US Navy Releases Terrorist

US Navy Releases Terrorist

The US Navy today announced that it has released a senior Al Quaeda terrorist after questioning him extensively for 27 days while being held prisoner aboard a US aircraft carrier in the Arabian Sea.

In a humanitarian gesture, the terrorist was given $50 US and a white 1962 Ford Fairlane automobile upon being released from custody.

The photo below shows the terrorist on his way home just after being released by the Navy.

sounds like a good plan...

after all the terrorist is spared the inhumane treatment of 'panties-on-the-head'!

Those old Fords would do about 110 on the flats---so you pretty much need the cat to get to the 160 mph---dunno otherwise---no second chances.

As a former owner of a 61 Falcon 144" CI, I take issue with your lemon statement. }:^p

Yes, 144ci 61 Falcons were hot. But that was because of the lousy oil circulation system. Oh, and I almost forgot, the exploding front shock towers and rear shocks bolted to the trunk floors with BIG washers. :)

Standard practice in the "old Navy" when you release a man from the brig you give him $50 to purchase the "health and comfort" items he needed to maintain personal hygiene. It was known euphemistically as a "flying fifty"... appropriate, huh?

Did they let him take a copy of the Queeran?

LOL!! Is that a Fairlane? Looks more like a Falcon to me. No matter, it's still damned funny.

50 Bucks and a car. Wow! And the MSM says that we Americans are not big hearted. Do you think that Muslims would be so generous.

All they would they give us is our head on a platter. Sheesh!

I got to researching that (I really don't have a life ;).

1962 Fairlane
1962 Falcon

Fairlane has tail fins, Falcon does not. We report, you decide :)

I'm sure he got the book: two hands---white gloves-----and boy did he get a flush when the CVN 65 caught up with him.

Don't laugh at that Falcon too much. Lee Iacocca morphed that sucker into the Mustang.
