Huge news, which I just picked up from InstaPundit: Abu Abbas, head of the Palestinian Liberation Front, has been apprehended in Iraq. He was arrested west of Baghdad after being turned away at the Syrian border. Apparently the Administration’s warnings to Syria are doing some good.
Abbas was the mastermind of the 1985 hijacking of the cruise ship Achille Lauro, in the course of which an American was murdered and thrown overboard. He was convicted of murder in absentia in Italy and sentenced to five life terms, which he will now presumably serve.
