If the protesters were upset at her sentence before, they are going to be really upset now. I am curious to see their reaction to this pardon.

Good to see the right thing happened. I wonder who can take credit for the successful negotiation here. Also it should be noted that many Muslims thought that the charges were outrageous. Once again, very good outcome.

Very good news but if I was her,I'd get out sharpish.There are extremists who will not be happy about the outcome.

Unless she is guaranteed protection from the few loonies then she is in real danger.

BBC say she will return to the UK today or tomorrow.
Poor woman will now get of the plane into a good ol' great british media maelstrom-the last thing she needs.
Glad her ordeal in Sudan is over.

Like sending a lamb to the slaughter.

Its a good thing she has been freed, but its unfortunate its being publicised so much.

I can see some type of up-set from this, one way or the other.

The whole situation sure is being milked the hell out of by our good old government line towing MSM.
Give her some peace with her friends and family I say.She's probably in shock still.

Ya, I think anyone would be in shock after a ordeal like that. Im glad she was freed, faced no lashes, and wasnt harmed by the extremists calling for blood.

I'm with you I am surprised we haven't heard anything about it yet. I kind of expected the Cartoon Riots all over again.
