Was he going the ultimate way to recover a lost bag? Or maybe he was seeing if camel and armed truck convoy loading techniques could improve filling a LD3 cargo container?
Those are some (non-plausible) explanations for why Delta baggage handler Takuma Owuo-Hagood entered Afghanistan on 23 June. More likely explanations are that Owuo-Hagood was looking for "business opportunities" but was held hostage by the Taliban or that Owuo-Hagood was purposefully seeking out the Taliban, the New York Times reports.
Owuo-Hagood sought American military patrol protection on 2 October and has since flown back to the United States, although there is no word if he had to load his own bag into the aircraft.
