I was astounded by this story as well until further facts were revealed. It turns out all these American parents and students were emigrants to America from Afghanistan. And quite recent ones as well. So they decided to take an opportunity to visit relatives and their original homeland while such an opportunity exists. And brother did they guess wrong about that. Still stupid but marginally less so. I wonder what Issa will say when he finds out these facts.


I read they were visiting "extended family," but I couldn't see how that attenuated the stupidity. Put your kids in the same danger as they? Good grief.

Oh yeah. Still incredibly stupid. It wasn't like that country was an inviting vacation destination six months ago.


I, too, read up on this and yes, even with the explanation given - who does such a stupid, thoughtless thing?
