We don't know who is more at fault, the U.S. congressman who should have known better, or the lanky Army Reserve soldier who endorsed Ron Paul on national television in violation of military regulations.
First of all, we don't have a dog in the hunt for the Republican Presidential nomination. We do oppose Obama, just as we have been openly critical in the past of Bush, Dick "Halliburton" Cheney, and the megalomaniac former Defense Secretary, Donald Rumsfeld.
Many of Ron Paul's supporters read us daily, and we mean no disrespect to them. But when an E-4 in uniform goes on national television and endorses a candidate, gushing to viewers that he felt he was in the presence of a "rock star," something is wrong with his judgment.
In another scoop for our readers over the drones at ARMY TIMES, STARS & STRIPES, as well as the "mainstream media" types who patiently wait for hand-outs to re-write in the Pentagon press office and say "Jill Metzger, who?" we reproduce here police mug photos of Thorsen that shows the low-ranking Army Reservist is no stranger to being arrested.
We have been able to - with the help of a public-spirited citizen on FreeRepublic.com - obtain arrest pix for Thorsen when he was nabbed by the Hillsborough County Sheriffs Dept in Florida June 17, 2006 on burglary, among other charges. The 28 year-old GI's face shows up again in a mug shot when he was picked up Aug. 25, 2006 by the Lee County (Fl.) Sheriffs Dept. for parole violation.
Thorsen said on TV he had been in the military "ten years." If so, he may have had a court-martial or Article 15 in his background, since still being an E-4 after a decade in uniform is something unusual, even for a doofus.
For those of you who caught Thorsen's television debut Jan. 3, those in the CNN control room must have freaked out when their female reporter was interviewing the neck-tatooed soldier as he let loose some very "politically-incorrect" ideas about Israel.
Before the plug was pulled (CNN said they had "technical difficulties") Thorsen uttered some remarks that critics might call anti-Israeli or even anti-Semitic.
"Iran is Israel's problem, not ours," he opined. And the fatigue-clad enlisted man allowed that the U.S. shouldn't go around the world "picking fights" with other nations.
We'd love to be a bug on the wall at Thorsen's Army Reserve unit when the JAG and GI's commanding officer try to decide what course of action to take. Will Congressman Ron Paul of Texas (Thorsen is not one of his constituents) ride to the rescue of the politicized soldier? Stay tuned.
