Let me say that there is no connection between the release and kidnapping of the U.S. reporter. The release was finalized after a review by the Iraqi-U.S. board. My daughter is home now and in good health after spending four months in detention. I'm so happy.

She'll be fine and she will come out very soon because she loves Iraq and she loves Iraqis, so God will never forget her.

We are happy and we thank God for this blessing.
