An American woman and her family, who had been held captive since 2012 by the Taliban-affiliated Haqqani network after being kidnapped while hiking in Afghanistan, were freed, the White House announced Thursday. Caitlin Coleman, 32, was seven months pregnant when she and her Canadian husband Josh Boyle were abducted. President Trump appeared to hint at the news of Coleman´s release during a speech in Coleman´s home state of Pennsylvania. "Something happened today, where a country that totally disrespected us called with some very, very important news," Trump said. "And one of my generals came in. They said, ´You know, I have to tell

I´m happy they have been released, but REALLY? WHO in their right mind, seven months pregnant, takes off on a Hike in Afghanistan? What kind of man takes his wife on that kind of trip? What kind of woman is stupid enough to go? It really begs the question, WHAT EXACTLY were they trying to prove? There are plenty of Beautiful places in the USA to hike. And, where do these people get the money to just take off on a hike in a foreign country?

My total dismay regarding their choice of high adventure in no way diminishes my compassion for them and disdain for their captors. That said what did they think was going to happen? Did they think they could whip out their Lefty credentials, coexist bumper sticker, green peace and PETA membership cards, hope and change "T" shirts and be treated like royalty?

Oh, dear, such a rant I feel coming on.
Wisdom from people who, when saying goodbye, solicitously advise their friends to "you take care, now." These are the people who keep McDonald´s in business, so as not to step outside their low-level comfort zone.
Take care? Whatever happened to applauding initiative, daring, courage, curiosity, adventure, fun?
Take care. Go hide under the bed. It´s safer there, a great place for taking care.
Why did the couple go to Afghanistan and other exotic places? The article didn´t say. There. Saved you the effort reading it. These people doubtless had reasons important to them for undertaking an adventure, a mission, or a "hike," maybe. The reporter didn´t bother to inquire, apparently. Didn´t define "hike." Maybe it was an afternoon walk up the mountainside? And the Colemans, sadly, neglected to consult more sensible and less curious pundits. They, shockingly, didn´t take care, now. The couple also, shame on them, neglected to stop in at the nearest Walgreen´s for birth control refills during their five-year captivity. Shame. Pretty kids, though! It must have been a frightening experience, but all those people taking care now in Las Vegas had a sadder outcome than the Colemans did in Afghanistan. More people have been killed in Chicago than in Afghanistan in the last decade.Whatever.

Afghanistan has some breathtakingly spectacular scenery. And many lovely, warm, welcoming people, my daughter tells me. Kansas may not have spectacular mountains and valleys, but taking care, now, there under the bed, who´s to know? So just go to Kansas, crawl into a safe place, and take care now.

We do not know what happened while they were in captivity - we do not know who the father(s) of the children are - we only know that a US citizen married to a Canadian citizen was released along with three children. I am sure there is a book deal in their future - where we may or may not hear the truth. And probably it would be best we did not hear the truth for a while because it might endanger others.

To those questioning why they had more children, Caitlin was already pregnant when they embarked on this "adventure". But the article also notes:

FTA "My children have seen their mother defiled. Two young children appear in the video with them, and Coleman has told her family that she gave birth to two children in captivity. It was revealed Thursday that Coleman had a third child."

Caitlin Coleman was raped in front of her children and probably her husband as well. The third child (and maybe the second?) is very possibly a result of that.

An article from The Daily Beast in 2012 notes:

"Coleman and her husband met on the Internet in 2011 and soon married. The couple’s family told the Associated Press that they spent months traveling in Latin America, living among indigenous Guatemalans. Boyle grew his beard out, and some children began calling him Santa Claus.“ They really and truly believed that if people were loved and treated with respect that that would be given back to them in kind,” Linda Boyle, Boyle’s mother, told the AP. “So as odd it as it may seem to us that they were there, they truly believed with all their heart that if they treated people properly, they would be treated properly.”

Caitlin´s husband Josh "had previously been married to the sister of Omar Khadr, a Canadian who’d spent 10 years as a prisoner in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. "

I agree with OP´s question about what they were doing in Afghanistan. A second question would be: How were they able to afford all this world travel? There are holes in this story which make it difficult to have much sympathy for these people.

#7, I think you´re on the mark.

Take a look at the before pictures; they weren´t anything like any outdoor enthusiast I´ve ever seen.

They look more like "budding" capitalists in search of community investment opportunities. Aspiring investors in one particular market seem very keen on on varieties found growing in the Hindu Kush.

Now, take another look at the pictures. Connoisseurs, yes? FWIW, I think that was what Bergdahl was up to.

Hillary Clinton was delayed arriving for the filming of the BBC´s Graham Norton Show due to a broken toe. The former US presidential candidate arrived for the recording of Norton´s BBC One show wearing a surgical boot. Mrs Clinton said: "I was running down the stairs in heels with a cup of coffee in hand, I was talking over my shoulder and my heel caught and I fell backwards. "I tried to get up and it really hurt. I´ve broken my toe. I´ve received excellent care from your excellent health service." Mrs Clinton is said to be "very apologetic" after missing her slot on

Fusion GPS to House: We´ll take Fifth

On October 4, the House Intelligence Committee subpoenaed Fusion GPS, the opposition research firm at the center of the Trump dossier affair. On Monday, the company told the House what it can do with its subpoena. Fusion GPS chief Glenn Simpson and two others will "invoke their constitutional privileges not to testify," Simpson´s lawyers told the committee in a letter. The panel shouldn´t even bother to call Simpson to the hearing room, the lawyers said, because he won´t answer their questions under any circumstances. It seems unlikely the House will grant that request. If Simpson and two other GPS officials are

A high-stakes legal showdown is brewing for President Donald Trump, as a woman who said he groped her has subpoenaed all documents from his campaign pertaining to “any woman alleging that Donald J. Trump touched her inappropriately.” The subpoena — whose contents have not been previously reported — was issued in March but entered into the court file last month. The White House did not respond to a request for comment, nor did Trump’s attorney. Summer Zervos, a former contestant on the Trump’s reality TV show The Apprentice, accused Trump of kissing and grabbing her when she went to his bungalow at

On Tuesday the New Yorker published Ronan Farrow’s expose of Harvey Weinstein, describing in detail the famous Hollywood producer’s long history of sexual abuse and assaults of actresses and other women in the movie industry. Coming on the heels of a New York Times article published last Thursday about Weinstein, the Farrow article seems to clinch the case against a major figure in the world of entertainment, media, and politics. The question is why, after years of protecting Weinstein, did the American press publish two pieces about him in less than a week? Was it because after stories detailing the sex

Why didn’t NBC News break the Harvey Weinstein bombshell that ultimately ended up in The New Yorker under the byline of one of its contributors?

At first it sounded like hyperbole, the escalation of a Twitter war. But now it’s clear that Bob Corker’s remarkable New York Times interview—in which the Republican senator described the White House as “adult day care” and warned Trump could start World War III—was an inflection point in the Trump presidency. It brought into the open what several people close to the president have recently told me in private: that Trump is “unstable,” “losing a step,” and “unraveling.” The conversation among some of the president’s longtime confidantes, along with the character of some of the leaks emerging from the White House

About 90 percent of Republican voters eventually supported the political novice Donald Trump by November 2016. Most conservatives saw him as the preferable alternative to the vision and agendas of Hillary Clinton. Perhaps most still do after nine months of his presidency. Yet almost half of the elite conservative establishment remains opposed to Republican President Trump. About a quarter of them, it seems, openly despise him. These are prominent Republican senators, think-tank writers, television pundits, op-ed columnists, and generic public intellectuals. MSNBC and CNN are now homes for disgruntled Republicans or former conservative pundits in the way that those outlets once for

Ms. Waxman writes that Times editors “gutted” a story she reported in 2004 on sexual harassment allegations against Harvey Weinstein. Ms. Waxman’s piece was prompted by a Times investigation published last week that found that Mr. Weinstein had sexually harassed numerous women over nearly three decades, and that he had paid at least eight settlements to these women.

A psychologist taking part in his treatment told TMZ that Weinstein would remain in Arizona for a month or so after his week of outpatient ´intensive therapy´ ends on Saturday. Weinstein was ´invested in the program´ and had focused on ´dealing with his anger, his attitude toward others, boundary work and the beginnings of work on empathy,´ the psychologist told the outlet with Weinstein´s permission. The psychologist downplayed previous reports that the 65-year-old film producer had fallen asleep in group sessions and ranted about conspiracy theories. ´He showed up for all the

Let’s put the Uranium One scandal in perspective: The cool half-million bucks the Putin regime funneled to Bill Clinton was five times the amount it spent on those Facebook ads — the ones the media-Democrat complex ludicrously suggests swung the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump. The Facebook-ad buy, which started in June 2015 — before Donald Trump entered the race — was more left-wing agitprop (ads pushing hysteria on racism, immigration, guns, etc.) than electioneering. The Clintons’ own long-time political strategist Mark Penn estimates that just $6,500 went to actual electioneering. (You read that right: 65 hundred dollars.) By

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) is no fan of President Donald J. Trump, but at a recent awards gala for LGBT youth, the bombastic Democrat made a disturbing claim that she would “take Trump out.” Kyle Olson of the American Mirror reported the statement on Friday, but Youtube pulled down the original video. At the Ali Forney Center gala in New York City, Waters jumped right into the liberal audience’s applause by making the off putting, only a mere four months after multiple Republican members of Congress were gunned down by a democrat mad-man who actually wanted to take them out.

n Monday, Sen. John McCain denounced President Trump’s philosophy, agenda, and conduct. On Thursday, former President George W. Bush did the same thing. Neither mentioned Trump by name, but their target was clear. They echoed former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who spoke out against Trump last year. These three indictments, issued by the men who represented the GOP in the four elections leading up to Trump’s, are more than ghosts of a dead party. They point toward an alternative vision of conservatism.

The major developing stories this week have been so scantily and poorly covered in the mainstream press that you may want an easy primer. To fully understand it you have to look at alternative media because just as Harvey Weinstein counted on complicit enablers -- his colleagues, victims and the press -- Hillary Clinton, Robert Mueller and a cast of characters, including a press determined to cover for them have hidden what occurred. It’s taken some time, to be sure, but the evidence of their wrongdoing is becoming harder and harder to hide. Stalling and misdirection are their last redoubt.
