ISIS Threatens To Execute 26-Year-Old Female Relief Worker if U.S. Does Not Fulfill ISIS’ Demands
There’s a reason that United States policy had originally been to never negotiate with terrorists. Now that Obama has, they’ve been emboldened — and so they’re threatening to kill a female American if we don’t pay them millions of dollars and release another terrorist.
This morning it was revealed that a third American citizen held hostage by ISIS is a 26-year-old woman from the West Coast who was performing humanitarian relief work when she was kidnapped in Syria last year. The family requested that the name not be released to the public.
ABC News reports:
The terror group is demanding $6.6 million and the release of U.S. prisoners for the life of the young woman, who the family requested not be identified.
In addition to the multi-million dollar ransom, the terror group has also demanded that the U.S. release Aafia Siddiqui, an MIT-trained neuroscientist who was convicted by the U.S. in 2010 of trying to kill U.S. officials two years before, according to a supporter of Siddiqui who has been in contact with the hostage’s family.
Why the increase in demands for the release of U.S. hostages? Through the Bergdahl trade, the President has already shown that he will release terrorists we hold in exchange for American citizens.
This young woman has probably been through hell during her captivity, and one would expect that the Obama administration is using all of the resources at its disposal to locate and rescue her and our other hostages. Hopefully last week’s disclosures of the failed Foley rescue mission will not have jeopardized a mission to rescue her.
It’s horrific enough to see ISIS behead an innocent American civilian, but for them to behead an American woman, a relief worker, should spur international outrage the likes of which ISIS has never seen. Unfortunately, Obama only negotiates with terrorists to secure the return of a deserter who may have even joined the Taliban himself — but rest assured, he’ll get right on orchestrating this woman’s rescue… just as soon as his latest round of golf is over.
