It's been one hell of a week for Jack Idema, Brent Bennett and Ed Caraballo, the three Americans illegally imprisoned in Afghanistan. For the benefit of those who haven't been following events since last Saturday either here or in the MSM, Pulacharke, the prison Jack, Brent and Ed are being held at, is now effectively under the control of Taliban and al-Qaeda prisoners. Jack and Brent are holed up in their Block 2 Annex, armed, and protected by members of the Northern Alliance. Ed Caraballo (left), who was being held in another section of the prison, has been taken hostage by the Taliban, who have threatened to decapitate him if their demands are not met. Other hostages include 50-or-so female prisoners from the womens' block, who the Taliban have now been gang-raping for the last four days. So, yes, this is a mess ... Though you wouldn't think that if you were getting your news from MSM, most of whom have slavishly (and, it must be said, lazily) repeated President Karzai's 'official' line without question. This post continues below - please scroll down & see Jack Idema Blogburst - so you can link into other MSM coverage since Saturday to get the 'total' picture.

My God. All I can do is say a prayer.

I understand that Caraballo is out of their clutches. I only managed a brief look at SuperPatriots earlier. Will check again shortly.
