Obama negotiate his release - like he negotiated with terrorists to halt the attack on the Benghazi consulate???

Maybe we can swap Harvey for Warren. That would be a win for everyone.
I would like to see Warren freed
however, then I would like to see westerners especially Jews and Christians (other than those committed to martydom) to stop putting or leaving themselves in obviously lawless unstable muslim countries and calling the US marines for help when the almost inevitable happens
I’m sorry for your friend and fellow US Citizen - but as the fraudulent POTUS remains in power - I doubt your friend will have any relief anytime soon...and that’s a crime against the Republic and Barry should be held accountable!
Fox reported this morning that they demand all al qaeda and taliban prisoners to be released by the USA for his release.
Find out where he is and send Delta Force to negotiate his release.
A possible trade for major Hasan? Ughhh, bad trade.
