In an interview aired on Monday, Feb. 2, U.S. President Barack Obama acknowledged that ISIS has at least one female U.S. hostage.

The fact that ISIS has been holding an American aid worker was first released back in August. The woman is 26 years old and was doing humanitarian aid work in Syria, when it was discovered that she was taken by ISIS. Her name was not released at the request of the family.

A ransom demand for $6.6 million was made for the woman by ISIS, ABC News reported in August.

But this week’s statement by the U.S. president, made during an interview on NBC’s “Today” show, was his first public acknowledgement that this woman had been taken hostage. Obama said that his administration is “deploying all assets” to find the American held by ISIS.

“We’re deploying all assets that we can, working with all the coalition allies that we can to identify their locations,” Obama said. “We’re in very close contact with her family, trying to keep them updated. Obviously, this is a something that is heartbreaking for families. And our obligation is to do anything we can to make sure an American citizen is rescued from this situation.”

ISIS already has executed three American hostages.

  1. With the hate that the camel Jockeys have for American what in the world are they going over there. Knowing that they will be killed if caught. When they get caught then they want us to come a get their stupid butts out of trouble. I say you make the choice to go then you and you alone except the consequence of you actions. If you don’t want you head cut off then keep your butts out of the Muslim countries.

  2. If this woman were a deserter from the army Obama could offer 5 more top Taliban Prisoners for her exchange… Shhh! We are forbidden to call them Islamic Extremists or Terrorists, they are "Armed Insurgents" according to the Obama Administration… Never mind they target innocent children and other civilians as their objects to terrorize. We must not offend our Muslim Allies in the region with such talk!

  3. mr o is doing what?? really?? how?? I don't know who hates americans more, isis or mr o, by hate I mean is policies in this country hurting and damaging Americans beyond belief..can u imagine a 8000 dollar deductible on your medical plan, and you have to pay the entire deductible before the government plan kicks into gear, on top of that deductible you paying a 578.00 monthly premium. So mr o has you paying out of your pocket about 6700 a year and then paying another 8000 dollars deductible..Really this prez is helping??? he is sending us to hell in a basket, I would rather have Putin for President than this guy, or better yet a guy that needs a wheelbarrel for his gonads, Netanyahu.
