Guess what happened when a liberal aid worker goes to Pakistan!



The New York Times had a looooong story about Warren Weinstein, an American aid worker who went to Pakistan to help the Pakistanis. Can you guess what happened then?

In 2004, Warren Weinstein was hired as a contractor to oversee a program, funded by the United States Agency for International Development, to train and advise Pakistani farmers and furniture makers, marble miners and jewelers, and to help their businesses grow. The effort was part of the many billions of dollars that the American government has poured into Pakistan in nonmilitary aid since the Sept. 11 terrorism attacks in 2001, with the elusive goal of generating good will in a country where two-thirds of the population, according to Pew Research Center polling, views the United States as an enemy.

Has giving billions of dollars to Pakistan made them any more sympathetic to us? The population is among the most anti-American in the world. And what kind of person would go to such a hostile country?

In 2008, in the capital, Islamabad, the Marriott Hotel, a favorite among Westerners and a place where Weinstein sometimes stayed, was attacked: Terrorists detonated a truckload of explosives near the entrance, killing at least 50 people and wounding more than 250. In late 2008, another American contractor working to stimulate economic development was shot to death in Peshawar, where Weinstein often traveled. The next year, a hotel in that city frequented by Westerners was blown up.

Again, why would this guy go there?

But Weinstein seemed to feel protected by his eager embrace of Pakistani ways — he had taught himself Urdu, dressed in long Pakistani tunics and even substituted a Pakistani-style silver wedding ring with a stone for his simple gold band. He was also reassured by his mission of bringing change through peaceful engagement. He thought of his work, Alisa said, as a way ‘‘for the good people of the world to find each other and collaborate,’

Ok, I think we have our answer. He was sympathetic to Islam. Here's how Weinstein's peaceful engagement worked out:

kidnappers smashed a gun into Weinstein’s head, dragged him, bleeding, down the stairs and sped away. They left behind his asthma and blood-pressure medications, along with his glasses, which compounded the horror for his wife and daughters.

On April 1, 2012, 233 days after Weinstein’s disappearance, Elaine woke when her cellphone rang after midnight. A man spoke to her in garbled English. Her mind seized with fear that if she made any mistake he would hang up. She couldn’t decipher much of what he was saying except that he wanted 50 million Pakistani rupees — more than $500,000.

They settled on $243,000. The wife didn't want to pay it all up front, but Weinstein, speaking to her from captivity, assured her that his captors could be trusted.

The captors soon sent Elaine an email with a video. In it, Weinstein wore a black tunic. His hair was unkempt, but his tone was level. ‘‘I know that you find it difficult, but I think we have to trust them. I believe they’re going to free me and they’ll keep their word. Please put the money into their account, and a few days after they receive the money, they’ll deliver me.’’ He gave a small nod, affirming his own words. ‘‘Let’s trust them. I think, in fact, I’m almost certain they’re going to free me.’’ He continued: ‘‘I trust the fellow that’s been dealing with me.

So they gave over the $243,000. And to their great surprise, Weinstein was not released.

Later, they found out that Weinstein was killed in a drone attack on an Al Qaeda hideout. Naturally, Mrs. Weinstein was furious... with the American government, not with her crazy husband for recklessly putting his life in danger.

Elaine said almost nothing. ‘‘I was furious, and maybe that’s why I didn’t speak,’’ she said afterward. ‘‘I was afraid to open my mouth. I was brought up a certain way. I’m not going to be a bitch."

However, they did hear from Al Qaeda afterwards, who Elaine was not apparently furious with.

On June 18, 2015, a spokesman for Al Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent posted a statement in Urdu on Twitter that Weinstein had converted and was a ‘‘hard-working student of Islam,’’ that he was treated as a ‘‘beloved elder’’ by the mujahedeen and that his corpse emitted a ‘‘mysterious but pleasant fragrance that mesmerized everyone.’’ Along with the text, Al Qaeda included a photograph of Weinstein seemingly prepared for a Muslim burial, his bearded face ensconced in a white shroud.

But wait, the story isn't quite over!

Not long after, Elaine said, the F.B.I. called to tell her that the government had been contacted by a party claiming he had Weinstein’s remains and demanding $3 million for them.

This is the story of a fool who goes to a dangerous, wildly Anti-American country and gets totally surprised with what happens to him. This is the left, they are so out of touch that they don't realize that if the subjects of their great love had them in their hands, they'd be no more than corpses emitting a "mysterious but pleasant fragrance".
