Family of Al Qaeda Hostage Obama Killed Was Never Told of Death, Kept Paying Off Captives in Hopes of His Return

This is unbelievable. Al Qaeda hostage Warren Weinstein was killed by a failed US drone strike back in January. Now we learn that Weinstein’s family kept paying off the terrorist captors to the tune of $250,000–despite the fact that he was already dead–because the family didn’t know he was dead. Obama never bothered to tell them.

Since Obama never bothered to mention that HE was the one who had killed their family member, the Weinstein’s kept negotiating with the lying terrorists. They were just trying to get their loved one released but the terrorists were only too happy ti lie and pretend he was still alive (especially since THEY weren’t the once who killed the man!).

The al Qaeda captors of now-slain hostage Warren Weinstein pocketed $250,000 in ransom money from his family in 2012, before reneging on the secret deal, according to a Pakistani intermediary.

The captors even continued to negotiate with the intermediary for weeks after the 73-year-old American aid worker was accidentally killed in a US drone strike in January.

After that strike, the kidnappers spoke of handing Weinstein over to ISIS, never hinting he was dead, according to the intermediary, who spoke directly with the terrorists.

The ransom money–in $100 bills–had been handed over to kidnappers in Peshawar in northwestern Pakistan about a year after his capture.

“The money was delivered, but he [Weinstein] didn’t show up,” the intermediary said.
Pakistani authorities even had a helicopter ready to fly Weinstein to the US Embassy in Islamabad.

This is intolerable. Obama essentially gave these terrorists $250,000 to help them to continue their terrorism!
