We detained Iraqi women HOW LONG???
I just read this article about the concerns of the Christian Science reporter who has been held hostage pending the release of "all" several Iraqi women detained by our military.

Whether or not ALL of the Iraqi women held in US custody are released by the deadline, and whether or not the reporter is released, the following excerpt from the above article has certainly opened my eyes. I want to know a LOT MORE about why this *particular* Iraqi woman was held FOR FOUR MONTHS!

Was she treated like a criminal or a POW? Why? What was her charge? Was she ever charged? What are her means of legal recourse for the time spent in US custody? Do Iraqi citizens have ANY rights at all?

Detainees are regularly freed in Iraq following reviews of their cases, a process that can take months, and U.S. officials have said the pending releases were part of the routine procedure and not linked to Carroll's case.

A tearful Siham Faraj confirmed that her 28-year-old daughter, Hala Khalid, returned home Thursday after being arrested with her brother on Sept. 24 during a dawn raid by U.S. forces on their Baghdad home.

"My daughter is home now and in good health after spending four months in detention. I'm so happy," Faraj told The Associated Press in a telephone interview, the sounds of laughter and celebrations being heard in the background.

Faraj also called on the kidnappers of Carroll to release her, saying she is just as innocent as her own daughter.
