Before her death earlier this year, American hostage Kayla Mueller was repeatedly raped by the top leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, according to counter-terrorism officials.

Mueller’s family confirmed to ABC News that government officials have told them that their daughter, who would have turned 27 today, was the victim of repeated sexual assaults by al-Baghdadi.

“We were told Kayla was tortured, that she was the property of al-Baghdadi. We were told that in June by the government,” Kayla’s parents, Carl and Marsha Mueller, told ABC News today.

Yes, this is the sort of story that is engineered to generate popular sentiment for stepping up a unilateral military “solution,” which – given the de facto status within the Syria-Iraq region of the US as a rogue state, – would probably be even less successful than the entire Iraq mess.

And while the possibility is unlikely, it would do the entire planet good to have this criminal apprehended and tried for his crimes against humanity.
