i feel for him and it must have been harrowing for him at that time.. and my heart goes out to his family.. but i honestly think wanting to get that story and maybe a pulitzer got the better off him and his senses


OK, hold up. I haven't been following the details of this story. When y'all say he went back, you're not saying he went back to his captors, are you? Did he go back to the exact same area in pursuit of the same story?

It's an American policy not to pay to recover captives. Europeans on the other hand will pay to get their people back.

The family can try and gather funds privately if they are able but the gvt won't interfere (other than trying to rescue them through intervention, that is). You're pretty much on your own in a situation like this.

Y'all think it's wrong for the U.S. to not pay?

I think it's dangerous if they DO. I'd think It'll make tourists a hot commodity, especially journalists..And as much as some groups hate us?..

Of course I understand how a family would plead for the US to pay though
