God bless the soul of that brave American soldier!

One question arises though and that is what was so special about that particular doctor? Do we send Seal Team 6 after every kidnapped American now? Only kidnapped American doctors? Only some kind of “special” person who’s a doctor? Or was he a spy for us violating Geneva accords by concealing his spy duties under the rubric of a benevolent doctor?

It really makes me wonder. Anyone else curious about this?

It’s tragic these young men and women are still dying for no particularly good reason.

I agree with ejpearcy, one must ask why the life of this one doctor was more important than the lives of the highly trained solders that rescued him?

Rest in peace Nicolas Checque. My sincere condolences go out to your family and friends.

Rest assured Dr. Dilip Joseph, your life can go on. Why?
