Kidnapped Marine moved to "place of safety"

Al Jazeera is reporting that US Marine Corporal Wassef Ali Hassoun has been moved to a "place of safety" by terrorists who held him hostage. The Al Qaeda-connected group that held him threatened last week to behead the Marine if US forces did not withdraw from Iraq.

Details are forthcoming.

This smells. Bad.

I wonder if they are just trying the old smoke and mirrors thing...till the ones involved can be spirited away?

Anyhow, hope your forth was a good one.

Okay, I have so many questions. Is this guy really AWOL? Did he turn? Was he really kidnapped? Who is supporting his family? It takes money to go into seclusion? What kind of Marine was this guy before he went off on his own?

Now CNN has a story that says Brother: Captors have released Marine
Curioser and curioser.
