Father of freed Taliban hostage lashes out at her ‘unconscionable’ Canadian husband for taking her to Afghanistan

The father of freed Taliban hostage Caitlan Coleman has blamed her Canadian husband for her kidnapping five years ago.

Jim Coleman said it was ‘unconscionable’ for son-in-law Joshua Boyle to take Caitlan to Kabul, Afghanistan, without telling either of their families when she was five-months pregnant in 2012.

‘What I can say is taking your pregnant wife to a very dangerous place, to me, the kind of person that I am, is unconscionable,’ he told Good Morning America on Friday, a day after the pair were rescued along with the three children they had in captivity.

Coleman, who lives in Stewartstown, Pennsylvania, also criticized Boyle, 34, for refusing to board a C-130 US military plane which was ready to take them home on Thursday.

    She went of her own free will as sad as that is. I do not believe she is any better or different from her husband and suspect both are converts.

    • They both need their heads read.

  • It doesn’t sound like she refused to go to Afghanistan.

    I say shoot them both.

      That is a very economical and earth friendly use of resources, bullets are cheap and effective.
      I bet you didn’t know you were a tree hugger……..;)

      • If I were really being environmentally conscious, I would say throw them into a volcano.

        Ashes to ashes …

    Joshua Boyle is a prick and an ingrate. Instead of thanking the Americans he’s spouting off about how he’s agains U.S. foreign policy. And his wife sits silently on the plane while wearing a beige headscarf. I’m not happy they’re back. With citizens like them who needs enemies. The guy is a loon and his wife is probably damaged for life.

      If she is damaged for life, she is just as responsible for that as he is – she is an independent agent and chose to go along with him.

      • k1962

        I do agree that she is somewhat responsible. However, he seems much more sophisticated than his wife. If I recall correctly, she’s younger than him and I can see someone who is naive and in their early 20’s making a stupid mistake, especially when being led by their manipulative husband.

    Both of them are fools. I think Boyle was the bigger fool of the two here…

    Only a fool would go into modern Afghanistan…
