Americans kidnapped in Kabul, Afghanistan, 15-20/wk

Mr. Shakeri is with the UCI Middle East Peace organization.  He went to Turkey and Kabul just before the Turkish Elections.  

When he got off the plane in Kabul he told his friends to take him to his hotel.  They laughed at him and said do you know what happens here with the U.S.?  You are only safe with us with the Iranians.  They are the only ones anyone is afraid of.  Every American who signs in is given to the terrorists for kidnapping.

Then auctioned for $250,000 ea.  $250 million for arms.
