Wow...just wow.

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse...A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

"This guy is the Taliban equivalent of the 'Home Alone" burglars," one U.S. official said.




Haha!

I don't think it works that way...but your effort is appreciated; please step into the cell.

Too many people on both sides of the spectrum have fallen into this mentality that a full one half of the country are the enemy for having different beliefs...in a country based on freedom of expression. It is this infighting that allows the focus to be taken away from "we the people" being able to watch, and have control over government corruption and ineptitude that is running rampant in our leadership.

People should be working towards fixing problems, not creating them.

A deal's a deal...  poor fool was probably trying to provide for his family.  
A questionable  practice anyway.. how many guys just turn in someone they don't like?   Which satiates the process equally well.

He's probably in danger from former compatriots and figures he'll be harder to reach in police custody.

This reminds me of Cleavon Little's sheriff Bart in BLAZING SADDLES.  He holds himself hostage to the crowd that wants to kill him... too funny.
