Canadian Joshua Boyle and American wife Caitlin Coleman freed by Muslim kidnappers

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.


    Who the hell goes “hiking in Afghanistan”?

    • BillyHW

      People who want $10.5 million dollar payouts.

      An idiot who thought having been married to Omar Khadr’s sister Zaynab would make him one of the cool taliban kids. Apparently not. Now that their hiking trip is over, I would suggest one of those “Biking through Syria” tours.

    • A special kind of snowflake.

    • Clink9

      Obama voters.

      Sorry off topic but do you Canadians go up north and have fun in the wilderness? The legend is that Canada has out of this world trout fishing – if I were Canadian I’d be in pig heaven.

      • Lots of lakes lots of fish.

      • Frances

        The Bow River is also renowned for it’s trout fishing.

        Na, you’d be in liberal heaven and if you are a liberal then you’d be in heaven

    Oh this is going to cost us.

    • He may sue!

      • Alain

        Or act as a good Muslim convert if you know what I mean.

  • moraywatson

    What’s next? Their hot-air-balloon trip across North Korea?

    • Maggat

      Here’s a good twofer. Fill the balloon with the liberal caucus, all the hot air expended will keep it up for—-who cares.

  • canminuteman

    At any time after 9/11 anyone who got into any trouble in a muslim country only has themselves to blame. They knew the risks and took their chances, or they are so stupid that we should let Darwin have his way for the betterment of the species.

    They at least are having children
    What are the rest of you louts doing?!
    Hoping others will do the work of child rearing for you
    ….pah! Latte sippers

    • Malcolm Y

      I was tempted to upvote this because you are right. But since I don’t have children it would be hypocritical.

      • Maggat

        I do, hence the up vote.

  • Exile1981

    I predict they will be a danger to society once back here.

    How much do you want to bet the Pakistani ISI was involved in this, and it was only after the US government promised not to cut the billions in annual US handouts to Pakistan that Pakistan “helped” to get them released?

  • Leave them there.

  • Nermal

    If Muslims living in Canada the last few years are labeled Canadians, why aren’t this couple and their foreign born kids correctly called Afghans.
