Kidnapping pays.

The case that I have a strong recollection of was one where Abu Sayyf kidnapped some Western tourists from Malaysia. The Filipino Government refused to bargain with Abu Sayyf and the situation was not being resolved. The Mohammar Qadaffi offered some millions of dollars to ransom the captives.

Wow! I thought Mohammar gets to come off looking like a nice guy and openly funding one of his favorite causes all in one go. I did a little searching on this and it appears this game is still going on.

Now the GMA administration is helping to fund the terrorists in Iraq!
