I meant to bring that up too and then forgot - I never heard of such a thing. At first I assumed they just meant the FBI delivered ransom money provided by the parents, substituting traceable currency, but later it was specifically referred to as "taxpayers' money". On TV they invariably advise the victims not to pay any ransom - not sure how authentic that is either though...

Who knew "flammable" and "inflammable" mean the same thing???

I could maybe see the FBI doing something like that to track down a real criminal ring, but not in a one-off case like this...

Obama's crew officially let slip that it's O.K. now for families to pay ransom, but have not admitted ransom was paid for the deserter they exchanged for the five boggy terrorists too.

I am behind. Just saw the First Night for Buzz on Patrol episode. (Body in bathtub) {wedding}
What a stinker. The whole shoot seemed improvised and the non regulars looked very amateurish.
More of an outtake reel than a show.
