Let's see ... Warren Weinstein, age 71, working in an Islamic sh!t-hole that is an active war zone. What could possibly go wrong here?

I hope it works out for you, Warren. Unfortunately, I don't think Mr. Netanyahu is going to lose any more sleep over your plight than Barack Hussein Obama has.

This guy's captors sure come across as morons, don't they? I mean, I imagine it must be infuriating to capture a "hostage" like this ... only to find out that nobody has any interest in negotiating for his release.

That’s a very uncharitable attitude you have there. Where do you expect missionaries and aid workers to go to help people—Biarritz?

Simple, Odumbo Mugumbo should simply equip a drone with the largest bomb/rocket it can carry and send it over that moon rock the rag heads love to march around, and tell them, look the drone only has x number of minutes of fuel left. Release the hostage or BOOOOM!

Maybe its high time to realize that “some” people are beyond help.

Even a twinkling of common sense would say that some guy with a Jewish name should serve somewhere else than in the den of the worst Jew hating sub-humans.

I have great respect for the missionaries and aid workers. But if they choose to put themselves at risk by going to these kinds of countries, they shouldn’t expect others to risk their lives to free them. Diplomatic efforts are welcome and sometimes effective, but nobody who puts themselves in this type of situation should expect a military rescue mission, hostage exchange or other bartering for their freedom. Those who seek martyrdom can blame their captors but they should never blame their fellow countrymen.

I wouldn’t have said that if he was a missionary or an aid worker. The article at the link said he was a director for a consulting firm doing business in Afghanistan.
