The Danger of Dealing with Terrorists

Remember the German woman held hostage in Iraq? And the killer of a US Navy diver that was released shortly before she was? And the German government denying that his release from "Life Imprisonment" had anything to do with her sudden freedom? And the German government flatly swearing up and down that no ransom was paid?

Guess who was discovered with a portion of the marked bills used to pay the non-existent ransom? If you said "the hostage," give yourself a pat on the back AND a gold star. (hat tip to LittleGreenFootballs) So it looks like the German government gave away a convicted murderer of a US Serviceman for a fraudulent kidnapping scheme.

Tell you all what - we know where there is a busload of German tourists staying in town RIGHT NOW. How much do you think we could split with them if we "kidnapped" the whole lot? European appeasers continue to doom the continent to irrelevance by 2050.

Susanne Osthoff

...While the abduction was initially assumed to be politically motivated and probably instigated by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, there has been some speculation as to the real identity of the kidnappers. The very unprofessional quality of the video, along with the fact that the German government has long opposed American involvement in Iraq, has led some experts to believe that the kidnappers might be common criminals trying to extort money.

Others point out that the timing of the abduction very shortly after a change of government in Germany and during a discussion of possible German participation in the training of Iraqi police forces does point towards a politically motivated kidnapping. Al Jazeera carried an article quoting Susanne Osthoff as saying that her kidnappers were not criminals and only demanded German humanitarian aid for Iraq's Sunni Arabs and stated clearly that they did not want a ransom.[1]

Susanne Osthoff was freed from her captors on December 18, 2005.

In an interview with Arabic news-channel Al-Jazeera on December 23, she alluded that she wanted to return to Iraq to continue her projects. She was warned by German authorities that this will put her life in danger again and strongly discouraged from returning to Iraq.

In her first television interview in Germany, with ZDF, aired on Wednesday, December 28, Susanne Osthoff reacted to questions in an incoherent manner and was only willing to be interviewed in traditional Muslim clothing. Because much of what she said would not have made much sense to most German viewers, the interview was heavily edited for broadcast, but is available as full length transcription on 'ZDF's news portal'.

Big rumor at 35th St. that the commander of Personnel is getting indicted in a ghost payroller scheme. It seems that he is accused of carrying a sergeant friend of his (we will call him DN) as working in the random drug unit for more than a year while the sergeant stayed home with his sick wife. A relative of the now retired sergeant gets caught up in the hired truck nonsense and gives up the sergeant in an attempt to cut a deal with the feds for himself. They check records (credit cards and the like) and it seems that there were times that he was shown as working while he was not even in Illinois! The ends result in that the wife dies, and sarge runs off with the girlfriend and gets married a couple months later. Just a rumor at this point, but sounds like a good one.

Hello Mikey Acosta, do you need a roommate in the joint?

Yeah, it's Brad Woods...but he is a pretty straight guy...not saying it couldn't happen but doesn't sound like something he would be involved with.

Woods is the commander now, but he was still getting bossed around by Lil Billy Powers when that sgt allegedly worked in random drug, and I do mean allegedly.
Now Woods gets his marching orders from the real Commander of Personnel, Sgt Tony Carrothers!

As usual with dealings with the rest fot the world. The universal response is "Yankee go Home" Just give us your cash and get out of our country! But the U.S. just loves to give our tax dollars to all these third world nations.

Why don't you guys get some facts straight before you start putting peoples names in here?

Rumors abound and over 99% 0f them are wrong, lies, or vicious attempts to get back at someone.

Maybe you all forget that we all know people and some of them are our friends. Maybe you forget that if you piss enough bosses off, they can really get nasty and make all of our lives miserable.

We laugh about the terrorist groups and think Chicago? Well they are here, and just wait the time will come, and when it does the we will...more than likely be attending a few PO's funerals. I saw pull the troops outta the middle east and tighten up the Canadian and Mexican borders.

The majority of U.S. funded terrorism funding which was uncovered by the G came right out of the Mosque in Bridgeview. Ask any ghetto liquor stor owner where they worship...the mosque in Bridgeview!
