Carl’s 26-year-old daughter had been in Turkey for humanitarian missions when she was abducted by ISIS after crossing over to Syria to visit a hospital. He is set to speak at the RNC on August 27, 2020, for Trump alongside his wife.
Carl Mueller Age
He was born and raised in Arizona, the United States but his exact date of birth is still unclear. However, he appears to be around 67 years old.
Carl Mueller Wife
He is married to his loving wife Marsha Mueller. Marsha is the mother of his slain daughter Kayla. Together, the two have appeared on numerous stages trying to further the cause for which their daughter was killed. They still live in Prescott, Arizona.
Carl Mueller Kayla Mueller’s Father
Carl was the father of the slain humanitarian worker, Kayla Mueller. His daughter Kyla was on a humanitarian mission in Turkey helping refugees who were fleeing from neighboring, war-torn Syria. Kayla was abducted by ISIS on August 3, 2013, after she crossed the Syrian border to visit a hospital. The hospital was run by Doctors Without Borders.
Carl Mueller’s Daughter Death
It is when Kyla was on her way returning to Turkey that she was abducted by the ruthless terrorist group, ISIS. She was held captive in various locations in Syria by the leader of ISIS, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. al-Baghdadi is said to have forcefully married Kayla nad raped her repeatedly. Kayla was eventually tortured and killed.
The cause of her death is however still a mystery with conflicting reports from different sources. Some sources indicate that she was tortured and killed by al-Baghdadi himself. ISIS, on the other hand, released a statement stating that Kayla was killed in a series of Jordan airstrikes. Kayla is believed to have been killed on February 6, 2015. She was 26 years old.
Carl Mueller Obama
As at the time of his daughter’s abduction, Obama was the POTUS. During the 18 months that Carl’s daughter was held captive by ISIS, there were numerous attempts at rescuing her from her captors. One of the attempts saw Delta Force and Navy SEAL Team Six (the U.S. special operations forces) raid unsuccessfully an abandoned oil refinery near Raqqa trying to find reporter James Foley (who was later murdered by the terrorists), Kayla and other hostages.
After many other options bore no fruit, Carl, his wife, and family asked President Obama to consider trading Mueller for Aafia Siddiqui in a letter in the summer of 2014. Siddiqui is a convicted terrorist who is serving 86 years in federal prison. The Obama administration declined this request from Kayla’s family. The family felt betrayed by the Obama administration whom they blamed for the eventual untimely death of their daughter.
Carl Mueller Trump
Carl and his family deem the Obama administration as having failed to secure the release of their kin. This failure led to them gravitating towards the current US President Donald Trump. It is under Trump’s administration that an operation named after their daughter Kayla Mueller was carried out resulting in the death of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. In his statement announcing the death of the ISIS leader, Trump acknowledged Kayla by name. This warmed her parent’s hearts.
