AP reported yesterday that Germany released convicted murderer and airline hijacker Mohammed Ali Hamadi. Hamadi had been serving a life sentence for the 1985 TWA hijacking and murder of Navy diver Robert Dean Stethem. Germany had insisted on trying Hamadi and wouldn't extradite him to America because we have the death penalty.
A German foreign ministry spokesman denied any connection between Hamadi's release and the earlier release by terrorist kidnappers of a German woman, Susanne Osthoff, who had been held for three weeks in Iraq. Right.
On his release, Hamadi left Germany, destination unknown. Let's hope that when Hamadi engages in future acts of terrorism, which he most certainly will, they occur in Germany.
