Like We didn't see this coming

Man Convicted of Pope Assassination Attempt Fails to Report to Police contains no surprises. Memhet Ali Agca was paroled Thursday with orders to report to Turkish police. Guess who has yet to see him.
I love the last sentence of the story, "Agca would remain free until an appeals court reviewed the case." Hate to break it to them, but they've seen the last of him. Too many places in that region (Iran, Syria) will gladly give him a hero's welcome, even if he couldn't inflict a fatal wound at point blank range.
That last is probably why See-Dubya at Jawa Report thinks he is in more danger from his employers who had him try to kill John Paul II than from revenge crazed Catholics. He makes a good case for it and may be right. Either way, it will be interesting to see how this plays out.
