Fatah militia kidnaps American, releases him really fast.

Middle East: Thankfully the idiot is safe after a really stupid move, but the spokesman quote is funny.

Members of an armed Fatah militia which claimed to have kidnapped an Israeli Saturday transferred the individual in question, a U.S. citizen, to the custody of the Palestinian Authority before dawn Sunday. The PA security forces subsequently handed the American over to the Israel Defense Forces. Defense officials believe once the militants discovered the person was indeed an American citizen, they took steps to end the matter quickly. "Apparently, the kidnappers did not want to end up like Zarqawi," a defense official said.
