Yesterday, ISIS released a video in which the so-called "Jihadi John" beheaded British aid worker Alan Henning. The video also showed American aid worker and former U.S. Army Ranger Peter Kassig. Jihadi John said Kassig would be killed if U.S. led military operations in Iraq and Syria did not cease.
If we are not prepared to pay ransom for Kassig (as Ben Stein has argued we ought to do) as we did with Bowe Bergdahl then why not organize a covert operation to rescue Kassig and the other hostages? Otherwise, we are going to be seeing a lot more videos from ISIS. More videos means more dead Americans, Brits and other Westerners. Let's put ISIS out of the movie business.
