The father of Caitlan Coleman, the American woman who was imprisoned by a Taliban-affiliated group for five years, lashed out in a Friday interview at her husband, Joshua Boyle, for bringing her to Afghanistan while she was pregnant.

“Taking your pregnant wife to a very dangerous place, to me, and the kind of person I am, it’s unconscionable,” Jim Coleman told ABC News’ “Good Morning America”. He added that he doesn’t understand why Boyle refused to board an American plane following the family’s rescue by Pakistani soldiers.

“I don’t know what five years in captivity would do to somebody, but if it were me and I saw a US aircraft and US soldiers, I’d be running for it,” Coleman said.
