    I have been following this story since the beginning. I would say that some more details will come out on this and may change what we have heard. Right now, and I don't expect to change much, where there is smoke there is fire, and there is a hell of a lot of smoke!

    MM---I wonder if home schooling has anything to do with this guy seeming to be a loner and misfit according to others in his unit that were interviewed. I've always maintained that in home schooling the person might become accomplished in the book learning part of it, but without interaction with others like you get in a school environment IMHO many times the person is lacking in social skills and just flat knowing how to deal with others. You don't learn that in a book! Add to that the possibility that he may have some kind of a mild mental disorder that wasn't detected because he was a "stay at home learner" and it may explain part of what caused a problem when he got out onto his own after he left home. Just wondering and throwing out some possibilities that may be an underlying factor in all of this!

    Anyone that would walk off their FOB over there unarmed looking for the taliban has got to have some kind of mental disorder if you ask me!
    "Now two flags fly above my land that really sum up how I fee. One is the colors that fly high and proud The red, the white, the blue. The other one's got a rattlesnake With a simple statement made "Don't tread on me" is what it says and I'll take that to my grave. Because this is me. I'm proud to be American and strong in my beliefs. And I've said it before but I'll say it again 'Cause my family's always fought and died to save this land. And a country boy is all I'll ever be."
