I trust that the austere religious scholar is currently enjoying the amenities of one of the less fashionable pits in Hell:
Terrorist leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who the president said was killed during a special forces raid in Syria, had reportedly been the captor and rapist of Arizona’s Kayla Mueller, who was taken hostage in 2013.
“What this man did to Kayla — he kidnapped her,” her father Carl Mueller, his voice choking, told The Arizona Republic on Sunday morning, shortly after President Donald Trump announced al-Baghdadi had died.
“She was held in many prisons,” Carl Mueller said. “She was held in solitary confinement. She was tortured. She was intimidated. She was ultimately raped by al-Baghdadi himself.”
“He either killed her or he was complicit in her murder,” Carl Mueller said. “I’ll let people who read this article make up their own mind how a parent should feel.”

From The Hill:
Mueller’s parents told The Arizona Republic that they credited Trump with bringing Mueller’s killers to justice after the president announced Sunday morning that ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi had been killed in a U.S. raid.
“I still say Kayla should be here, and if Obama had been as decisive as President Trump, maybe she would have been,” Marsha Mueller told the newspaper.
“For me what matters most I’m hoping now we will finally get the answers we have been asking for all along,” she added. “I think this administration truly might help us. I don’t think they are as closed about what happened.”
Her husband, Carl Mueller, added that it was “important” to him that Trump knew of his daughter’s story and thanked the president for mentioning Kayla Mueller’s name in his address Sunday morning.
“He knows her story. He’s been briefed on it, and he knows, and that’s important to me,” he said, according to the Republic. “I don’t think anything would have stopped him from getting this guy.”
