Sept. 30 - Four Soviet diplomats kidnapped in Lebanon, 1 killed but other three released unharmed after a relative of the terrorist leaders was kidnapped and killed by the Soviet KGB.
As I remember, the Soviets also sent some body parts of some other terrorists to the kidnappers. When the Soviets were finished there were bad guys walking around without noses, ears, fingers, etc. The Soviets knew how to deal with them and to hell with “public opinion”. Water boarding would have been easy.
