Remember Roy Hallums

Dr. Rusty Shackleford of The Jawa Report has an update on the plight of American Roy Hallums, who was kidnapped on November 1st, 2004.
Roy was taken hostage along with six other foreign nationals, including a Fillipino named Robert Tarongoy. The U.S. did not publish the fact that an American citizen had been taken hostage because of a policy of treating civilian abductions as purely private matters. The Jawa Report was the first publication to identify Roy Hallums as the hostage.

Since that time we have been in contact with members of the Hallums family who started leaving comments at our site. Roy's daughter, Carrie Hallums Cooper, and his ex-wife, Susan Hallums, have been leading the charge to keep Roy's plight in the media.
This is part one of a series that will continue tomorrow and next week. Stop over at The Jawa Report and read the full story.
