Hostage Negotiations 101

Stalling for Time coverThey're extremely agitated. They're desperate to get what they want but have run out of options. Now they've seized hostages and are making dire threats. You should keep the innocent safe but avoid deploying unnecessary force against the hostage-takers. What to do? For some advice on hostage situations — specifically on the House Republicans' budget/debt ceiling demands — I turned to Gary Noesner, formerly the chief of the FBI's Crisis Negotiation Unit. A thirty year FBI veteran, Gary is one of the top hostage negotiators in the world. His politically impartial advice is well worth listening to. And his memoir Stalling for Time: My Life as an FBI Hostage Negotiator (Random House, 2010) is a great read, highly recommended! Total runtime forty three minutes. Audī alteram partem.
