Teresa Borcz-Khalifa freed

The Polish/Iraqi woman had been kidnapped from her home and held by terrorists for nearly a month. She was freed Friday, and arrived in Poland that evening. She spoke at a press conference in Warsaw on Saturday, saying

"the kidnappers treated me decently. They explained they acted so for religious reasons."

Thank God she's safe. But something just doesn't smell right to me. Anybody else find this all a bit strange? This group has never been heard from before, and can't be connected to Zarqawi. She's married to an Iraqi and has been living there for 30 years. She was suspected of espionage, working for the Polish Embassy while Saddam Hussein was in power.

I have a feeling we'll be hearing more about this.

Jeez, maybe Teresa really WAS/IS in the espionage biz, after all. Her story remains one of the, if not the penultimate, most uncovered of all the recovered hostages.

Never heard about her again. Something fishy.

But was it espionage?

Does she look like a spy to you?
