Absolute tomfoolery by our elected officials. The morons people advising governments to placate criminals and jihadists aught to be kicked out on their behinds. The only thing that should be made available to these pirates is either a quick walk to the gallows, or a heavy anchor tossed into their boat after the bottom has been sprayed with machine gun fire. KGS
NOTE: Statist government officials never deem handouts to be counterproductive
