I was shocked to read in the Times that Mr. Shadid's fellow captors said that it was not worth the risk of being captured, ESPECIALLY when other people's lives were put at stake. Not only was their driver still missing but Mr. Shadid had been kidnapped last year &, not only was his translator killed but so was one of the British soldiers who came to rescue him. What on earth could he have been thinking by taking such a dangerous risk again. I've been anxious to know the answer to this this since his release.
