Germany releases Terrorist

I had high hopes for the new chancellor Angela Merkel. Hezbollah member Mohammed Ali Hamadi has returned to Lebanon after being secretly released in Germany, where he was serving a life sentence for the 1985 hijacking of a TWA jetliner and killing of a US navy diver Robert Stethem. It appears she made a trade for a German hostage, Susanne Osthoff, that was released Sunday in Iraq. The German government is denying the charge of course. It will be interesting to see what happens to a nation that negotiates with a terrorist.
