I think it’s the husband who has (ex) family-by-marriage ties to Al-Qaeda.

Yes.

However, she didn’t fly in, and - at face value - she was exceptionally naive, or perhaps willfully ignorant? Who knows?

Mine does that all the time!

I’d forgotten about her.

Maybe maybe not. Kind of irrelevant to my point which was that the woman wasn't taken their by her husband she made her own stupid decision.

Either way it sounds like a crap place for a holiday, I must say tho, he looks very fit and well, unlike the guys who were released from North Korea.

I'm going to raise it again from my earlier post.
Quote:
He said the Taliban, whom he referred to by their official name – the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan – had carried out an investigation last year and conceded that the crimes against his family were perpetrated by the Haqqani network.
So he discovered the investigation had happened and what the result was in between the dramatic rescue and being on the plane or at some earlier time when in captivity.

This earlier time would have been while held captive by the network investigated by the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan.

The Haqqani network told him the findings against their network? They allowed him contact with those investigating? He saw it on CNN while in captivity and his captors allowed him such freedoms?

Anyone have any theories on this?

Not really captive at all and the rescue was staged?

Adventure holiday. At least it's not Torremolinos.

Yep, well fed and enough penetrative sex to produce 3 children in captivity. That's thoughtful.

Did you see what he looked like before? He took reserves with him it would appear!

Something is most certainly "off". If it smells like sh*t, it usually is.

There's something decidedly fishy about the whole thing. Joshua Boyle's narrative is not helped by his somewhat eclectic collection of beliefs - highlighted by the year or so he spent married to Zaynab Khadr in 2009-10 (he married Ms Coleman the following year). And the louder the various intelligence agencies shout that his visit to Afghanistan had "nothing to do" with his former marriage and was a series of unfortunate coincidences, the thinner becomes my ability to take them at face value...

Very glad to read your voice of reason on this. I keep wanting to check myself, wondering if my cynicism is altogether a fair response.

I must go searching other websites to see if anyone has found any logic, particularly in reference to knowing about the result of the so called Taliban investigation.

Also, can you fit two people and three children in the trunk of a car?

This is - more or less - what I’m thinking too...

For some reason, I can’t quote BristolUk, but I’m thinking the “trunk” of the vehicle MIGHT be one of those lost in translation moments...
