The Cost of Freedom: Half a Million Dollars

Ah, now the pattern develops:

Kidnap some hostages, and make recruiting videos of their execution.

Kidnap other hostages, and hold them in cages and let little bits of hope and fear interplay, until you can negotiate the price (which will no doubt be used in part to finance more of the same). This latter thing has an old history, and doesn't surprise me.

Slobokan's Site O' Schtuff discusses the payment of ransom for the two Italian aid workers, and what it can mean for all foreigners in Iraq.
