Germany's Misguided View Of How To Fight Terrorism

We missed this last week, and we apologize. This is a news story I didn't hear the press pick up, and was only reminded about it today in a discussion at work. So, I came home and did some research, and lo and behold, my co-worker was right. Germany has lost it's collective mind. We are a world at war against radical Islamo-fascists--against any terrorism perpetuated on free nations and the people supporting them--and Germany releases a terrorist from prison that we still have a pending case on.

A Lebanese man serving a life sentence for the 1985 hijacking of a TWA jetliner and killing of a U.S. Navy diver has been paroled after 19 years, a law enforcement official said Tuesday.

He gets 19 years for doing this? For participating in the cold-blooded murder of a US serviceman? 19 years? Ladies and gentlemen, in my world this piece of filth wouldn't have lasted 19 minutes in the prison I'd toss his butt into.

Mohammed Ali Hamadi was released from prison and has left Germany, said Doris Moeller-Scheu, spokeswoman for the Frankfurt prosecutor's office. She said she did not know his destination.

Anyone care to make a wager on this? He's not going back to his native Lebanon; they have agreed to hand him over should he end up there, and our efforts in the Middle East have helped them in recent months, including a 99% withdrawal of Syrian troops from their country. No, this piece of garbage is either going to gaza, or he might seek out some work in Northern Africa. He's not done in his life yet. He hasn't reached Paradise.

Hamadi's case came up for a court-mandated review, and he was released after an expert assessment and a hearing, she said.

If this piece of trash turns up on a battlefield where we're fighting, I'd like to have a word or two with that "expert" making the "assessment" he should have been released.

TWA flight 847 from Athens, Greece, to Rome was hijacked to Beirut, Lebanon, where the hijackers shot U.S. Navy diver Robert Dean Stethem, 23, of Waldorf, Md., and dumped his body on the tarmac.

German federal officials declined to comment extensively and said the case was a matter for state authorities. Justice Ministry spokeswoman Eva Schmierer said Germany did not have any request from the United States for Hamadi's extradition.

Of course they declined to comment intially, however their final word on the matter (bolded above) is an outright falsehood. We wanted him back in 1985. We've already spoken with Lebanon about him. Either the Germans called and no one was home, or their lying. I'm betting on the latter, not the former. If I were the president, I'd be calling Merkel and asking a few questions.

A spokesman for the Foreign Ministry, Martin Jaeger, said there was no connection between Hamadi's release and the recent freeing of former hostage Susanne Osthoff, a German woman released over the weekend after spending more than three weeks as a captive in Iraq.

Uh-huh. Sure. Just like the rest of Europe. If it does come out that she was released as part of a ransom deal, I'm not going to be happy because it's then quite likely that we will find him on the battlefield. If he's going to Iraq, he's not there to take in the sites, folks.

Stethem, 23, was beaten and shot on June 15, 1985, while the plane was in Beirut. He was the only casualty during the hijacking ordeal, in which 39 Americans were held hostage for 17 days. He received the Bronze Star and Purple Heart decorations, and a U.S. Navy guided missile destroyer is named in his honor.

Hamadi was arrested at the Frankfurt airport on Jan. 13, 1987, when customs officials discovered liquid explosives in his luggage.

And this is one of the things I was referring to previously. This guys was nailed in '87, quite possibly in the commission of a hijacking similar to the one in '85. That was never determined why he had the explosives. They tried him to keep him out of our hands. They knew there was a better than 50-50 chance that Hamadi would end up at room temperature in America.

U.S. authorities had requested his extradition so he could stand trial in the United States, but the Germans, who have no death penalty, insisted on prosecuting Hamadi.

Hamadi was supposedly sent back top Lebanon byt the germans, but Lord knows if he actually went back home. He was connected with Hezbollah, which has a wing in Iran, and considered one of the largest for the faction in the Middle-East. All I'm waiting for is the day this piece of crap shows back up on the terrorism map. It won't be long, and this time I want him caught by us. Enough of these limp-wristed, panty-waists trying to use their methods for handling terrorists. Hamadi was handed a life sentance, and he was out in 19 years. He's going to go back to his old ways; if you believe otherwise, you're a fool. He'll be back, and we'll be waiting.
