I was thrilled to hear the news about the release of the peace activists in Iraq. Of course this has renewed my hope that Jill’s turn will be next. Meanwhile, a US military spokesmen spoke of the ongoing rescue operations in Iraq:

A US military spokesman says a raid to free three Christian peace activists in Iraq may lead to other hostage rescue "operations." Major General Rick Lynch says the operations will "probably" be a result of what investigators are learning now. When asked about freelance journalist Jill Carroll, Lynch says he has no information he can discuss. Except for videotapes delivered to Arab TV outlets, Carroll hasn’t been seen since she was kidnapped in Baghdad in January.
