    U.S. Marine Hassoun at Beirut U.S. Embassy, Relative Says

    15 minutes ago Add Top Stories - Reuters to My Yahoo!


    TRIPOLI, Lebanon (Reuters) - A Lebanese-born U.S. Marine who went missing in Iraq (news - web sites) and was thought to have been beheaded is in the U.S. embassy in Beirut, one of the man's relatives said Thursday.

    "Wassef is at the U.S. embassy," said Abdelhamid Hassoun, whose cousin Wassef Ali Hassoun went missing from his unit in Iraq last month.

    And Lebanon is his home. Why would he go there? ... go figure... :rolleyes:

    You're right OCA, at this point he looks like a deserter to me too.

    Maybe they ought to just be handed over to the muslims.

    -I guess if they ARE muslims, that won't help.

    Some of you are claiming this guy should be executed if he in fact DID desert? wow...

    A wise man doesn't make judgements w/o the facts. The only facts you have are:

    Guy went missing.

    Guy appeared to have been kidknapped.

    Guy turned up.
