Matthew Schrier was kidnapped by al-Qaida in Syria. He believes “Canadian” who @JustinTrudeau posed with was involved

A U.S. photojournalist kidnapped and tortured by al-Qaida in Syria in 2012 laments in a new book that the RCMP has still not arrested any of the Canadians who were allegedly involved.

In The Dawn Prayer, or How to Survive in a Secret Syrian Terrorist Prison: A Memoir, Matthew Schrier writes about “the Canadian connection” to the seven months he was held captive in Aleppo.

A month into his kidnapping, he was brought before three Canadian-sounding jihadists who wanted his online passwords. His credit cards were subsequently used to make thousands of dollars worth of purchases.
