Somali Islamist rebels sentence French hostage to death
Sadly, a member of the free world intelligence community has paid the ultimate price, after four-plus years detention at the hands of Somali terrorists. Honor him - S.L.
(Reuters) - Somali militants linked to al Qaeda said on Wednesday they had sentenced a French agent to death after a failed attempt by French armed forces to rescue him at the weekend.
Al Shabaab said in a statement the decision to kill Denis Allex, held hostage in Somalia since 2009, was unanimous and followed three years of what it called "exhaustive attempts at negotiations" over his release.
"With the rescue attempt ... France has voluntarily signed Allex's death warrant," the militants said in an emailed statement that was also posted on the group's official Twitter handle.
The militants put up fierce resistance when French commandos flew into southern Somalia by helicopter under the cover of darkness early on Saturday to try to free Allex. Later that day, the Paris government said it believed their hostage had been killed.

I always liked what the KGB did when Hezbollah grabbed a couple of their guys in the Lebanon, back in the 80's; THEY grabbed a couple of the Hez and sent them back in pieces, said “Give us back our people or it gets worse.”
There were never any more Soviets kidnappings after that.
Out society doesn't have the stomach to deal with terrorists effectively. If I was in charge things would be different. VERY different. I’d make Genghis Kahn look like a Liberal.
