[Watch] CNN Reports On Why ISIS Needs More Western Hostages

So, the Europeans are actually paying the ransoms on these people?  It seems that this is part of the ISIS revenue plan.  To give credit where it is due, Cruickshank explains well why western hostages are valuable to ISIS.  That CNN is reporting this highlights the danger for westerners in the Middle East – and that the west is through giving the barbarians the benefit of the doubt.
