because man if you pay they will keep the hostage and milk more money from you........

and just because you pay does not guarantee you proof of life or release..........

the policy is sound but it doesnt mean you have to like it.

you are correct but if a ransom payment could have this womans life then a ransom payment should have been paid. Instead you have the world wondering if a grenade from the U.S. this womens family should recieve some type of aid. seriously.
