Video: Hostage Warren Weinstein
SLAMABAD (Reuters) - A U.S. development worker kidnapped in Pakistan by al Qaeda two years ago appealed to President Barack Obama to intervene and help negotiate his release, in a video released on Thursday. In a 13-minute clip issued by al Qaeda's media wing and posted on several news websites, Warren Weinstein, 72, looked gaunt and tired.The video is here, thanks to Jeenyus.

I hope he makes it out but how much is it going to cost? I can see some terrorist who will kill again and again being traded for him. Someone isn't thinking.

America cannot and must not negotiate hostage situations. If it did more captives would be taken before the ransom was paid.
Nuff said but I still think it was stupid.
Doesn't matter who he was working for. He shouldn't have been there.

I agree, Greyrooster.
I mean - a *Jewish-American* working there?
To be THAT stupid, you've GOT to be a Democrat supporter.
I hope he gets out but I find it almost impossible to have any sympathy for someone who is *this stupid*.
