Thank you for your kind words about our military. I do not understand the governments reversal in the decision to let him in. When the visa was originally denied, I thought that the State Department had finally gotten some Chutzpah.
Maybe, just maybe he could become a hostage for 454 days. Nothing personal, just payback.
Just when you think he's the archetypal sleazy, reflexively Marxist Brooklyn pol, he flips the script on you.
