Comments: Iraqi "militant group" denies murder of US Marine

This is good news, I think. I agree, they need taking care of though.

Happy Independence Day, Michael. :)

I hate to say this, but Cpl. Hassoun's fate is sealed. In my opinion, the reason this group is denying that he is dead is because they realize it would not go over well with the fence-sitting public that they had killed a fellow Muslim. Just speculation, I hope I'm wrong, but I will be surprised if he was found alive.

Maybe they're backtracking because they've been spooked by the Marines' reputation? In any case, it's not gonna play out well for them in the long run.

This story has gotten much murkier today. Has Hassoun agreed to not go back to the Marines? Has he defected? Is he being coerced to say anything?
