I think you need to check your assumptions.

(1) She may be a victim of Stockholm Syndrome, wherein captives see their captives through an optimistic lens. This would be a coping mechanism, not brainwashing.

(2) She may merely be stating a fact, namely, that she was not harmed while held captive, and any imputation of sympathy for her captors is unsubstantiated.

It is not clear to me that she is complimenting (Althouse's phrase) her captors or suffering from brainwashing.
