Aha, yes, that makes a lot more sense. Of course..a hole in the ground? i never sussed that, nor did i spot the dig your own grave deal. However, yes, i agree that they broke him down, offered him spiritual salvation, then would have had to dirty him up again for his official rescue and re-Robinsoe Crusoe style him. Question: How did they know he was going to be rescued and when?
hmmm..i’m liking my second theory that his (&Walker’s) very capture was a set up by his American handlers so he is deep, deep undercover, accounting for the whole hole in the ground thing!?..
agree about the Hamid angle-there are so many plot-holes indeed, myself i think the capture of Hamid was another pre-planned set-up..why would they be that interested in a guard anyway?
reckon his nice outfit could have been for his witness ceremony when he declared that there is no God but Allah since that is not everyday wear but best..He looked happy and relaxed in it didn’t he? Do think his faith is real and important to him but not sure how he reconciles it with current day to day life?
no, of course we won’t find out these things, i agree, and a huge amount of suspension of disbelief is required. Do you get the niggling feeling that we are wasting our time indeed our life on this and it is going to turn in a meandering mess of ever labyrinthine Lost-like loopiness?
stagger on is about right, it’s like leafing through a glossy and appealing magazine for the time of viewing, yet when examined objectively it is revealed to be slick, unsubstantial and paper thin..
