Philippines' Military Chief Expects to Be Freed Sunday

If all goes as planned, this hostage situation will be over in time for the Super Bowl.

A top Philippine military official says he is hopeful that Muslim separatists will release him and other peace negotiators on Sunday after apparently holding them against their will.

That's a very conveinant kidnapping.
" We're going to kidnapp you but don't worry, we will be letting you go at about noon on Thursday."

Using his cell phone to communicate, Brigadier-General Ben Dolorfino said Saturday that it is likely that he will be allowed to return after one more night.

Well, he would leave tonight but who wants to miss Saturday game night. Yatzee, Monopoly and then a sudden death round robin tournament of Twister? I'm there!!

General Dolorfino, Defense Under Secretary Ramon Santos and several other people traveled to the southern Philippine island of Jolo on Friday to hold talks with a faction of the Moro National Liberation Front.

Apparently the MNLF wanted to talk a little longer than everyone expected.

News reports quote General Dolorfino as saying they are being treated as guests and their security detail has not been disarmed.

Then this really isn't being held against your will. See, if I was kidnapped and allowed access to firearms, I'd be home in time for lunch.
