    I know the political editor of The Daily Mail. If he knows I'm here, I will no doubt be e-mailed.

    (Seriously though, @JoinTheSchwarz, I will tell them to politely stick it - if they do)

    Well, I'm glad the lesson of don't make recklessly bad decisions that put yourself and others in harms way has been learned.

    The poor kids.

    Wait I forget, did the kids already exist when they first went on this trip?

    She was 7 months pregnant with the eldest at the beginning.

    There were also only two kids in the December video, so presumably the youngest is under a year old.

    The guy who thought he was totally Tali-FAM after his experiences with the Khadr family (Narrator: He was not) might be equal parts naive and concerned that he'll get laughed at by the CIA for his adventurous spirit and breathtaking idiocy.

    I almost feel like there should be something about them trying to sort out the whole Israel/Palestine thing with Jared Kushner in there as well...

    Take the kids to an IS themepark, they will love the rollercoaster called the Beheader.

    The internet is not kind to anyone. Unless it cats.

    So, this hit the "Trending News" section on Facebook today. I made the mistake of clicking on it and then seeing what people were sharing (and therefore what people were then commenting)... yikes.

    The stuff we do in here is (mostly) with love, but that stuff...

    Is a long ride in the back of a C-130 as bad as 5 years with the Taliban? Well, no, but it's a lousy way to travel. I hope they don't have to come all the way back across the Atlantic in a Herkypig. Been there, done that, it sucked.

    Wait, someone who has been held captive by the Taliban for 5 years is paranoid and not making logical decisions? How weird and unexpected!

    Well tbf he was married to Zaynab Khadr, whose brother was in Gitmo. He converted to Islam and lobbied on behalf of a fairly religiously conservative family with questionable ties. Thinking this might be of interest to your government is the closest he's been to logical in years.

    Other Jabba, your sensitivity is always a thing to behold.

    The important thing is that they will be back in time to see the latest Star Wars movie. The idea that they might miss The Last Jedi in the cinema was what worried me most about their situation.

    That's for the best. I don't want to know what the media would make of our pizza declarations and other assorted tomfoolery.

    (sorry @tom, no offense)

    Maybe you should have made that determination after the first time.
