Frau Ostoff: Spy or Pain in the tail?

The Times online on her return to Iraq Ex-hostage's Iraq return angers her rescue team and then this in the UPI,
Susanne Osthoff, the German archeologist kidnapped by Iraqi gunmen on Nov. 25 and released before Christmas was connected with her country's intelligence service, the BND, and had helped arrange a meeting with a top member of the terrorist organization al-Qaida, possibly Abu Mussab al-Zarqawi himself, according to well informed German sources Sunday.
I'm guessing she's no spy and the German Gov's outrage at her return is real. Talk of here being a spy doesn't help the current hostages much, including the Christian Peace Makers team still out there.
