U.S. Hostage Pleads to Obama to Save His Life in al Qaeda Video [Terrorists Stronger]
WALL STREET JOURNAL ^ | 5/7/12

Posted on 05/07/2012 6:20:47 AM PDT by SoFloFreeper

American hostage Warren Weinstein says in a video released late Sunday by al Qaeda that he will be killed unless U.S. President Barack Obama agrees to the militant group's demands.

"My life is in your hands, Mr. President," Mr. Weinstein said in the video. "If you accept the demands, I live; if you don't accept the demands, then I die."

It’ll be a miracle if the savages don’t kill this poor man on camera.

What is wrong with 0bama? Can’t he just send a few $billion to the palistinians to save this guys life? Can’t he just secretly release taliban prisoners to save this guys life? Can’t he just topple corrupt westernized middle-east dictatorships, putting the bruddahood in power instead to save this guys life? Can’t he just declare when all our troops will leave Afganistan to save this guys life? WHY won’t ZER0 save this guys life!?

Yes, but what a campaign opporunity this is - “I killed Bin Laden AND personally saved Warren Weinstein”.

Sadly, they will probably slaughter (behead) this poor man in front of a live camera.

Obama has taken Mullah Omar off the FBI most wanted terrorist list.

Hard to keep someone on that list if you are negotiating with them.

Obama will do nothing that may disturb his shot at “peace” with the Taliban or other terrorists.

You know, I'm of two minds on this. On the one hand, with hussein as our "leader" and due to the fact he's in the hands of savages... I'd say he's an inclined plane wrapped helically around a shaft...

On the other hand, if hussein can help the terrorists, and look like a "leader" at the same time, and get airtime as saving this guy's live, and it only costs a few billion of our hard earned dollars, and it weakens the US... I think hussein may bend over backwards (or forwards) for these terrorists. The guy may live...

Dang the luck. Apparently Mr. Weinstein's captors didn't get the memo that The War On Terror is over.

Somebody ping al-Qaeda.

If Hussein "rambo" 0bama could single handedly kill Bin Laden, surely he can rescue an American citizen that is held captive, and he will just as soon as he finishes his round of golf, plans his next luxury vacation, does a couple of fund raisers, and hands out more taxpayer dollars.

I feel sorry for this poor man.

“An American Jew decided to be a contractor in Pakistan...what could go wrong?”

####

This guy wants to put HIMSELF above his country?

The RaceMarxist, as the traitorous, anti-American coward that he is, will default to the easy things:

1) Paying the savages’ “demands” as usual, out of the bottomless taxpayer stash.

2) Take the appeaseemnt route, weakening America still fuurther, in the process.

>>An American Jew decided to be a contractor in Pakistan<<

The first thing I thought when I saw the last name, what in the world is a Jewish guy doing in Pakistan?

I mean, they hate Americans, but doubly hate an American Jew.

I pray they will let him go. Not a good sitch.

Past is prelude. If they've released this video, he's already dead.

If this goes the way it probably will, it’ll work out the same way the Carter hostage issues did.

Obviously this man is mistaken. Bobo's admin declared the war on terror 'over', so this man is not a hostage, but merely a 'guest' of Pah-kee-stan.

“Just send Jesse. He needs the air time after Zimmerman quiets down.”

I don’t think the Race Pimp would make any difference. I think it’s already a done deal, this guy’s gone. There’s no justice, just pieces.

They will kill him anyway. They have NO HONOR. My advice: Answer as an avenging angel, fire raining from the sky.

That they WILL understand.

“In a video message posted on militant websites in December, al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahri said Mr. Weinstein would be released if the U.S. stopped airstrikes in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia and Yemen. He also demanded the release of all al Qaeda and Taliban suspects around the world.”

He’s 70 years old. They intend to kill him regardless. If Obama gives into the demands, he will definitely not be reelected. If he were five years old with a little puppy dog in his arms, he’d still be as good as dead.

I would not put past this regime an arrangment made to create a little theater in order make Obama appear to be the bold rescuer.

We should suit him up and get the USAF to drop him in.

Based on Jesse’s public statements, I don’t think he is fond of Mr. Weinstein’s people.

Well Warren, you found out about the downside of choosing to work in an unstable Islamo-hellhole.

You took the paycheck. I hope it was worth it.

Yep. I hope he doesn’t end up like Daniel Pearl did. An American Jew in Pakistan.. Can’t take much higher risk than that!

My response would be “Release him, or we execute every prisoner in Guantanamo, AND kill the next 1000 Jihadis we capture.”
“And, if we find out who you are, we’ll kill you AND every member of your family that we can locate.”

Mr. Obama doesn’t care about this man’s vote. He needs to solicit more Hollywood millions right now.

Can he get back to you in 2013?

He will get released the day Obama leaves office?

Warren was a professor of mine and a terrific person...worked with me on an ambitious project which we met on every Saturday in the summer of ‘76..These monsters who captured this good man are evil slime....he was there helping the people these terrorists claim to be representing...
I pray for his release every day...

i believe that is what is being planned... sad to say.

Bump for a good <sarc> post.

Where, oh where, can we have gone wrong?

One of my problems with Romney is that he'll hit the door as fast as Obozo and sign off on all his DoD-weakening budget cuts, to get money for "business tax cuts" for The Boys Downtown.

I don't see Romney doing squat for the country, if he gets elected. He's too preoccupied with white horses and stuff.
