From the Wild File

The Independent has a follow up on Yvonne Ridley — the UK reporter held hostage by the Taliban, who then converted to Islam and subsequently was hired and fired by the terrorist-friendly Al-Jazeera network. Ridley hasn’t received an exit visa to leave Dubai. The Independent’s spin is that the US objected to Ridley’s coverage for Al-Jazeera, somehow pressured al-Jazeera to fire her, and now won’t let her go.

Is the Independent following Ridley’s lead, right off the deep end?
