US Army vet charged with fighting with al-Qaida

• AP
A U.S. Army veteran, who boasted on Facebook of his military adventures with Syrian rebels, was charged Thursday with firing rocket propelled grenades as part of an attack led by an al-Qaida group against the government of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Eric Harroun, 30, of Phoenix, was charged in U.S. District Court in Alexandria with conspiring to use a weapon of mass destruction — specifically, a rocket propelled grenade launcher — outside the U.S.

Hey, if a "rocket propelled grenade-launcher" is a "weapon of mass destruction", then Bush was telling the truth when he ordered the invasion of Iraq!  Hussein's army certainly had plenty of rocket propelled grenade-launchers lying around.  Did the prosecutor think of that?
