Freed Non-Hostage Deserts

RightThinkingGirl humorously humorously points out that the story of Cpl. Wassef Ali Hassoun would make a good movie:

This is one of those stories that would make really good fiction. It's got everything: a good looking Marine who you really want to believe is doing the right thing even as he's being pursued for a terrible crime, a mysterious kidnapping, a strange appearance at the US Embassy in Lebanon, the possibility of treason. I don't know if there's a love story involved, but if there is, it's even better.
Hassoun is the Marine who claimed he was abducted in Iraq, only to show up safe and sound in Jordan. After coming stateside, he refused to give interviews and no one has seen him since the 29th of December.

Unless he was kidnapped by Canadians, the good Corporal is going to find himself in a world of trouble when he resurfaces.
