Vanessa Marzullo and Greta Ramelli Released

Yeah I know Italy probably paid ransom.

Two Italian aid workers who were kidnapped by Islamic extremists in Syria six months ago were released on Thursday, suggesting that Italy has continued its long-running policy of paying ransoms for captives.

"Vanessa Marzullo and Greta Ramelli are free and will soon return to Italy," read a tweet from the office of Matteo Renzi, the prime minister. His spokesman also confirmed the release.

The two young women were taken hostage in July while working on humanitarian projects in the embattled northern city of Aleppo.

So two liberals learn a very hard lesson, terrorists don't care if you care.

Possibly Italy can do what France did when it freed its last hostage held by AQIM, follow the money and kill the recipients.

1 I seriously doubt they learned a damn thing. I'd be willing to place down money on the fact that if interviewed tomorrow, they would continue to espouse Marxist view points and maintain a very unfavorable view of the West.

2 I am seeing that "aid" workers are stupid people. Just plain dumb. How the hell do they even get passports to go to the shithole called the middle east?

3 Wonder if those sacks will follow them as they return to Italy ... hope the ladies have learned a good hard lesson about the "people" they seek to help. Ahhh, your kind of help is neither appreciated nor needed in the shit holes of the world by these shit kickers.
