COMMENT: Please review my postings of January 17, 2013, January 1, 2013 and December 31, 2012 entitled:
  • "Afghanistan: Likelihood of Finding Pregnant US Woman, Due Now, and Canadian Husband Fading" (January 17, 2013) 
  • "Afghanistan: Update on Pregnant Missing American Woman, 27, Canadian Husband, 29, Since October 2012 (January 1, 2013)
  •  "Afghanistan: Pregnant American Woman, 27, Canadian Husband Missing Since October 12" (December 31, 2012)
 It is noteworthy to point out that the Department omitted the apparent disappearance and suspected kidnapping by the Taliban of US citizen Caitlan Coleman, 27, and her Canadian husband, Josh, as not being significant enough to mention in its January 29 update of its travel warning for Afghanistan.
