The U.S. secretly agreed to the "real demands" set by the group behind the August 14 kidnapping of two Fox News journalists in Gaza, according to a report in the pan-Arab newspaper al Hayat.

The paper quotes "informed sources close to the mediations" as saying that the U.S. secretly negotiated with the group through leaders of "the Palestinian popular resistance committees."

Last week, the previously unknown group calling itself "The Holy Jihad Brigades" issued a statement demanding the release of all Muslims held in U.S. prisons in return for the release of the two journalists. In fact, the paper reports that the public demand was not serious and that the group's "real demands" were that the U.S. press Israel to reopen the Rafah border crossing between Egypt and Palestine and cease the shelling of "Palestinian activists'" residences.

It seems this has pissed some people off, not because they think it's not true, but that even if it was true, they shouldn't reveal the US' deceit since it may encourage other kidnappers.

Despite people's frustration, ATS is about denying ignorance and finding out the truth, no matter how frustrating it may be. It makes you wonder how much other propaganda the US puts forth. Will this make you reexamine the things you hear in the news?

Nope, still not buying it. I called this whole thing as a phoney propaganda stunt days ago. This latest is just an attempt to divert the growing suspicion away from the reporters with rumours of government involvement that will never be confirmed or denied.

I don't think the government had anything to do with this, but they'll play along rather than lose their right arm (fox news).
