Joshua Boyle, Caitlan Coleman: Why Did We Rescue Muslim Convert Al-Qaeda Couple?

By Debbie Schlussel

Joshua Boyle with Al-Qaeda Wife #1 Zaynab Khadr

No tears for Joshua Boyle and Caitlan Coleman. I wish they hadn’t been rescued. They’re the “Canadian-American” couple who spent five years as hostages with the Taliban and were freed while I was away for the last of the Jewish holidays. Sympathetic news about and interviews with them continue to come out, none of it mentioning the real story about this treasonous couple. You should be upset that American resources were used to free these cretins.

Over the years, I’ve made clear my feelings about the pinata of leftist, America-hating “Americans” and “Westerners” who get caught by Iranian, North Korean, Syrian, ISIS, and other evil forces while they are “vacationing,” “hiking,” “reporting,” and/or “backpacking.” If you’re dumb enough to go to these places, you know–or at least, should know–that you’re going there at your own risk.

I had that view about Al-Gore-employed “journalists” Laura Ling and Euna Lee, who were captured and held in North Korea. I said the same about Shane Bauer, Sarah Shourd, and Josh Fattal–three more fake “journalists” who were caught “hiking” in Iran and imprisoned. I said the same about various so-called “journalists” and “relief workers” who hated America (and some of whom converted to Islam) but were suddenly “Americans!” when they were about to be beheaded by their beloved ISIS, whom they’d traveled to Syria to cover as the “liberal democrats” of Islam or whose wounded they traveled to help. The included James Foley and Steven Sotloff. And I said the same about American Otto Warmbier, who was detained in North Korea and died as a result of torture there. Who the heck goes on a “tour” of North Korea? You have to be a complete idiot to do so.

Who told them to go there? I call these people, “Stupid Americans & The State Department That Loves Them.” They’re actually useful idiots. Or worse. They know what they are doing, and we should leave all of these people on their own.

And I definitely feel that way about Boyle and Coleman. They went to Afghanistan to help Muslim extremist families there, in towns to which even U.S. troops wouldn’t venture because they were so dangerous. Boyle and Coleman were captured by the Taliban when they were “backpacking.” You have to be a complete moron (or America-hating Islamic extremist) to travel to the middle of Afghanistan to live and then go backpacking. I mean, what could go wrong? But Boyle and Coleman aren’t just stupid. They’re evil, and they hate the West. We know this because their statements and activities have been documented, though completely omitted by mainstream sources reporting on their rescue and return to North America.

There are more than a few things the media isn’t telling you about these people that are glaring omissions and very disturbing. To wit:

* Boyle, a Muslim convert, was married to Zaynab Khadr, the burqa-wearing daughter of Ahmed Khadr, a major Al-Qaeda financier and terrorist and sister of four Al-Qaeda terrorists. Those terrorist brothers include Abdullah Khadr, who admitted buying weapons for Al-Qaeda, and Omar Khadr, who murdered an American soldier (Sgt. Chris Speer) and blinded another (Layne Morris). The former Mrs. Boyle, Ms. Khadr, praised and defended the 9/11 attacks, and she and her entire family lived with Osama Bin Laden in Pakistan and Bin Laden attended Ms. Khadr’s second wedding (she was married 4 times; Boyle was hubby #3). Her mother is Palestinian, by the way.

* Boyle served as spokesman for the Khadr terrorists, defending their Al-Qaeda terrorist activities, including the murder and injuries caused by Omar Khadr in his attacks. (As you may know, Trump friend Justin Trudeau recently gave Khadr $10 million. Trump was informed about this move ahead of time and did nothing to stop it.) Boyle also praised and defended his then-wife’s pro-9/11-attack comments. And he’s friends with Moazzam Begg, another Gitmo Al-Qaeda terrorist. Boyle’s despicable.

Muslim Convert & Al-Qaeda Bride Caitlan Coleman with One of Her Sons @ Canadian Hospital Last Week

* Caitlan Coleman was well aware of her husband’s statements, behavior, and activities on behalf of an Al-Qaeda family, when she converted to Islam and married him. Yes, she’s essentially an Al-Qaeda bride. And she enjoys it, apparently. She still dons a hijab–the Islamic female headscarf–and refused to board an American plane or land in America, even though it was American information that resulted in her rescue. She was seen wearing a beige hijab on the plane back to Canada. And her most recent photo, in a Canadian hospital, also shows her wearing the Islamic headgear. She’s one of them. NOT one of us. That’s the only kind of person that marries an Al-Qaeda spokesmodel and moves to Taliban territory to–ya know–“help the people.” (By the way, the pan-jihadist couple met on Star Wars fan sites, which goes to show you, as I’ve always argued, that Western pop culture does nothing to stop jihad or open anyone’s eyes.)

* The couple gave their kids Muslim names. Now, those Muslim kids will grow up in Canada to spread their Islamic hatred of the West and have their own kids to further spread the virus.

Boyle and Coleman may be, respectively Canadian and American born. However, they are anything but Western in their views and ideology. What causes a pregnant woman and her husband to leave the comfort of the West and risk it all, including their unborn child, to help Muslims who hate America–who hate the West? The couple’s own similar hatred of America and the West, that’s what.

I’m saddened that Donald Trump used so much effort and resources to get this couple to safety and used their rescue as a test of our strained relationship with Pakistan.

America and the West would have been best served had Joshua Boyle and Caitlan Coleman died in Taliban captivity.

Then Mr. Boyle could have met the 72 virgins his religion and preferred culture promises him. And Coleman could’ve enjoyed her chosen life as a sex slave of allah.

President Trump should’ve let them rot in Afghanistan, where they chose to go . . . and where they deserved a life sentence.

Pukes like this silly, boy freak are crystal clear to me. He embraces Islam on every level of filth it embraces. And his nasty Kalbeh Bride showcases YET AGAIN “Women Standby”. This Islamic freak (redundant) loved Islam so much he impregnated his weirdo wife in captivity (on a moldy mattress…) for his fellow ROP slime to hurt and abuse. He’s in the upper echelon of the FETID SCUM tier.

What troubles me even more (because I agree with DS…she is why I see it so clearly, BTW…) is that most people refuse to see what is annoyingly obvious about this grotesque couple. They will waste sympathy and tears on this despicable couple who have babies to be abused by Islam…and when the babies make it thru’ the decrepit Moooooooooslim gauntlet, they start infesting and infecting the world with their Satanic ways.

The best people to have to face the heinous sword of Islam are other Moooooooooslims or dhimmis. Their just-desserts demise shelters and saves a truly innocent victim from the scourge of Islam.

    They become Americans when they need to be bailed out, and that is it.

    You said it Skunky. Both of these egg sucking cretins deserve no sympathy period.

AGREE with you 100%. Is this husband a deep cover Muslim pig out to attack Canada? or just a clown hoping for a big payout from the canuck Socialist Govt.

bobby1122 on October 23, 2017 at 7:39 pm

Hi Dear Debbie! Thanks for sharing the info! God bless! very sincerlly Tirdad.

TIRDAD GHARIB on October 24, 2017 at 9:30 am

UFB- Thanks for the real story.

unholyone on October 24, 2017 at 9:35 am

When this story of their “rescue” hit the news the other day, something didn’t pass the smell test. I thought of Debbie, and Mr. Adamo, because of the discussions we’ve been having lately about the U.S. government lying to its citizens on a regular basis since about, ohhhhhhh, 539 B.C.?

The beat goes on. What can I say? Getting back to the farm won’t really fix anything for me. I keep telling myself suicide isn’t an option. I guess getting irradiated is.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on October 24, 2017 at 9:59 am

    Alfredo — NO suicide!!!! Correct thinkers like you are too valuable!!! Love your informed comments!!!

    Songbird on October 24, 2017 at 12:08 pm

      Thank you SO much, that’s very nice. Nooooo, there won’t be any suicide for THIS old horse, Wilburrrrr. I left all thoughts of that ridiculous crap behind well over 30 years ago.

      As I was telling someone the other day on e-mail, this isn’t The Kingdom, it’s basic training. I never served, but from what Ah heerd tell, basic training sucks. And THIS time right now really sucks more and more every day, what a pounding as America comes crashing down from the weight of politically correct idiocy, and lies.

      But billions have lived and died before me, and at least 90% of the people on earth right now have a harder life than me.

      I told this friend, every time I look up into the sky, I hear “you keep telling everyone you’re a locomotive, right?” “Uhhhhhhhh, yeah?” “Then, shut up and pull your train!!!”


      Alfredo from Puerto Rico on October 24, 2017 at 12:34 pm


    Que pasa?

    Why would you contemplate suicide?

    What radiation danger are you referring to?

    Did you lose everything in the hurricane in Puerto Rico?

    Maybe I should share my own story.

    I’ve actually had someone question why I didn’t commit suicide, because my own personal trial was so horribly hopeless and utterly humiliating.

    Yet, with the help and inspiration of Heavenly Father, I was able to overcome everything and not only survive, but prosper.

    Suicide is NOT the answer!

    No matter what happens, life goes on, and is not entirely hopeless.

    Do you believe in God?

    Do you believe your spirit continues to live even after your physical body has died?

    Then how would you explain to our Heavenly Father your supposed justification for the cold blooded, premeditated murder of a human being (i.e., yourself)?

    Please hang on.

    If you wish to, Debbie knows how to contact me.

    John Robert Mallernee on October 24, 2017 at 1:03 pm

Hi Debbie,

I saw you tweeting about reading and I thought I’d check out your website. I really like it. Looks like Debbie has come a long way!

Building a mailing list like you are is so important too, I think people would really like to be signed up to what you have to share.

Good job on the social buttons, social media is so powerful these days

You should consider installing an SEO plugin like Yoast or something, theres loads of good free ones.

Also places like axtschmiede.com are worth checking out.

John on October 24, 2017 at 11:51 am

That Boyle has the look of a ’60’s hippie (long hair with flowers therein, beard, somewhat schlumpy in appearance) should have been the tipoff to the average American that something’s not right about the “official” narrative put forth by the media.

Concerned Patriot on October 24, 2017 at 12:13 pm

When Debbie puts up the reply that’s caught in the filter, Colonel Mallernee and Songbird will be able to see what I said in response to Songbird a couple hours or so ago.

Yes, I’ve been attempting to stumble along in the path of The Lord since 9/10/1984. I also have a nearly five year record of saying certain things here. Sometimes meaning can become disjointed if a full explanation doesn’t accompany something I’ve alluded to in the past.

But thanks to all concerned. No worries, all’s quiet on the western front. Or something like that.

As for irradiation, we’re being surrounded, and pretty soon, all those surrounding us will have nukes.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on October 24, 2017 at 1:38 pm


DOUBLE hmmmmmmmm.

Relax, two comments of mine caught in the spider web. All will be explained.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on October 24, 2017 at 4:29 pm

Debbie, as always, nails the sick, decadent psychology of Westerners who give up everything for Allah. I often have wondered what goes on inside the minds of Muslim converts, fully aware of what that religion teaches and what its adherents do in its name. This “backpacking couple” is nothing more than a pair of repellent ISIS wannabes who trusted their faith a little too much, but inevitably learned nothing from the experience.

I will have to re-read William James’ classic work on the psychology of religious experience.

Primetime on October 24, 2017 at 9:59 pm

Anyone with common sense knows that even if you won an all-expenses-paid trip to such destinations as Pakistan, Sudan, Lebanon, and Syria, you should decline and tell the sponsor where to go.

This article also demonstrates that the U.S. State Department is part of the Deep State apparatus (along with the CIA and the FBI) that is riddled with moles dedicated to serving America’s enemies.

This is why I’m pleased that it looks like President Trump will follow through on his pledge to release some of the hidden JFK assassination files. This is an important decision because the Deep State has been vehemently opposed to revealing anything about the crime. Trump will be the first president in decades to permit the release of some of the JFK assassination documents. However, given the CIA’s and FBI’s long-standing opposition to disclosure, any information that demonstrates that the official narrative was false will almost certainly be redacted under the bogus claim of “national security.” For example, the CIA had a “201” file on Lee Oswald and the circumstances surrounding that file indicate that Oswald was working either for or on behalf of the CIA, a view which is also supported by the fact that some of the key people in Oswald’s life were connected to the CIA, including Oswald’s friend George de Mohrenschildt (who also knew George H.W. Bush, former CIA Director and President) and Ruth Paine, who befriended the Oswalds, stored Lee Oswald’s personal items in her garage, and, most importantly of all, placed Oswald in the Texas School Book Depository job. Ruth Paine’s father worked for the CIA, her sister was employed by the CIA, and her husband Michael’s mother was connected to none other than Warren Commissioner, Allen Dulles through her lifelong friendship with Mary Bancroft who worked side by side with Allen Dulles as a World War II spy in Switzerland and became his mistress. The CIA simply has too much at stake and too much to hide to permit disclosure of its direct role in JFK’s murder to be revealed.

Ralph Adamo on October 25, 2017 at 2:50 pm

    It’s funny Ralph that you mentioned former President and CIA Chief GHWB. Thanks to the lecherous ignoramus Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment fallout he’s the latest to be accused of improper conduct. So far two women have come forward and accused the ex-president of grabbing their behinds and making improper jokes about it. Now it seems women are coming out of the wood work and feeble old men suffering a debilitating disease that confines them to wheelchairs are targets to get your name in the news.

    Ken B on October 26, 2017 at 2:03 pm

    Update on Trump’s decision on JFK files. As I anticipated before certain documents were released, Trump would allow the CIA and FBI to redact or block the production of self-incriminatory documents:

    “However, given the CIA’s and FBI’s long-standing opposition to disclosure, any information that demonstrates that the official narrative was false will almost certainly be redacted [or withheld] under the bogus claim of “national security.”

    Although I don’t have expertise in governmental law, I know enough to know that the law does not give the CIA and the FBI the right to be sole determiners of what constitutes a “national security” interest. Otherwise, the CIA and the FBI would always be able to conceal their own failures and criminal activity with impunity. Clearly, our governmental system has checks and balances that provide for oversight of their activities. But Trump is too weak or too fearful to demand such oversight.

    Of course, the notion that ANY documents connected to the JFK assassination could be a matter of “national security” after 54 years is absurd, but this would hardly be the first time that the CIA and the FBI have offered such absurd arguments to do what they want to do.

    I know that many of you don’t care about this murder that happened nearly 54 years ago and you fail to see its relevance to events happening today. But the fact is that the JFK murder has a lot to do with events today. JFK even warned America about the dangers of such secrecy in the audio/video below. (Please ignore the attention-getting title of the video. JFK’s speech, though important, was not what got him killed.)


    Have a good weekend, all.

    Ralph Adamo on October 27, 2017 at 1:21 pm

Let me see. I’m planning on taking my dream vacation somewhere great next summer. One my list I have Hawaii, The Bahamas, Orlando, St Thomas, Aruba, North Korea, Afghanistan, Yemen and Iran. Now ladies and gentlemen which of these do you think good old Ken B wants to take his family. If you guessed the last three then as my kid says “you cra, cra!” There is no way in hell(aka Frederica Wilson’s hat closet) that I’d set foot in anywhere you have crazy Muslim terrorist groups just wondering around ready to snatch American’s. Or in the case of #6 a backward country where if you go there you come back not right in the head due to “not” being tortured. The wackos Boyle and Coleman deserved to stay in Ashcanistan since they seem to hate the West so much. In my humble only the dumbest of the dumb(I know liberal and dumb are synonyms) would go to the last four places I mentioned especially if you’re pregnant. My take also is if you want to join groups like Al Qaeda, Hamas or Boko Harem don’t get mad when you get a MOAB dropped on your head.

Ken B on October 26, 2017 at 2:25 pm

Frederica Wilson’s hat closet.


Alfredo from Puerto Rico on October 26, 2017 at 2:38 pm

One day back in early 1968, my mother, sister and I were new on the Lower East Side. We lived in Masaryk Towers, which for all its good intentions, became a glorified project development in a very short time. We were surrounded by projects anyway.

It was a rough part of my life, and the place where I woke up on January 27, 1972 to find out about Foster and Laurie being shot in the back just a few blocks away. The neighborhood was scary enough before that.

Anyway, the three of us went up to Grand Street, because my Jewish mother knew that Delancey Street, Grand Street and the immediately surrounding areas reaching all the way to East Broadway were Jewish enclaves, particularly the Grand Street area.

We were standing around on Grand Street, wondering which side street we should explore next, when none other than the at that time totally unknown Bella Abzug came up to us with a big smile on her face, and greeted us. She was dressed in the flamboyant style, including trademark hat, she would soon become famous for.

Within a short while, she had introduced herself, explained what she was up to (campaigning), and the rest is history. Or as the lefty friend whose house I’m watching and working in right now said recently, “the real deal, Red Diaper Baby.”

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on October 26, 2017 at 4:57 pm

    Alfredo, Bella Abzug may have been a red diaper baby, as your friend mentioned, but from what I can tell she was unlike leftists today in that she remained a Zionist and a defender of Israel. See, for example, https://israeled.org/bella-abzug/.

    I suspect that the same might have been true of many leftists from that time period. But somewhere along the line, the anti-Israel adherents must have hijacked the left wing so completely that it became a permanent plank in the leftist agenda. Today, if you’re a leftist, it virtually goes without saying that you despise Israel and/or you make lovey-dovey with its enemies (which is tantamount to the same thing).

    I’d be interested in learning when and how that change–if it really was a change–came about. Any thoughts? Maybe Debbie has an idea about that.

    Ralph Adamo on October 26, 2017 at 5:55 pm

Yeah, I know what you mean. I was too uninterested in stuff like that, and just a kid (11 1/2) when we met Bella, to really get it. But generally speaking, I have been referring to the period from November 22, 1963 to December 31, 1969 as the time of The Cultural Pancake Flip.

I have been making that reference for about the past 15-20 years. I would think that the ideological change could be found in that period.

Remember, it was only a few years later that the world learned, through the Munich Olympics, who the so-called “Palestinians” were, and what their supposed “plight” was. So, I would guess the ideological change would have happened during The Cultural Pancake Flip.

I do know that I heard grownup intellectual types refer to “U.S. Imperialism” a lot during that period. At some point that was also linked with the phrase “Israeli aggression,” although I don’t recall exactly the first time I heard that.

Where’s Little Al when you need him?

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on October 26, 2017 at 7:02 pm

There is much more to the story. Interestingly we hardly hear about them

Steve Gardality on October 27, 2017 at 1:44 am

I agree w/ you, Debbie. On what grounds does President Trump criticize the release of Bowe Bergdahl from the Taliban, when he goes out of his way to get the Pakis to release Boyle/Coleman?

And why did Boyle/Coleman need rescuing? Wouldn’t the Taliban be nice to them, since they had embraced Islam and procreated 3 Muzzies for them?

Also, the State Department (hopefully after being purged of Islamists), should issue a travel advisory to ALL Muslim countries – be it Afghanistan, F**kistan, Niger, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Turkey, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, et al, and make it clear to all US citizens that if anybody is dumb enough to go there, they won’t be rescued. Only that will stop those traitors from going there.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on October 27, 2017 at 10:20 pm

    Well, Alfredo, they made a successful musical about a barber who slits his customers’ throats and then transports the bodies nearby to make meat-pies, so why not about this stuff?

    I’d like to note that one of the interesting documents that the CIA reluctantly released in the current batch was the record of a deposition given before the presidential Commission on CIA Activities in 1975 by Richard Helms, who had served as the agency’s director. After a discussion of Vietnam, David Belin, an attorney for the Warren Commission, turned to whether the CIA was involved in Kennedy’s killing.

    “Well, now, the final area of my investigation relates to charges that the CIA was in some way conspiratorially involved with the assassination of President Kennedy. During the time of the Warren Commission, you were Deputy Director of Plans, is that correct?” Belin asked.

    After Helms replied that he was, Belin then asked: “Is there any information involved with the assassination of President Kennedy which in any way shows that Lee Harvey Oswald was in some way a CIA agent or agent…”

    But just when you looking for the answer, the page magically goes BLANK! Helms’ answer would have been “Yes,” “No,” or “I don’t know.” But the CIA is withholding the answer on “national security” grounds.

    Of course, the existing documentation and evidence already show that Oswald WAS, in fact, working for the CIA.

    As I already noted, we know from earlier documents that the CIA had a “201” file on Lee Oswald and the circumstances surrounding that file indicate that Oswald was working either for or on behalf of the CIA. Most of the key people in Oswald’s life were connected to the CIA, including Oswald’s friend George de Mohrenschildt (who also knew George H.W. Bush, former CIA Director and President) and Ruth Paine, who befriended the Oswalds, stored Lee Oswald’s personal items in her garage, and, most importantly of all, placed Oswald in the Texas School Book Depository job. Ruth Paine’s father worked for the CIA, her sister was employed by the CIA, and her husband Michael’s mother was connected to none other than Warren Commissioner, Allen Dulles through her lifelong friendship with Mary Bancroft who worked side by side with Allen Dulles as a World War II spy in Switzerland and became his mistress.

    But we also know that on September 7, 1963, less than 3 months before JFK’s murder, Oswald met with David Atlee Phillips, who was CIA’s chief of operations for the Western hemisphere, at the lobby of the Southland Building in Dallas. Now, just what was the CIA’s Chief doing at a meeting with a man who was soon to be placed in a job at the Texas School Book Depository? And how come the CIA never told the Warren Commission about all of their files on Oswald LONG prior to the assassination? And how did their representatives get away with lying under oath?

    The JFK actually has a LOT to do with what’s going on today and the betrayal of America from within. Until the public demands that their elected leaders take action from within to make sure that crime does not pay, the criminals from within will surely continue to betray America.

    Ralph Adamo on October 28, 2017 at 10:47 pm

Ahhhhh, la musica, la musica de Los Four Tops, with . . .

Speaking of Sweeney Todd, I saw it on Broadway about 35 years ago with my second wife, starring Angela Lansbury. Yeah, us Noo Yawkiz know all ’bout grindin’ people up an’ puttin’ ’em in Sabrett carts, don’t we?

A little mustard, some onions, a nice soft bun, nobody knows nuttin’ ’bout nuttin’.

Alfredo from Puerto Rico on October 29, 2017 at 11:56 am

    You saw Angela Lansbury on Broadway? Lucky you. I think she’s one of the best actresses in the last 80 years. Though nominated for Academy Awards for several performances she didn’t get an Oscar until the Academy finally got around to awarding her an Honorary one a couple of years ago.

    If you really want to see the difference between great acting and merely good or competent acting, compare Lansbury’s performance as the Eleanor Shaw character in “The Manchurian Candidate” (1962, also starring Frank Sinatra, Laurence Harvey, and James Gregory) with Meryl Streep’s performance in the 2004 version (also starring Denzel Washington and Liev Schreiber). You can see YouTube clips showing each.

    Putting aside Streep’s politics and focusing purely on her performance, I don’t find her portrayal convincing. On the contrary, in several instances she exhibits an acting flaw known as “indicating,” which means that she was simulating the emotions depicted but was not actually experiencing them or effectively conveying them. There is only one way to convincingly act real emotion in film, and that is, to actually FEEL real emotion. It doesn’t matter what acting technique an actor or actress uses as long as it gets them there.

    Now watch Angela Lansbury in the role. For the duration of that movie she IS Eleanor Shaw, conveying the panoply of emotions inherent in her character. Now THAT is acting.

    This reminds me of a funny story involving Dustin Hoffman and Laurence Olivier. This happened during their making of “Marathon Man” (1976).

    Hoffman was trained and worked best applying the techniques of “method acting” to bring out his character’s emotions. And I will grant that method acting has worked well for Hoffman during his long career on stage and screen, though method acting often involves significant preparation time. Olivier, however, was not a method actor and used other means of rendering genuine emotions.

    One day on the set, Olivier arrived a bit later than usual, but quickly got ready to do his scene with Hoffman, who had spent considerable time tapping into his character’s emotions via method acting techniques. Olivier turned in a spellbinding performance. After the take, Hoffman told Olivier how great his performance was and then asked Olivier how he was able to get into character so quickly. Olivier replied, “It’s called acting, my son.”

    There’s also a similar true story involving Andy Garcia and Sean Connery on the set of “The Untouchables.” Director Brian De Palma spent the day shooting a scene with Garcia and others, getting their close-ups and the coverage needed so the scene could be put together in the editing room. Then, Connery strolled in near the end of the day, having played 18 holes of golf. De Palma then shot his close-ups, one take, and the master shot of Connery wandering the room giving each man his advice, one take. The other three actors were amazed; they spent all day working, while Connery did two takes at the end of the day and played golf the rest of the time. They asked Connery how he was able to do this. “This isn’t my first barbecue,” he said with a sly smile.

    Ralph Adamo on October 29, 2017 at 6:19 pm

I completely agree! These two went into dangerous territory – with Mrs Boyle 8 months pregnant. Perhaps her husband thought they wouldn’t take a pregnant woman hostage, or perhaps he planned for his child to be a martyr – if they were taken hostage and the newborn died as a result?
In any case, these two were IN NO WAY the innocents they make themselves out to be. I’m shocked that, after they were rescued, they refused to take an American plane home. Any normal rational person would take ANY MEANS POSSIBLE to get home, whether it’s a US plane, Russian, Canadian, or Chinese. Who cares? It will get you home! This is no time to play politics.
As a Canadian I’m embarressed that they are here – and my tax money is going to help them. I’m sure they’ll soon be on welfare, or more likely, suing the government for millions of $$$ like brother in law Omar khader did. It makes me terribly angry. It’s fine if YOU want to backpack in a dangerous country, or have your extremist political views – but don’t subject innocent kids to it, and don’t expect the government to rush in to clean up your mess. The Canadian and American governments refuse to deal with hostage situations – for good reason. If we pay for 1 hostage to be released, every extremist would be taking Canadians hostage to get a quick payout. You made the decision to put yourself in a dangerous situation – you figure it out on your own!

Michelle on October 29, 2017 at 1:37 pm

There’s another version of Mr. Adamo’s story about Sir Larry and Dustin Hoffman. Hoffman was trying to get ready for a scene played in cold weather, by sitting in a bathtub full of ice water. Sitting there shivering, utilizing his “method acting” training, Sir Larry passes by, and needles Hoffman with . . .

“Why don’t you just try acting?”

ROTFLMAO!!! Whatever the true story is, it’s great. Just shows to go ya. There’s a reason why I knew what Mr. Adamo was going to get to with Sir Larry and Dustin Hoffman. Let’s just say I’ve known a few folks in the acting game, including some famous ones, . . .

before they became famous.

And some that were supposed to become famous, . . .

but didn’t.

But are well known anyway.

I understand looks aren’t everything…but YIKES!!! Good LORD!! Look at Zaynab…THAT HAS TO BE THE MOST DISGUSTING BRIDE I’VE EVER SEEN! And so I wouldn’t expect George Clooney to be beside her…and indeed I see this American hating SLOB Joshua. I hate to say but these 2 LOOK meant for each other. On a 1 to 10 scale each check in at about negative two hundred …something tells me that Canuck may come to her senses and dump him. I hope so …which them both (josh and his baby making maple Loaf) all the worst. They did shed a combined 2 or 3 ton while “captive “. Oh and I agree with DS I’m sure those children will grow up to be absolutely delightful!!! /s
I hope I never see that picture again though…afraid I’ll turn to stone or something.

This is what makes me mad that assholes like this and others that come crying to the U.S. when their mad dogs turn on them What makes it even more repugnant is many still see the terrorist as anything but terrorists.

Hi Debbie,
After reading this article today in the New York Post (see link below), I decided to take a look at your website and was pleasantly surprised that you had already determined that he and his wife were terrorist sympathizers if not terrorists. Looking forward to your articles!
Thanks Debbie!
