State Dept: No Negotiations With Terrorist Groups

(Washington, DC) -- The State Department is insisting the U.S. government does not negotiate with terrorists. Spokeswoman Marie Harf told reporters that includes ransom demands. Harf noted that ISIS uses kidnapping and ransom to help fund its operations. The Islamic militant group demanded a six-figure ransom for American journalist James Foley, who was beheaded this week. ISIS is also holding U.S. journalist Steven Sotloff and has threatened to kill him if the U.S. doesn't call off air strikes in Iraq.
