The Christian Science Monitor
has published a brief thank-you note
to the US government for its efforts on behalf of reporter Jill Carroll. Basically, despite what people like Jurassic Pork
would have you believe, the Evil and Incompetent (or Corrupt) Bush administration was quietly working behind the scenes to free the kidnapped journalist.
So while the children were throwing hissy fits, the grown-ups were getting things done. As per usual.
