My skepticism long predates the latest twist in the couple’s saga — Boyle hit with a slew of criminal charges when he appeared in an Ottawa court on New Year’s Day: eight counts of assault, two counts of sexual assault, two counts of unlawful confinement, one count each of uttering a death threat, administering a noxious substance and misleading police.

In an email interview with The Canadian Press: “As near as we can tell, we were targeted because it was well-known by the eventual kidnappers that Caitlin was heavily pregnant,” wrote Boyle, recalling that couple was then staying in a small Afghan village. “They spoke often immediately following the kidnapping that ‘America will pay for you very quickly, America will not want to risk the baby is born here in prison.’ ”
