Who Will Help Aafia Siddiqui's Children?

This video from Cageprisoners is of a press conference held in Afghanistan shortly after Aafia Siddiqui and her son were detained. It seems to have been taken before Siddiqui was shot and removed from Afghan custody by U.S. forces. Note that the boy keeps his face covered, seems at one point to be sobbing, and appears to be scratching at his face (a possible sign of severe anxiety/stress). I ask again: WHERE are the children of Aafia Siddiqui? WHERE have they been for the past five years? WHAT does the U.S. government know about them?
