Germany Frees Murderer For Hostage

Mohammad Ali Hamadi, the Hezbollah terrorist who tortured and murdered U.S. Navy diver Robert Stethem in 1985 received a sentence from a German court of "life without the possibility of parole". Today he is a free man because Germany negotiated his release in return for the release of a German citizen held hostage by Islamists in Iraq.

The message from Germany to the United States? Forget our promises to you, and forget our signed extradition treaty with the U.S.

The message from Germany to terrorists all over the world? Hostage-taking pays.

Read the whole sickening story by Debbie Schlussel.

UPDATE 12/28: The Germans have made their bed, and now it appears they are lying in it.
