Fox News Paid Ransom?

World Net News has a story that states Fox News paid a two million dollar ransom for the release of two employees abducted in Gaza this past summer. According to a Palestinian insurgent group, the money then went to buy weapons. Fox is denying the report.

The details of humanitarian worker abductions and their subsequent release are almost always kept under tight wraps. This situation begs the question of how you would handle a post-release situation, where the abductors start making true or false claims about what an NGO did to secure the freedom of a staff member. And what the impact of those statements would be.
