BBC: "Obama allows US hostage families to pay ransoms"
The White House has announced changes to how the government handles hostage situations that involve US citizens. President Barack Obama has directed the US government not to threaten the hostages' families with prosecution if they attempt to pay captors' ransom. Mr Obama has drawn criticism for the long-standing policy of prohibiting concessions to militant groups. The shift raises questions about whether it makes US citizens more lucrative targets for hostage-takers.THIS INCENTIVIZES THE ENEMY AND IT WILL DEFINITELY INCREASE THE NUMBER OF AMERICAN HOSTAGES THE ENEMY WILL TAKE.
AND OBAMA MUST KNOW THIS.
HE IS NOT FOR PEACE; OBAMA IS ON THE OTHER SIDE.
