US hostage policy meets Parkinson's Law

The White House has looked at current US policy regarding hostages and has seen what everyone else sees, which is dead hostages.

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.
