Obama says the government has betrayed relatives of hostages
US President Barack Obama admitted that the government has not done enough for the families of American hostages abroad.

The President believes that his administration has been too insensitive to families who have experienced that family members have been taken hostage abroad.

- There have been cases where our government, no matter how good the intentions have been, has failed them. I promised them that we can be better, said Obama after having had hostages families on visit in the White House on Wednesday.

He also announced certain changes in US hostage policy. It will still not be paid a ransom to get the hostages freed, instead a special envoy will be appointed, who will work with hostage situations, having contact with the hostages families and coordinate efforts with other countries.

Already on Tuesday it became clear that the US government will no longer prosecute families who choose to pay ransom to terrorists in an attempt to get their loved ones back.

Funding terrorism seems to be a priority, so in other words, if private funded, then fine.

And let's just forget about the Bergdahl swap, where a huge amount of money was payed in ransom, by the government, in addition to releasing 5 Taliban commanders to Taliban, to get back a Muslim convert, a traitor and a deserter.
