Taleban Frees French Hostage

reporter (666905) writes | more than 6 years ago

United States

reporter writes "In an earlier Slashdot discussion, several participants worried that the Taleban might kill its French hostages upon the election of Nicolas Sarkozy. Well, the BBC reports that the Taleban has released the hostages. This situation parallels the one with the American hostages in Iran 26 years ago. Then, after Ronald Reagan was sworn into the office of the presidency, Teheran promptly released all 52 American hostages. So, is Sarkozy the Reagan of France? Does Sarkozy strike the same fear into the hearts of terrorists?"
