Stethem’s Revenge

 

By lex, on June 24th, 2010

In 1985, Navy diver Robert Dean Stethem was tortured and killed by hijackers aboard TWA Flight 987 in Beirut. He was singled out because he was an American serviceman. Stethem was posthumously awarded the Bronze Star, and had a destroyer named after him. There is also a sports complex that bears his name in Waldorf, CT MD.

Imad Mugniyeh was one of the hijackers aboard that flight. He died in a car bomb explosion in Damascus back in 2008.

Mohammed Ali Hamadeh ** was another of the terrorists that participated in the hijacking. He served 20 years of a life sentence in Germany before being secretly released. He linked back up with Hezbollah and wound up working with an al Qaeda cell in Pakistan. A Predator drone paid the postage on his miserable existence last week.

Two other hijackers remain at large. They can run, but they can’t hide.

And they’ll just die tired.
