26 year old Kayla Mueller born 1988 Died (?). Body's whereabouts Unknown? Somehow Kayla and others like her have a blind faith that doing good or reporting a story is their shield against evil like terrorist organizations. It really doesn't make any difference what acronym the terrorist might use they are all one and the same operating according to their view of the Quran.
Lets forget about reporters who put themselves in the middle of battles and in harms way purposely. Lets look at the relief organizations, blind faith and outright stupidity with little regard for security in war zones. Are relief organizations marching people to their deaths, horrible deaths?
Kayla who was certainly no child worked for Support To Life. Its unclear whether she was a paid staff of just a volunteer. If she's a volunteer you have to ask yourself how does she support herself globe trotting from one disaster to the other.
Support To Life is operating in Syria with little or no security and Its volunteers are evidently free to roam about the country alone. Kayla Mueller started working in southern Turkey in December 2012, where she was assisting Syrian refugees.
On August 3, 2013, information seems to show, she drove to the northern Syrian city of Aleppo with a coworker/friend who was traveling to the Spanish Doctors Without Borders hospital in Aleppo to work for a day. She worked with international aid agency Support to Life. On her departure from Aleppo to return to Turkey, terrorists abducted her. Did she leave alone? What happened to the co-worker?
Its incredible that they are driving in a war zone as if its a Sunday drive. We find it hard to believe Kayla and Support To Life was that naive about the dangers surrounding them. Surely they had seen or heard of the beheadings of fellow Americans?
Mueller had been in ISIL custody for 18 months.
A US mission to rescue her and several others in northern Syria in July 2014 failed when ISIS moved the prisoners.
The US was unaware of her location since, though her family was told negotiations were underway to swap her for Aafia Siddiqui, according to Arizona House Representative Paul Gosar.
ABC News, citing unnamed "counter-terrorism officials", reported that Mueller may have been married to an ISIS commander, and the group did not view her as a bargainable hostage.
In a letter to her family, she spoke of being healthy, well-fed and treated with the utmost kindness and respect in a safe place. ISIS members corresponding with the Muellers referred to Kayla as their "guest"
A little self preservation might have been lacking in her do good attitude. Maybe it was the adrenalin rush you get from being in a war zone and getting away with it? Maybe it truly was blind faith or misguided ideology?
If you or a loved one decides you must volunteer to an organization like Support To Life who is supported by other relief organizations like them. Please do your due diligence when it comes to their security, it just might save you from a horrible death at the hands of evil killers. Its not fair that you put your family and country at the mercy of killers to use you as a pawn.
Please recognize there is plenty of plight in our country, most of it self inflicted.
