Captured Marine In U.S. Embassy

Cpl Wassef Ali Hassoun is in the U.S. Embassy in Beirut.

WASHINGTON (NBC) - Marine Cpl. Wassef Ali Hassoun, who went missing in Iraq more than two weeks ago, has turned up at the U.S. Embassy in Lebanon, the Pentagon and State Department said Thursday.

He was said to be in good health and the State Department said he was talking with U.S. officials. "We were able to go get him," State Department spokesman Richard Boucher said, without elaborating.

Earlier a Marine spokesman confirmed an NBC News report that the Navy is investigating whether Hassoun's disappearance might be part of a kidnapping hoax. "It would be fair to say they're not ruling that out,"said Maj. Nat Fahy, adding that the investigation by the Navy's Criminal Investigative Service is still being treated as missing person investigation.

Clearly there is something fishy about the circumstances surrounding his capture and release, which the NCIS investigation should resolve.
