Jill Carroll freed

And fortunately she was released unharmed and healthy.

BAGHDAD -- Jill Carroll, the idealistic 28-year-old American reporter kidnapped by gunmen nearly three months ago, has been released unharmed by her captors today in a rare moment of cheer during one of post-invasion Iraq's bleakest stretches.

"I was treated very well," said Carroll, wearing a light-colored headscarf during an interview broadcast on the television channel of the Iraqi Islamic Party, the country's main Sunni Arab political organization. "They never hit me. They never even threatened to hit me. I'm just happy to be free and want to be with my family."

We are all happy for you and your family Jill. Congratulations.
