Palestinian gunmen didn’t want to end up like Zarqawi
Posted by: McQ on Sunday, June 11, 2006

Tell me the death of Zarqawi didn't have an impact among the terrorist community in the Middle East:
Members of an armed Fatah militia which claimed to have kidnapped an Israeli Saturday transferred the individual in question, a U.S. citizen, to the custody of the Palestinian Authority before dawn Sunday.

The PA security forces subsequently handed the American over to the Israel Defense Forces. Defense officials believe once the militants discovered the person was indeed an American citizen, they took steps to end the matter quickly.

"Apparently, the kidnappers did not want to end up like Zarqawi," a defense official said
.
Heh ...

It strikes me as rather unlikely. The U.S. certainly doesn’t have the reputation of the Israelis for consequences-be-damned counterterrorism operations.

So, you know the reputation the US has among terrorists?

Actually they have just gained a reputation which gives them an ability to act quickly and surgically on intel gathered (whether true or not). That’s hardly a ’consequences-be-damned’ operation. And few would condemn or fault an operation rescue a kidnapped American citizen or punish those who kidnapped them.

Be sure to let me know when the U.S. orders airstrikes or a hostage rescue insertion in the West Bank.

This sounds more like an off-handed comment from a defense official, than anything else. It certainly dosent seem to present any information to suggest this was the actual motivation of the kidnappers. It just dosent add up, given some of the other comments in here.
