Jack Idema Hero ? Mercenary ? or Fool?

This is about a man who was a retired member of the special forces. It is very interesting. I think the man is a great american and a Hero. The radio interview is an hour long but well worth the listen. I would like to thank Alison of "Making Headlines" for the meat of this post.

An Afghan Holiday
I think the best way to really get an idea of the full story behind Jack Idema is to listen to the radio interview below which is about 15 minutes long. A NY station interviews Jack from his cell in Afghanistan.It covers 9/11 in a way ive probably never been exposed to or really understood fully and frankly is a pretty scary story. You cant really dismiss the story when you get to grips with where Jack is and why he is there. Quite simply.Then there is the fact that this guy is stuck in a part of the world the BBC tried hard this evening to publicise as the next big thing in tourism. 30 years ago im sure the odd hippy probably liked to follow some magic trail around the bleak landscape but right now it's a hole and this guys is stuck in it.Jack Idema's story is covered atRottweiler Puppy

  1. Thanks Troll. is it an hour long? i lost track of time! Do email Cao if u r interested in getting regular updates emailed to you to post as and when.

  2. thanks Ali I will... and yes its an hour, a well worth listening to hour. Thanks

  3. Really interesting and I don't know what to make of it. I heard part of the interview while Troll was listening - I don't think the guy is a kook. He's legitimate but he's getting screwed big time for some reason. It doesn't make any sense.

  4. I see RP has added a link to you in his post earlier in the week. Yours was an excellent post over ATW re Jo btw.
