Suicide Bomber Double-Crossed

Michael Ledeen says it best:

Back when Hezbollah blew up the Marine barracks in Lebanon, many of us wondered if the "suicide bomber" knew he was going to die, or whether he'd been told he had a chance to escape, and the bomb had been remotely detonated.

So here's a story from USA Today about a case in which the martyr-to-be thought he was going to run away...but they tricked him. Probably because it would look bad for the ideology if martyrs turned out to be common thugs who placed bombs and then ran away...
This guy got done to him exactly what he was gonna do to others.
