The dead bodies of ISIS’ latest hostages taken in Iraq were found after the deadline set by the terror group to answer it’s demands passed.

Last week, ISIS released a video showing six men who had been taken hostage. Some were Iraqi police officers, while others were members of the Iranian-backed militia Al-Hashd Al-Sha’abi. Each had a turn to plead for his life.

Then their ISIS captors outlined their demand: “Release all Muslim women from your prisons, otherwise we will execute 6 of your police officers and soldiers.”

ISIS gave the Iraqi government three days to respond.

The dilemmas posed by negotiating with hostages are great, yet the question must be asked: Should we negotiate with terrorists to save lives?
