INSANITY: Obama Just Made Hostage-taking a Lot More Lucrative for ISIS; They’ve Got to be Cheering

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Obama just opened up a huge new market for Islamic terrorist group ISIS, formerly referred to by him in January 2014 as the equivalent of a “JV team,” announcing a new policy on Wednesday which not only funds Islamic terrorism, but puts a price tag on the heads of all Americans by making hostage-taking a more lucrative business for the Muslim extremists.[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”5517620b381df”][vc_column_text]Rather than make the case to Congress to change existing laws prohibiting American citizens from paying ransom to terrorists, wannabe Dictator Obama, using his magical but unconstitutional “pen and phone” has decided that he will not enforce those laws.

Welcome to more “Hope and Change,” as treasonous Obama again violates the Constitution by picking and choosing which laws he will enforce, violating his constitutional oath as he has done on numerous occasions previously.

“You’re going to have the government now facilitating payments from the families here, to the terrorists there, while at the same time we have troops on the ground in Iraq and Syria fighting the same people we’re paying money to,” said California Congressman Duncan Hunter, a Republican and former Marine who served in both Iraq and Afghanistan, on FOX News on Wednesday.

Retired Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer, a London Center for Policy Research senior fellow and Bronze Star recipient, called Obama’s new policy of funding terrorism, “insane,” and said prior to the announcement to FOX News’s Bill Hemmer:

“The moment he announces this, Bill, it increases the odds of U.S. citizens being captured and held hostage. Anytime you essentially endorse something, you get more of it. Anytime you actually do something like this, you’re going to actually put lives of U.S. citizens in danger.”

Lt. Col. Shaffer points out that Europe has had a policy like Obama announced and it makes kidnappings by terrorists “more lucrative.”[/vc_column_text][banner300 banner=”553157113d3ff”][vc_column_text]”By the way, when you pay the ransom, you add to the terrorists’ ability to conduct more terror,” he noted.

Which may be exactly what Obama wants.
