In my opinion, the government should not broadcast to its enemies how they plan to deal with them. This matter should be handled on a situation to situation basis. There are people who make a profession of kidnapping. By passing this bill the United States of America will be essentially advertising to this community that kidnapping is a growing way to make income. I am not opposed to paying ransoms if all other options have been exhausted. I'm merely advocating that this not be our first action nor should it be advertised as such.
