Germany’s hostage Exchange

Ok, alleged hostage exchange. Some stories are so wrong you have to follow the links even though you completely trust the blogger. Captain Ed wrote today about the release of a German Hizbollah prisoner. He was wanted by us for killing a Navy diver in 1985. Instead he has been secretly (ok – it’s out in the open now) freed to Lebanon. And guess what? The German hostage in Iraq was freed also!
Hostage taking is horrible. But buying them out is not conducive to the GWOT.
