Trudeau has yet to reveal the circumstances behind the release of Joshua Boyle, and the Taliban are not in the habit of handing back hostages for free, so why does it appear they made an exception?
Lee explained that it was actually Trump who came to Boyle's rescue because Joshua's wife is an American citizen — and the White House didn't let Trudeau know about this plan.
(Because Trudeau rejected attempts to rescue Canadian hostages held by an ISIS branch in the Philippines, the Americans realized there was no point consulting him this time, until two hours into the rescue mission.)
Despite owing his freedom to the Americans, Boyle then suspiciously refused to be transported back to Canada on a U.S. jet, possibly fearing he would be questioned by American intelligence agencies.
Now Boyle is facing multiple fifteen criminal charges including sexual assault, unlawful confinement and administering a noxious substance.
Why didTrudeau have a secret meeting with Boyle? Why does their relationship go back to 2006?
And what are the "common interests" Boyle claims he shares with Trudeau?
