I’m really surprised. No, really, I am.
A kidnapped Filipino truck driver was Tuesday still being held by kidnappers in Iraq, officials said, despite the withdrawal of all Filipino troops from the country.
The Philippine government Monday bowed to the kidnappers’ demands by completing the withdrawal of the small contingent of police and troops from Iraq, more than one month ahead of schedule.
Yeah, because you can ALWAYS trust a terrorist to keep his word.
*UPDATE* - Well well well. I may have spoken too soon.
Filipino truck driver Angelo dela Cruz, held hostage for nearly two weeks, has been freed, a spokesman for the Iraqi National Congress said Tuesday.
“The (United Arab) Emirates embassy has freed the Filipino hostage,” said spokesman Haider al Bandar. He provided no further details.
