What has he been doing the last 60 years?

Probably the same thing as John Demjanjuk, who has fought denaturalization and deportation since 1977. The United States extradited Demjanjuk to Israel, where he was convicted in 1988 of being "Ivan the Terrible" and sentenced to death. The Israeli Supreme Court reversed the conviction after evidence surfaced that another man was "Ivan the Terrible."

The U.S. government stripped Demjanjuk of citizenship and ordered him deported in 2005 for having served as a Nazi prison camp guard in Poland and Germany.

These men were victims of war too and their only alleged crimes were following the orders of their superiors.

As a side note, one could also argue their case by comparing their actions to the Haditha 7, which almost everyone here would likely support their innocence.

It's time to let it go and leave these individuals alone with their own consciences and let them die in peace.........

No, they were accomplices to mass murder of their neighbors and fellow countrymen. They should have fell on their swords if they had any humanity.

John Demjanjuk died last March, never having been proven to be "Ivan the Terrible." The Israelis let him go-- only the Germans insisted on convicting him of manufactured charges.

I don't know what satisfaction people get out of hounding an 88 year old man for what happened in the middle of the worst war in history 65 odd years ago--I hope it makes some of you happy, to see this guy badgered and harassed at the end of his life, like Demjanjuk was, for the crime of patrolling the outside wire.
