  •  I can't help liking him either (of what I know (6+ / 0-)

    about him).

    That quote toward the end of the article is so very insightful for someone his age. He obviously is a deep thinker. No way I could go there at his age, if even I could now decades older than he is.

    Thanks to the Obama administration (rescue), he now will have the opportunity to grow into himself. And/or, find that many of his peers as he ages become more thoughtful, introspective, and self aware. I'm not surprised he seems to have felt so alone there, even amongst the other soldiers.

    My impulse is to protect him and I feel it strongly. That is interesting as I don't normally respond this way. The premature, rabid condemnation has me very angry. Some people just have to 'decide" (ie close their minds, ie judge a situation/person), they are more comfortable. I am happy to leave it open and wait to see who he is and what happened.
