Subject: Jack Idema Film Trailer Just Released

You can now see the new film trailer about Jack Idema and the innocent men that were unustly and illegally imprisoned in Afghanistan by Hamid Karzai, an American traitor (he is a US Citizen) who continues to release terrorists daily so they can kill Americans again, and who do kill Americans. Karzai directly ordered the torture of Americans in his Saderat Interrogation facility, they were beaten, electrocuted, and doused with boiling tea. All to cover up a plot to kill his presidential race opponent. Congress will most likely be demanding Karzai resigns when this film comes out.

Idema has blundered his way into trouble for a long time, and has fancied himself as a modern-day mercenary, fighting the "good fight". I saw that clip some months ago, and I imagine he is still delusional today.

From Wired's Danger Room Blog: Convicted Torturer, Vigilante in Mexican Stand-Off (http://www.wired.com/dangerroom/2010/08/convicted-torturer-vigilante-idema-in-mexican-stand-off/)

The world’s most notorious pseudo commando and self-appointed terrorist interrogator has resurfaced in Mexico, where he’s locked in a standoff with police in the state of Quintana Roo.

According to local press reports, Idema is holed up in his home in the town of Bacalar. Police officers are outside, waiting to question him after a visitor to the house accused Idema of “rape and deprivation of personal liberty.” Exactly how Idema got to Mexico, or what he was doing there, wasn’t immediately clear from the media accounts.
How did this oxygen thief get out of Afghanistan, let alone reenter the Western Hemisphere?

In Mexico, schemer goes by 'Black Jack' (http://www.newsobserver.com/2010/09/07/668291/in-mexico-schemer-goes-by-black.html), by Jay Price. The News & Observer, 7 September 2010.

Author Robert Young Pelton, who wrote a chapter about Idema in his book "Licensed to Kill: Hired Guns in the War on Terror," said Idema gave himself the new nickname Black Jack when he swapped one fantasy for another with the move from Afghanistan to Mexico. He has grown his hair and beard long, raised a pirate flag over the house and begun renting out boats, using images from "Pirates of the Caribbean" in his advertising.
