After video plea of kidnapped Dutch couple was released two weeks ago, we have heard many sloppy accounts of their release and whereabouts.
The recent one, carried out by Almasdar Online, claimed that Judith Spiegel and her Husband (I wonder why the hostages and not the kidnappers are the one asking for the ransom) asked $ 10 million in ransom. Also, the story paid an effort to rule out any involvement of the al-Qaeda group and blamed ‘remnants of the regime’ inside the National Security Bureau (NSB) for non-cooperation, a charge the Dutch Govt. was also accused of.
It’s too early to blame anyone. For the sake of our friends’ release, we all got to be patient and let the diplomats sort this out.
