New York Post ^ | June 5, 2014 | Associated Press

WASHINGTON — The married couple with a taste for exotic travel set out for Central Asia in the summer of 2012, moving as tourists through a region not normally visited by Westerners.

It was a risky venture by any standards, not least because young travelers were expecting their first child. They crossed into Afghanistan where, one day, Joshua Boyle emailed relatives from an Internet cafe in a part of the country he called unsafe.

This clown's first wife was the sister of Omar Khadr. Chances he's just an innocent tourist and not a sleeper?

What the hell is wrong with these ‘worldly’ liberals that they just trek into these republics like they’re Starbucks?? Also, the more important question... Why do these remote hell holes have faster/better video upload capabilities than my own Century Link in Colorado??????

I think we should negotiate a trade.

They give us 5 Taliban, and we’ll take the couple back too.

Liberal IDIOTS!:

“They really and truly believed that if people were loved and treated with respect that that would be given back to them in kind,” said Linda Boyle, Boyle’s mother. “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.”

Actions have consequences... You'll forgive me if I could give rats a$$ about their plight.

Anybody else think the "timing" of this story is suspicious? Just another reason for Barry to empty a few more cells, release a few more of his murderous brothers from GITMO?

People on this thread know that I am not big into conspiracy theory.

But examine these checkable facts:

(1) Bowe Bergdahl's father has consistently made reference to his son and to mysterious "other Westerners" being held by the Taliban.

(2) Bob Bergdahl is on the record as working actively to release all Guantanamo detainees.

(3) This Canadian, Joshua Boyle, was married to the sister of Omar Khadr, the Guantanamo detainee who is now in Canadian prison.

(4) Joshua Boyle voluntarily went to Afghanistan, and long before he left he commonly wore a full, untrimmed beard with a fully shaven upper lip - the classic Wahhabist look.

I do not think it is beyond the realm of possibility that Boyle is still married to his first wife, is a Muslim, is an associate of the Taliban through his family connections (I find it hard to believe that Ahmed Khadr and Omar Khadr - both Islamic mujahideen in Afghanistan - would allow their daughter/sister to marry a kufr), went to Afghanistan to train and to serve as a bargaining chip for his Taliban friends, and is angling to get "traded" for the freedom of his brother-in-law so he can become a sleeper agent in Canada or in his second wife's home of the US.
