FBI negotiated ransoms for years with kidnappers, gov. source says

Despite US policy banning federal officials from doing business with kidnappers, particularly terrorists, a government source told the Associated Press the FBI has for years negotiated and paid ransoms to kidnappers both domestically and internationally.

The government source said the FBI used a secret exemption begun under the Bush Administration which allowed the bureau to use money to engage with suspected kidnappers.
