Soldier Alive

It would seem that missing US soldier Wassef Ali Hassoun did not literally lose his head….but may have lost his head over a woman.

A Lebanese-born US Marine is alive and free after having been thought to have been decapitated by his captors in Iraq, the hostage’s brother said on Tuesday.

Wassef Ali Hassoun’s brother Sami, speaking from the northern Lebanese city of Tripoli, said his family had received word Hassoun was alive and had been released in the early hours of Tuesday, but declined to specify the source of the information.

The US military has confirmed that Hassoun went missing from his unit but declined comment on media reports that he had been lured away from his base in Iraq after a romance with an Arab woman.

I am sure had he not been an Arab and a Muslim, his fate would have been very different.
