Nice job by NBC White House Correspondent Peter Alexander on the obvious contradiction coming from the WH regarding ransom money paid to terrorist overseas.
ALEXANDER: "Ransom money is ransom money, whether paid by the government or paid by individual families, so doesn't this announcement today risk endangering more Americans overseas?"Standing in is WH counter-terrorism advisor Lisa Monaco.
She really doesn't have an answer for him.
He hits her with a pretty good follow-up question here.
