Power Line: Archbishop Freed

Archbishop Basile Georges Casmoussa, kidnapped just yesterday in Mosul, has been released . It appears that the kidnapping may have been of the for-profit rather than political variety, as it has now been disclosed that the kidnappers demanded a $200,000 ransom. At this point, the facts are still unclear, but the Vatican denies having paid anything to secure the Archbishop's release.
