Corporal Wassef Ali Hassoun, 34, a naturalised American who worked as an Arabic interpreter for the service, went missing from Camp Lejeune in North Carolina in 2005 after visiting his family in Utah.
"The Naval Criminal Investigative Service worked with Cpl Hassoun to turn himself in and return to the US to face charges under the Uniformed Code of Military Justice," the Marine Corps said in a statement.
According to media reports, Hassoun first fled to Canada and then to Lebanon, where he was born.
A Marine official reportedly said Hassoun's case was not linked to that of US Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl who was released in a prisoner exchange with the Taliban after spending five years as a prisoner of war.

A US Marine who had been listed as a deserter for 10 years is back in custody after giving himself up in Bahrain.

This is the Marine who disappeared, reappeared, appeared to have been beheaded then reappeared.

Why turn himself in now? Curious.

Just thought id post incase anyone had missed it.

Just my play, if he understood the language over there that might have given him pause to reflect. After all he knows both sides of the story.

Just observing.

Found this on another site with an alleged comment from him Team Leader?




I was his team leader, the truth? yes, he was seditious, a malingerer, and a coward...a traitor? that may be stretching it; nevertheless, he will live his remaining days without honor. There are so many details regarding this case that have been left unknown to the public...not because they were neccesarily classified, but because NCIS dropped the ball. I'll give you one piece...the day before he "disappeared"...Hassoun cashed a max allowance of $500 dollars at base disbursing. In case you don't understand the significance of that, nobody ever max cashed a check because there was nothing to spend your money on, you did'nt need to have that kind of cash on you...and we were scheduled to go back to Mahmudiyah within that week. Once at Mahmudiyah, his chances of jumping the wall would have diminished greatly. Just saying.

If that's true it would appear he skipped out because of fear. The military is definitely not for everyone and while i wouldn't hate him for deserting, he could have at least had the testicular fortitude to see his contract through.

Sounds a lot like the plot to Homeland.

Here's a theory for ya...he never was a deserter.

He was on mission, posing as an interpreter that went awol.

Weird for his team leader to say that, considering the story is that he went missing (awol) after visiting family in Utah.




...went missing from Camp Lejeune in North Carolina in 2005 after visiting his family in Utah.


So he was in the States when he went missing, not abroad.

If you were going on leave to visit family, the equiv of £300 odd isn't an unreasonable amount to want to cash up if you were planning to buy gifts and have a little pocket cash while you were home.

The sinister me was thinking something similar just seems a little "odd" that he has decided to hand himself in now after all this time and with the recent "release" of Bergdahl timing seems a tad off!

I bet he's hoping he'll get the same treatment as Bergdahl.

Perhaps all of this was planned; a cover story and for 9 years he was an undercover playing both sides of the fence; now he is possibly being debriefed.
