    Hope he gets back soon. Al-Qaeda would like to milk this one though.

    Why do people even visit Pakistan?

    I can remember years ago when the US government told its citizens to leave Lebanon because of kidnappings. Many Americans, usually academics, ignored the warnings because they thought they were somehow immune. A few were taken hostage and at least one or two were murdered.

    When Russians were kidnapped, their people went in and castrated the hostage-takers.
