These are the two UK terrorist that beheaded James Foley among others. You may recall that his parents were outraged that it was illegal for them to pay a ransom to his terrorist hostage takers. I completely understand why his parents would want to do whatever it took to get him released. On the other hand allowing anyone to help fund Terrorists so that they can behead even more people is frankly outrageous! Their son knew exactly what the risk was having been kidnapped once already in the Middle East!
As for the terrorists the US has promised the UK that they would not to be executed which begs the question of why it is ok for the US to employ a double standard here. If you are at war you either execute all beheaders or none at all. If I had been Bill Barr I would not have agreed with UK demands to withhold execution but rather would have turned them both over to Iraq for “trial”! Now we are stuck with sending them to Guantanamo for the rest of their lives. Maybe we should send the Boston Bomber there as well.
And that is all I’m going to say about that!
