    White House OKs discussions with terror groups holding U.S. hostages

    The White House on Wednesday released a presidential directive that will allow the government to communicate and negotiate with terrorist groups holding Americans hostage.

    "We must do better," President Barack Obama said in a White House address Wednesday afternoon after the release of the policy changes.
    Officials will now be allowed to talk to those terror groups and discuss ways to secure the Americans' release, though the government will maintain its policy of making "no concessions" to captors.
    "It is United States policy to deny hostage-takers the benefits of ransom, prisoner releases, policy changes, or other acts of concession," reads the presidential directive. "However, this policy does not preclude engaging in communications with hostage-takers."
    And while the government won't pay ransoms, the White House announced on Wednesday that officials will no longer threaten with criminal prosecution the families of American hostages looking to pay ransoms to their relatives' captors read more

    ----------------------------------------------

    for the longest time the policy has been to not negotiate with Terrorists.

    What do you think of the policy shift?

    Might as well. We (American Government) negotiated with the savages to get back a deserter. Why, I haven't a clue. That was a slap in the face to the families of those who died searching for that SOB.

    If you could reason with Liberals there wouldn't be any.

    There is no denying that statement.
    More important, the economics of ObamaCare reward scale over competition. Benefits are standardized and premiums are de facto price-controlled. With margins compressed to commodity levels, buying more consumers via mergers is simpler than appealing to them with better products, to the extent the latter is still legal.

    I completely stuck with the point. Sorry you did not follow.

    Let me try again.

    They might as well negotiate with terrorists, Obama has been doing that for years, why changes horses in the mid-stream?

    Can you follow that, or should I break it down to three separate thoughts for ya?

    Med check sweetie.

    Obama - negotiated the release of five (5 for you progressives) terrorists for one deserting coward.

    Obama - negotiating right now with a terrorist nation.

    Don't know what your accuracy problem is, but you should look into it.

    Perhaps you could answer a simple question without all the hyperbole.

    Should we negotiate or should we put boots on the ground?

    At this time the answer could be neither.

    Quit loading your questions as ultimatums and you might get better responses.

    Thank you for sticking to the point grieker.

    Do you have another alternative or should we just sit back and let Iran do whatever in hell they wish to do?

    Iran will do whatever they hell they want to do now that Obama has lifted sanctions and sent in John "Long Face" Kerry to allow Iran to continue to develop the nuke.

    Iran DURING the negotiations has called for the death of America and death to Israel and fuck-wad Kerry continued to negotiate.

    Cut off Iran completely. If they continue to produce materiael for nukes then yes, remove Iran from the map wich will accomplish several things.

    Yes. A few actually. Most of which have been proposed by politicians of both stripes but ignored by the current administration and you.

    First one free - Keep the sanctions on until such time that their leaders demonstrate over a period of time that they can live by the previous agreements.
