whether al-Qaida conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui will be executed learned that he offered last month to testify for prosecutors against himself at his death penalty trial.

He also told agents he did not want to die in prison, the jury was told Tuesday.

The disclosure, which came at the end of the testimony phase of Moussaoui's trial, provides the firmest evidence yet that 37-year-old Frenchman is seeking to derail his own defense in an effort to obtain martyrdom through execution.

Fight Between Moslem Clerics Kills 24

Another Religion Of Peace moment.

From the DNC's Associated Press:

Pakistani officials load dead body on a truck in Badshahkili near Peshawar, Pakistan, Tuesday, March 28, 2006. A religious rivalry that started as a battle for the airwaves between two Islamic preachers with their own FM radio stations escalated into bitter fighting that left at least 24 people dead.

2 Dozen Killed In Pakistan Radio Battle

March 28, 2006

BADSHAHKILI, Pakistan — A battle for the airwaves between two Islamic clerics with their own FM radio stations in Pakistan has escalated into fighting that's killed at least 24 people.

The violence in Pakistan's northwestern frontier with Afghanistan raises new doubts about the government's grip over the lawless region, where Islamic radicals wield growing influence.

The fighting broke out late Monday and continued into Tuesday as the rival Islamic factions traded fire with mortars, rocket-propelled grenades, assault rifles and hand grenades.

More French Protests Against Employment Law

Man, they are not kidding. They really don't want to have to work.

The latest on their seemingly never-ending demonstrations, from the DNC's Associated Press:

French Protesters Pour Into the Streets

By JAMEY KEATEN, Associated Press Writer

PARIS – Tens of thousands of protesters poured onto France's streets and absent workers hobbled transport services Tuesday in the first nationwide strike against a new labor law for youths, increasing pressure on the embattled prime minister to withdraw the contested measure.

Paris and other cities deployed thousands of police to prevent a possible resurgence of violence that marred previous demonstrations against the jobs contract. Marches took place in scores of cities and towns.

"We have to defend the rights that were won by our ancestors and which the current government is trying to take away," said Maxime Ourly, a literature student who joined thousands protesting on Paris' Left Bank.

John Kerry Heinz Hates Tomato-Based Products

From Page Six of the New York Post:

KERRY’S ROOM SERVICE

Kerry requires Poland Spring water, down pillows for his hotel bed, and the ability to order movies on-demand, according to Web site The Smoking Gun. "JK (for the time being) will not be eating spicy food or anything containing tomato, citrus or chocolate," reads a 2004 campaign memo obtained by the site.

Another section warns, "NEVER order: Tomato-based products OR sandwiches." For dinner, Kerry favors meatloaf with mashed potatoes, roasted chicken, and Szechuan string beans – although he also likes filet mignon, cooked medium.

Kerry’s wife, ketchup heiress Teresa Heinz Kerry, wants a "heavenly bed" in a Starwood hotel suite, "good air circulation (no blowing heat)," and a fruit mix. For dinner, Heinz Kerry "loves stone crabs" but "NO TUNA, HALIBUT, OR SWORDFISH."

Afghan Christian Convert Has Now Disappeared

Hmmmm.

Supreme court judge Ansarullah Mawlavizada holds a copy of Bible that belongs to Abdur Rahman, who converted from Islam to Christianity.

Afghan Convert Vanishes After Release

By AMIR SHAH, Associated Press Writer

KABUL, Afghanistan – An Afghan man who had faced the death penalty for converting from Islam to Christianity quickly vanished Tuesday after he was released from prison, apparently out of fear for his life with Muslim clerics still demanding his death.

Italy’s Foreign Minister Gianfranco Fini said he would ask his government to grant Abdul Rahman asylum. Fini was among the first to speak out on the man’s behalf.

Rahman, 41, was released from the high-security Policharki prison on the outskirts of Kabul late Monday, Afghan Justice Minister Mohammed Sarwar Danish told The Associated Press.

Moussaoui Was Supposed To Crash Into The WH

I guess this is why his attorneys and his fans in our one party media didn’t want him to testify.

From the DNC’s Associated Press:

Moussaoui Says He Was to Hijack 5th Plane

By MATTHEW BARAKAT, Associated Press Writer

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Al-Qaida conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui testified Monday that he and would-be shoe bomber Richard Reid were supposed to hijack a fifth airplane and fly it into the White House as part of the attack that unfolded Sept. 11, 2001.

Moussaoui’s testimony on his own behalf stunned the courtroom. His account was in stark contrast to his previous statements in which he said the White House attack was to come later if the United States refused to release a radical Egyptian sheik imprisoned on earlier terrorist convictions.
