Munich Mastermind Dies At 73

Abu Daoud, the man who claimed to be the mastermind behind the 1972 Munich Olympics massacre, has died, according to the official news agency of the Palestinian Authority.

Daoud, also known as Mohammed Oudeh, died Friday night. The former Palestinian politician and commander in the Fatah and PLO movements was 73.

"I regret nothing," he told Germany's Spiegel TV in an interview four years ago. "You can only dream that I would apologize."

Daoud also published an autobiography, giving a first-hand look at the rise of the Palestinian resistance leading up to the attack at Munich. The book is titled "Memoirs of a Palestinian Terrorist," as well as, "Palestine -- A History of the Resistance Movement, by the Sole Survivor of Black September."

The HQ is looking forward to Daoud reaching his personal place in hell via his first class ticket.
