    $5M Paid To Buy Freedom For Rights Workers Held In Egypt | Fox News

    Snip:
    Egyptian officials said the U.S. paid $300,000 each for 16 Americans, nine of whom were already out of the country.

    The State Department said the money was paid by the nongovernmental organizations where the democracy and rights workers work. However, the NGOs receive U.S. funding for their operations.



    It's becoming clear that we no longer have a clear cut plan when it comes to foreign relations. Paying for their release will now encourage other extreme groups to now kidnap Americans around the globe. This also proves that the US no longer holds ANY power around the globe. We had all our foreign aid to hold over their head but apparently had no credibility to achieve anything in such a manor.

    Everybody knows that American lives aren't worth $300,000. Especially not if they're hoity toity liberal rights worker types. They would have done us a favor if they had executed them.

    Everyone, with a brain, also knows that at 300k per American you got a very profitable new business model.

    FINALLY, a coherent foreign policy from Barack Obama!

    1. Beg, Grovel, and Apologize.

    2. Use taxpayer money to pay ransom for kidnapped U.S. citizens.

    It only took three years, but it's all clear now.

    Had our nation not become the easily picked on high school nerd that gives up his lunch money rather than stand up for what's right, those workers would never have been imprisoned at all.

    Start up a business then, entrepreneur. You're not emotionally invested.
