She is a "prisoner of love" says the NY Post.
Ehda'a married Sgt. Sean Blackwell, a U.S. infantryman from Pace, Fla., in August.
But their simple, heartfelt exchange of vows put Sean, 27, in hot water with the Army for defying orders. And it put Ehda'a's life at risk for offending some of her rabidly anti-American countrymen.
Faced with daily death threats, Ehda'a is now living alone, in hiding, waiting to find a way safely and legally out of Iraq.
Her husband can't help. He's restricted to his base, barred from having any contact with his bride. The two haven't been in touch since their wedding...
"The case is twisting our brains and exhausting our resources," said Pensacola immigration lawyer Richard Alvoid.
He explained that because Iraq is a hostile region, the U.S. consular post there doesn't issue visas, so Ehda'a would have to go to Amman, Jordan, to get one.
"But she doesn't want to be stuck in a refugee camp on the Jordanian border and resettled to a third country," he said.
