Quote From Colin Powell

“I myself believe that hostages taken by terrorists represent individual tragedies, and we must do what we can to obtain their freedom. Nevertheless, hostage taking and terrorism cannot be allowed to drive foreign policy decisions. Ransom, however euphemized, is still ransom and should never be paid. Giving in to hostage takers and terrorists can only demonstrate to them that their weapons work.”
