Report: Kidnapped Marine Is Alive and Free 

No official confirmation yet, so keep your fingers crossed. But according to a BBC report, the family of Wassef Ali Hassoun was told this morning that the Lebanese-born U.S. Marine has been released by his captors.

A militant group claimed on its website to have beheaded Hassoun over the weekend, but in a televised report yesterday al-Jazeera quoted members of Islamic Response who said that Hassoun was alive and safe.
