I’ve written before on the perils of paying off throat-slitting terrorists. John Rosenthal at Transatlantic Intelligencer tipped me off to his very interesting analysis examining the correlation between ransom and civilian casualties in Iraq. Check it out.

Seems clear to me: When you subsidize something, you get more of it. Blood money for terrorists begets more bloodshed.
