Remarkable. He didn't know Trump was president but he knew of a Taliban investigation into the Haqqani group that had kidnapped him and the findings of the investigation.

He was a lot closer to his kidnappers than he was to the US news.

Still mileage in this story then.

He originally claimed an infant daughter born in captivity was killed because he didn't agree to something unspecified.

The Taliban said she miscarried and now he says it was a forced abortion.

Possibly this is just a case of one of those anti abortionists nutters using words like murder.

I've mostly been following it through this thread, but he sounds like a general nutter both before and after. My sympathies are with the American girl's parents.

Canadian American family on surviving Taliban captivity: 'We tried to make it fun'
Quote:
They also sought to ease the fear that permeated their lives, worried about the toll it would take on their eldest child. “Obviously with people like this, the idea of a beheading is always on the table – so he certainly knew that this type of thing could happen to his family,” said Coleman.
Uh...er....

“What made me the saddest was that I didn’t have an opportunity to show my children the types of things that I grew up with, playgrounds or zoos,”
I wonder why not...

“My wish for them now is that they never have to face fear in their lives again,

In trouble with the law and in jail currently.

Not exactly a small amount of charges either, alleged events took place between October 14 and Dec 30.
