Cpl. Wassef Ali Hassoun

Fox News

A Marine who was reported abducted in Iraq and later turned up in his native Jordan was charged Thursday with desertion.

Cpl. Wassef Ali Hassoun (search) was charged following a five-month investigation into his June disappearance from a U.S. military camp near Fallujah, Iraq, according a statement from the 4th Marine Expeditionary Brigade (search).

Hassoun, of West Jordan, Utah (search), is accused of taking unauthorized leave from the unit where he served as an Arabic interpreter.

Hassoun also is charged with loss of government property and theft of a military firearm for allegedly leaving the Marine camp while still in possession of his 9 mm service pistol, as well as theft and wrongful appropriation of a government vehicle.

No date has been set for an Article 32 hearing, one of the first steps toward a possible court-martial in the military justice system, said Maj. Matt Morgan, the brigade spokesman.

Like I said in my previous posts, If he is a deserter he needs to get the maximum level of punishment!

If it's so, bring back the noose at Leavenworth.
