He is an apparent deserter. Reports are indeed that he abandoned his buddies, abandoned his post, and walked off. Well see what the ultimate truth of it is, but if he did … hes a deserter at wartime ….
On that video, he is collaborating with the enemy. Under duress or not thats really not relevant hes making accusations about the behavior of the military in Afghanistan that are unfounded, saying that there are no rules, hes lying about how he was captured, saying he lagged behind the patrol. … So we know that this private is a liar. Were not sure if hes a deserter. But the media needs to hit the pause button, and not portray this guy as a hero. … Hes making anti-American statements, I mean, he wants to investigate Islam, blah blah blah. …
If he walked away from his post and his buddies at wartime … I dont care how hard it sounds, as far as Im concerned, the Taliban can save us a lot of legal hassles and legal bills.

This story does make me feel a certain fondness for Obama.
Im going to be interviewed on Chicagos Little Alex in Wonderland radio show this coming Thursday at 4:00 Central; well probably be talking about agorism. (I was interviewed last week on James Hines New Orleans Saint and Fools radio show, but it doesnt seem to be online yet; the topic was the use of logical fallacies in political discourse.)
