With the recent murders of two American journalists by terrorists, I've wondered how and why journalists are being kidnapped by the bad guys. 

FOX News Radio's Emily Wither has been a wonderful person to talk with about this to get insight into what's happening in the Middle East.  Here, she explains how the journalists are being taken:

Emily mentioned NBC's chief foreign correspondent Richard Engel and his several-day ordeal of being held hostage and terrorized while trying to report on the Syrian situation.

I regularly watch NBC Nightly News, so I see Richard often.  I was curious about his kidnapping and found this account Engel had written for Vanity Fair magazine.  It's chilling:

Let's pray for the British hostage whose life is currently being threatened by ISIS...
