Should the United States ever negotiate with terrorist groups like Al Qaeda?

Have you ever watched 24? CTU did it every 3 episodes or so to get nuke codes or find out where they were keeping someone in the POTUS' family hostage!

No, but we've been holding "peace talks" with the "Palestinian" terrorists for years.

The reason why I say yes is because prisoner agreements. There only insurgents and basically target practice

Wouldn't it make more sense to pretend they don't exist of have legitimate grievances with us, or should we just click our heels three times and wish them away?

By definition a terrorist is someone who kills and creates mayhem to advance a political objective. Negotiation means they win because it shows that their tactics work.

I would support a complete withdrawal from their countries which will satisfy a portion of their issues, but we can't negotiate else things will get much worse, IMHO.

Better to abandon our troops?

Absofuckinglutely we should. We use "diplomacy" with non-state actors all the goddamn time, including terrorist orgs (Syria comes to mind). This whole "we don't negotiate w/ terrorists" idea is a farse, and a foolish idea to begin with.

Always, but the terrorists won't like it.

When stalling for time to bring in special ops in a hostage situation.

When it involves freeing Americans (regardless of their past or their military status/lack thereof), yes.

So, would you want to exchange the same group of terrorists that caused 9/11 for one American? Are you kidding me?
