By the way, he also will receive $300000 in back pay while incarcerated by the Taliban.
He should have been in prison for desertion and treason.

Had I sat through the trial, heard the evidence and understood both that and the law I might have an opinion. As it is...well, I just don't.

He should very well have been executed.
