Carroll suspects politician in abduction (Dulaimi)
BOSTON - Reporter Jill Carroll suspects an influential Sunni politician or someone from his Baghdad office may have set up her abduction.

But Carroll's captors also told her Adnan al-Dulaimi, head of the Iraqi Accordance Front, met at least twice with the chief captor, and publicly pleaded for them to let her go.

Dulaimi denies he was involved in Carroll's kidnapping, and further maintains that he paid a ransom for her release, according to a report by The Christian Science Monitor.

Carroll, then a freelance reporter for the Monitor and now a staff member, was abducted 100 yards from Dulaimi's office on Jan. 7, after he failed to show up for an interview. Her Iraqi interpreter, Alan Enwiya, was shot dead.

"Within minutes of my capture, I had suspected Dulaimi," Carroll wrote in the seventh installment of a series about the 82 days she spent in captivity. "The kidnappers were waiting for us when we left his office. They must have known about my appointment ahead of time."
