“Army sergeant arrested as deserter; anti-American notes found in his backpack,” from WIStv.com, with thanks to all who sent this in:
(Wellington, FL-AP) May 5, 2005 – An Army sergeant who left his Georgia post six months ago has been tracked down at his parent’s home after a notebook with anti-American and anti-Semitic writings was found in his discarded backpack.
Sheriff’s officials in Palm Beach County, Florida, say 25-year-old Karim Iraq has been arrested as a deserter and is being held without bail.
His father says the soldier fled Fort Stewart after the Army extended his enlistment because he had soured on the US military mission in Iraq. The father says the soldier also was harassed over his Palestinian heritage. Zayed Iraq says his son was always made to feel that he was an outsider.
Of course. None of it was his fault or his responsibility. It never is.
