I am not a Jesse Jackson fan. Matter of fact, I detest the guy and his motives behind this are most likely self-serving... But regardless. Let's pray he is successful in this case. For the sake of the hostages and their families. We can argue his motive later.

If he can get them back, I wish the hostages all the best, but this man certainly seems to be once again suffering from the disease he has battled for so long.... Spotlight Withdrawal!!

My memory has failed me but back in the old days, the 80's, who was the cleric who went to Lebanon to negotiate release of hostages and himself was taken. Terry somebody?


Any chance this could happen to Jackson?

President Bush had to worry about all of the people and the future of the Republic. Citizens can't conduct or interfere with the United States' foreign policy. Whatever the message we send, it has to be one message from one unified nation through our president.

Who Remebers The Taliban Invitation to Jackson in september 2001?

The Taliban said they didn't instigate it.

Did Jackson ever release the "invitation?"

Good idea. Exchange him for the hostages. Heck, I believe we could find a few more to throw in. Clinton, Kerry and Carter comes immediately to mind. And that crazy bondage-politician, what's her name? Nancy Pelosi. The islamics could retire all their goats.

We can always hope. Maybe if gets stuck over there and goes without his usual soul food for a while he could lose weight and then sell his own diet plan. He could upstage the Al Sharpton Hunger Strike/Weight Loss program. How long did that protest last? Al dropped some pounds, I think. That could get Jesse a contract with Jenny Craig, too. He could take over from Monica, the possibilities are endless.

Maybe Bill Richardson should take a crack at it. He always jumps at the chance to get in the national spotlight, and didn't he have a meeting with Sadaam about hostages sometime in the past? Someone help me here.

If they do take Jesse Jackson hostage, it would be a brilliant move by both Dems and the terrorists.

The Black Caucus and John Kerry would be all over George Bush calling for Jesse's immediate release and saying Bush is powerless and ineffective. They would call him racist for not doing "whatever it takes" to get Jesse released. Then they would call Bush a murderer if the Jesse was killed.

Here's hoping they aren't that smart.

Now Fox News is saying Jackson wants to go to Iraq and "reach out" to religious leaders there. Jesse must think they will grease his palm with some greenbacks.

Attention All Jihadists:

This is an Emergency Action Message from Holy Warrior Blue 43.

Jessie Jackson is an evil American CIA spy. He has both pork rind and US Army soldiers hidden in his Afro.

Deliver him unto Alllah!

God is Great.... and a good medium rare ribeye with A-1 on the side ain't bad either.
