I don’t care who the President is at this point – Mike Huckabee, Donald Trump, Jeb Bush – it doesn’t matter. ┬áJust as long as their first executive order is to rescind every unilateral decision President Obama has made. ┬áSeriously, he has to be kidding about this[1]…

The White House is expected to announce Wednesday that the administration will tell families of Americans held by terror groups they can communicate with captors and even pay ransom without fear of prosecution — a move likely to stir controversy on Capitol Hill.

Already, one prominent critic of U.S. hostage policy, Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif., is dismissing the proposed changes as “nothing more than window dressing.”

The administration plans to release the results of a broad review of U.S. hostage guidelines Wednesday. The full details of the review are not yet public, but sources told the Associated Press it will address ransom policies.

So message to terrorists, kidnap us because you’ll get whatever you’re asking for. And the sad thing? After they get the ransom, they’ll most likely kill their captive anyway.
