I'm hoping for the best, I respect his work and the danger..

What annoys me... This is news and they have been in blackout mode for nearly 4 days. The merits of such a blackout are debatable but if it wasn't one their own, I seriously doubt they would have complied for such a length

I wonder if NBC will blame this on a video, and bury it like they did Benghazi, cause that's right AL queda is on the run. Cause Obama said it was.

why do we, the general public, have a right to know?

especially if that endangers him more or hinders the potential recovery?

We do not have a right to know. We have a right to inquire. NBC, and its competitors, require our trust that they are providing us with all of the relevant information to keep us informed. They get to decide what is newsworthy. However, they lose credibility when they act differently to protect their own, or when their coverage exhibits an agenda that attempts to persuade rather than inform.

As far as I'm concerned, NBC crossed that barrier long ago. I do not consider them a source of news, just the propaganda arm of the Democrat Party.

dude, Obama has been a cold blooded killer when it comes to terrorists. Dude has taken Israel's Munich style of justice to another level.



The level where he hands them control of countries, billions of dollars, and arms them?

Great news

quote:

The identities of the kidnappers and their motives were unknown. But an article on the NBC News Web site quotes Mr. Engel as saying their captors “were talking openly about their loyalty to the government” of Syrian President Bashar Assad.


quote:

The site said the crew members were being moved to a new location on Monday night “when their captors ran into a checkpoint manned by members of the Ahrar al-Sham brigade, a Syrian rebel group. There was a confrontation and a firefight ensued. Two of the captors were killed, while an unknown number of others escaped.” The rebels helped escort the crew to the Syrian border.
