Loose Change producer and Iraq and Afghanistan veteran Korey Rowe has
been arrested and handed over to military officials without bail for
allegedly "deserting the Army".

According to a report in the New York Daily Star, Rowe was arrested on
Monday night at a county Route 47 residence in Oneonta.

Rowe was arrested on a "military warrant" that Devlin said was brought
to the attention of deputies by the Oneonta Police Department, who
received information from a source outside of that department.

Rowe was living at the Route 47 home, Devlin said.

City police officials who were able to comment on the case were
unavailable Tuesday night.

After deputies received the information from Oneonta police, they
reached out to the Army, and officials from Fort Knox faxed a copy of
the warrant, deputies said.

Arrests and court martials for deserters are incredibly rare and this
appears to be an obvious case of political persecution as the Loose
Change crew prepare the cinematic release of the final version of
their popular documentary.

According to MSNBC, "Despite a rise in desertions from the Army as the
Iraq war drags on into a fifth year, the U.S. military does almost
nothing to find those who flee and rarely prosecutes those it gets its
hands on."

The Army court-martialed just 5% of deserters last year, with that
number dropping to just 1 per cent or less for the Navy and the Marines.

Rowe enlisted in the Army in August 2001 and left in June 2005. He has
been out of the Army for over two years. He was previously arrested
under similar circumstances but was immediately released.

Alex Jones interviewed Rowe at a conference in Chicago last year
(watch above), during which he exposed how CNN and the military would
stage photo-ops to make it appear as if Al-Qaeda members were being
killed in Afghanistan, along with a host of other cover-ups and
atrocities.

This will inevitably backfire on the authorities, but only if we put
intense pressure on them to release Korey. Relevent phone numbers to

Rowe and demand his release.
