  Our "Allies" the Germans
While I am sure that J. F'n Kerry has a different view of this and would immediately leap to defend his European paramours. Because if you listen to any Donk bloviate, the Europeans are better/smarter/more sensible than any of us schtoopid AmeriKKKans.
Even better, the release of this mutt appears to be part and parcel of a hostage trade with Iraqi terrorists. Nothing like a little appeasement is there Fraulien.
Germany frees jailed Hizbollah man wanted by US - Yahoo! News: "BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany has quietly released a Hizbollah member jailed for life for the murder of a
U.S. Navy diver, apparently disregarding Washington's wish to extradite him, diplomats and German officials said on Tuesday.

'He served his term,' Eva Schmierer, a spokeswoman for Germany's justice ministry, told a news conference.

Sources in Berlin and Beirut said earlier that Mohammad Ali Hammadi, convicted of killing Navy diver Robert Dean Stethem in Beirut during the 1985 hijacking of a TWA flight and sentenced to life in prison, was flown back to Lebanon last week.

German legal sources said he had been released on Thursday and travelled to the Lebanese capital on Friday. Hizbollah sources confirmed that Hammadi had returned.

Schmierer said her ministry had never received a formal extradition request from Washington. But diplomats in Berlin said the German government was well aware that the Americans would have liked Hammadi extradited to the United States, where he is under indictment for Stethem's murder.

The diplomats said Hammadi's release could complicate relations between Germany and the United States, which have pledged to cooperate closely in anti-terrorism efforts"
