The recent spew of propaganda about the tragic death of Kayla Mueller ignores a core fact– ISIS didnt kill Mueller– Barack Obama did. Barack Obama refused negiotiation and dropped the bomb on her that killed her. The Obama administration has a strict no ransom policy (except, of course, for Iran). Many other countries successfully negotiated ransom release of ISIS captives. Obama could have negotiated the release of Kayla at anytime as an exchange for Dr. Siddiqi. He could have saved ALL the hostages. Here is a letter from ISIS that Obama DID get– one of ISIS goals was to break the US zero-negotiation protocol. Another was freeing muslim prisoners– epecially female mulsim prisoners.
From Abdel Bari Atwan’s book, The Digital Caliphate:
At any time Obama could have negotiated for Kayla’s release. Its ridiculous to blame MSF for not wanting to jeopardize their hostages’ release by participating in whatever scheme the FBI was hatching. If Mueller parents want to blame someone, blame Obama.
Kayla’s president didnt just leave her there to rot, he dropped a coalition bomb on her. Israelis do that– rather than allow an IDF soldier to be captured and ransomed, they will kill him and anyone in his general vicinity. Its called the Hannibal Protocol.
Here is my thought– when Kayla sent this letter to her parents, saying she was well treated, Obama executed the Hannibal Protocol on her to deny ISIS a propaganda opportunity if she reverted.
But my main complaint is back off MSF– they arent responsible for Muellers death– Obama is.
