Carroll repudiates statments made immediately after release

Former hostage Jill Carroll disavowed comments she made immediately after her release earlier this week. She also said she was forced to make a video-taped anti-American statement the night before her release which ended up posted on an Islamist website. Soon after her release, Carroll said she had not been mistreated or threatened by her captors. Today, she had this to say:

"At any rate, fearing retribution from my captors, I did not speak freely. Out of fear I said I wasn't threatened. In fact, I was threatened many times."
