So there's a new policy. That policy involves the creation of:
Hostage Recovery Fusion Cell
Hostage Response Group
Intelligence Community Issue Manager for Hostage Affairs
Special Presidential Envoy for Hostage Affairs
Family Engagement Coordinator
And there'll also be grant program to fund NGO support to hostage families.
With a real push, all that could be in place at about the time the training of Syrian rebels actually happens!
It's as realistic that Liam Neeson's Bryan Mills has a real-life solution to hostage situations as this new plan.
