Report: “Loose Change” producer back with his unit, headin’ out to Iraq

posted at 11:50 am on July 31, 2007 by Allahpundit

Well, no. The unit’s heading out but, like SLC says, one way or another I suspect he won’t be going with them.

Here’s the background in case you missed part one — or, as the Loosers prefer, the “first edition” — of this story last week.

Oneonta film producer Korey Rowe has been returned to his unit, which is gearing up for its third deployment to Iraq since Operation Iraqi Freedom began in March 2003…

“According to our files, he is still on active duty,” said Cathy Gramling, a media relations specialist for Fort Campbell, Ky., home of the 101st…

A source close to Rowe’s family has said he was at the end of his active-duty enlistment in the summer of 2005 and was trying to avoid serving a second tour of duty in Iraq under the Army’s stop-loss policy when he went AWOL. He returned to Fort Campbell that summer to clear up the matter but left for good after he was told he would be sent to Iraq, the source said.

Still no word on punishment, if any, but this is going to make for a hot segment in “Loose Change: Ninth Edition” or whatever in which the boys use Cathy Gramling’s payroll records to try to track her movements on the day the Towers fell.

I know Cathy Gramling… hard to believe she was involved in 9-11… it’s a damn shame.

I doubt very much whether they would send him along with his unit. Nobody would trust him. Nobody would rely upon him to do his job. And nobody would watch HIS back, either.

The best thing for him is prison. One can only hope the punishment includes 10 or more years followed by a dishonerable discharge.

In 50 years, we’ll have conspiracy theories about Rowe and how he was forced to go to combat so the gubment could hide all the troof that he knows.

I’m callin’ it now.

Somebody needs to make a movie of this tool in Iraq proving what a hero he is…Except I have a sneaking suspicion even most truthers dont consider curling up on the ground in fetal position very heroic.

I would have no problem if he was sent to iraq and opppppps caught a round or two .
I’m also good with prison time , just no protective custody let him hang in the general population , I’m more then sure he will make a few friends and he will only cost them a few top Ramans and 2 honey buns.

I don’t know. Shipping him back out on permanent latrine duty might work. He’s certainly shown he has a talent for shoveling excrement.

I believe Rowe’s callsign should be “Loose Screws”

Oh no. I insist that he goes to Iraq. Let our honorable soldiers deal with him. His punishment will be decided by a group of his peers. Iraq has a way of weeding out people like him from the gene pool.

Mojack, if Allah notices your comment, he’s gonna bark at you. And he’s going to be right.

Yup, let his peers see if they can show this young man the light.

doriangrey on July 31, 2007 at 12:14 PM

It’s called the ‘Honey Pot’…….great ‘extra-duty’ for this fella to help out his buddies in Iraq.

Limerick on July 31, 2007 at 12:20 PM

Agreed PattyAnn.

Bad Candy on July 31, 2007 at 12:27 PM

and 2 honey buns.

Huh…I thought that was what they’d be trading for.

I want him to be clearing mine fields while wearing tap shoes by the end of the week.

And it came to pass in the morning, that David President Bush wrote a letter to Joab the Commander of the 101st, and sent it by the hand of Uriah Rowe.

And he wrote in the letter, saying, Set ye Uriah Rowe in the forefront of the hottest battle, and retire ye from him, that he may be smitten, and die.

And it came to pass, when Joab the Commander of the 101st observed the city, that he assigned Uriah Rowe unto a place where he knew that valiant men were.

And the men of the city went out, and fought with Joab the 101st: and there fell some of the people of the servants of David President Bush; and Uriah the Hittite Rowe the Truther died also.

I’m quite certain that this is how Rowe and his ilk will see matters if he is returned to active duty. However, georgej is correct, he will never be relied upon by anyone in uniform, and will never be put in a position that requires the smallest amount of trust in either direction.
