Jill Carroll Speaks Out Against Uncle Sam's Occupation of Iraq

Since her release from captivity in Iraq, Jill Carroll's frank responses to questions posed to her by the media underscore and illustrate how badly things have gotten for Uncle Sam as its rapacious conquest of Iraq continues to deteriorate.

In a taped interview prior to her release, Carroll said, "I think the mujahedeen are very smart and even with all the technology and all the people that the American army has here, they still are better at knowing how to live and work here, more clever."

When asked to clarify her statement following her release, she added, "It makes very clear that the mujahideen are the ones that will win in the end." Asked whether she had a message to send to Uncle Sam's administrators, she smiled and said, "[Bush] needs to stop this war. He knows this war is wrong... He needs to finally admit that to the American people and make the troops go home."

Patrick Cockburn's report from Mosul in today's Independent further amplifies Carroll's point that Sam has already lost this war.
"The government cannot control the city," said Hamid Effendi, an experienced ex-soldier who is Minister for Peshmerga Affairs in the Kurdistan Regional Government.

He is influential in the military affairs of Mosul province with its large Kurdish minority, although it is outside the Kurdish region. He believes: "The Iraqi Army is only a small force in Mosul, the Americans do not leave their bases much and some of the police are connected to the terrorists." In the days since a suicide bomber killed 43 young men waiting to join the Iraqi army at a recruitment centre near Mosul last week soldiers in the city have been expecting a second attack.
Even as they refuse to admit it, Uncle Sam has already begun to cut and run, retreating to their permanent bases as they intensify their air war and aim to foment a civil war between sectarian Iraqi factions.

Far from blaming the mujahideen for her captivity, Carroll acknowledged the rationale in holding her to obtain the release of Iraqi women routinely tortured and raped in Uncle Sam's Concentration Camps in Iraq. "It shows the difference between the mujahedeen and the Americans, it shows the mujahedeen are good people fighting an honourable fight while the Americans are here as an occupying force treating the people in a very bad way."

From the rapes, to the torture, to the attacks on civilians with chemical and nuclear weapons, to the Psy-Op attacks on mosques, to their creation of sectarian death squads, "treating people in a bad way" has become the only objective Uncle Sam has succeeed in achieving during the occupation.
