Does this strike anybody as a bit too convenient? My wishes are for the hostages and their families but the hostage takers in the region do not have the best track record.

Does anybody remember the two German nurses and a South Korean aid worker that were found dead in June?

I say they are simply trying to gain some sort of advantage or favor.

I hope I'm wrong and they return safely.
