The officer said Corporal Hassoun, a 24-year-old Marine linguist who was born in Lebanon, was shaken up after he saw one of his sergeants blown apart by a mortar shell. "It was very disturbing to him," the officer said. "He wanted to go home and quit the game but since he was relatively early in his deployment, that was not going to happen anytime soon. So he talked to some folks on base he befriended, because they were all fellow Muslims, and they helped sneak him off. Once off, instead of helping him get home, they turned him over to the bad guys."
About two months ago, he told a cousin that several American deserters had escaped by bribing Iraqis to help get them out of the country.

The man is in need of support no matter what the reasons for his capture.
There is a difference between desertion and becoming a traitor.
Beheading is something I dont wish on anyone, and even if he is a yellow bastard who ran off and got sold out he still deserves something better than a rusty knife to the trachea.

No one considers the angle that he's simply captured, a beheading ( possibly a much more gruesome one for a Muslim fighting on the side of the infidels) is likely based on recent events, and the propaganda machine attached at the hip to our current government puts "softners" on the newswire? In order to draw attention away that the clusterf**k is spiraling faster than the propanda can keep up?
Are people going to care as much if a "yellow belly deserter" is minus his hat rest?
