I can only hope that he is a master of disguises, knows more languages than Pope John-Paul, and can fight off thousands at a time when needed. I also hope he makes it out of there alive and well.

More than likely his captors got themselves drugged up and forgot to tie him up. Any way it happened more power to him.

The French run Djibouti, just to the north. If this story is so then he should soon be out of there.

I’ll bet he’s going to be extradited back to Somalia to face charges of 3 counts of murder.

Woo-hoo! What a dude. I’ll never talk about cheese eating surrender monkeys again.

Unless of course the French decide to prosecute him for “murder.” That’s what would happen under an Obama administration...

He was doing his job, and doing it well, as a French Spy. He will be a guest of President Sarkosy at the Paris presidential palace soon. The media may not know it but, such things are rewarded—if in secret.

I’ve seen no more of this story. Wish there was some follow-up news to find out just what happened.
