Movie creator charged

By Jake Palmateer

ONEONTA _ An Oneonta man who helped produce a 9/11 conspiracy documentary that became an Internet hit was arrested Monday for allegedly deserting the Army.

Korey Rowe, 24, a veteran of Afghanistan and Iraq, was picked up by deputies at about 10:45 p.m. Monday, Otsego County Sheriff Richard Devlin Jr. said.

Rowe, along with Dylan Avery and Jason Bermas, are members of Louder Than Words, a production company that is working on a third edition of the movie "Loose Change," which contends the U.S. government was involved in the 9/11 terrorist attacks. That edition is intended to be a theatrical release.

Rowe and the other members of Louder Than Words have appeared on radio shows including The Alex Jones Show and have been mentioned in Time magazine. Vanity Fair magazine published a feature story on the group last August.

Since 2002, Rowe was interviewed by The Daily Star several times about "Loose Change" and his experiences in the military.

"We developed information that he was at a county Route 47 residence in Oneonta last night," Devlin said Tuesday.

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.

Rowe previously told The Daily Star he enlisted in August 2001. He left the Army in June 2005, according to the Louder Than Words website.

He is being held without bail in the Otsego County jail and is waiting to be picked up by U.S. Army officials, Devlin said.

The Associated Press reported last month that deserters are rarely court-martialed by the Army.

Although 3,301 soldiers deserted in the 2006 fiscal year, there were just 174 troops court-martialed.

The AP report said some deserters are returned to their units, while others are discharged in non-criminal proceedings.

Desertion rates have been rising since 2004, but the Army does little to seek out deserters and instead relies on a database that can be cross-checked by local law-enforcement agencies during encounters such as traffic stops, the report states.

The Department of Defense public-affairs office did not immediately return a call for comment Tuesday.

A woman who answered Rowe’s cell phone Tuesday and identified herself only as Kristy said Rowe was "taken" from a house Monday night.

The Louder Than Words website lists a Kristy Kissner as an administrative assistant for the group.

"All we know is that he has been arrested," the woman said. "We know nothing. We just hope that whatever happened comes out."

Rowe’s parents did not immediately return a message left Tuesday.

In media interviews, Rowe has criticized the Iraq war and the Bush administration.

Desertion is defined under Article 85 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice as being when a soldier leaves his or her unit or place of duty with the intent to remain away from there permanently or quits his or her unit with the intent to avoid hazardous duty. It is considered a felony.

Korey should come up to

Korey should come up to Canada... we'll take good care of him in Vancouver

For how long?

The North American Union is just around the corner. Michael Ruppert used to publish a list of countries that were safe for military deserters and draft avoidees, and unfortunately Canada is no longer like it was in the 60s and 70s during Viet Nam. There really aren't many options left.

Given what Alex Jones has in his article, and given my own suspicions as a truther, this sounds like a case of government harassment and intimidation. Disgusting as usual, but not surprising.

Show "I read all of the articles and followed" by NJcpaTOM

No, it's more like Corey Rowe realized that the Bush regime is

brazenly subverting our U.S. Constituion, that 9/11 was and inside job, and that he was not going to fight against innocent men, women, & children based on Bush's boldfaced lies!!!

I was simply searching and questioning

about how and if he was discharged.
Now that it has come out the he was Honorably Discharged, I'm sorry I wasted my time posting that question.

When the war is illegal,

When the war is illegal, leaving it should not be.

I agree, leaving an illegal war should not be illegal.

But the fact that the war is illegal is no excuse to run away and hide from them rather than challenge the illegal war in the open.

I'm Shocked But Not Surprised

A legitimate question is voted down. If we can't even ask ourselves how things came into being, how can we go ahead and ask other what they are doing! I agree with the above poster. No one is beyond reproach. The minute they are, we've lost. I also want to applaud this above poster for taking a stand, no matter how unpopular it is.

THANK YOU for your support.

You must be a real truther.
It's kind of hard finding support here in NJ.
Most people, especially my wife, don't even want to hear about it.
To close to the WTC to step back and see the overall picture.

I was to busy involved in litigation with a large national bank who was committing fraud before and after 9/11. After they "settled the case" in November of 2005, a friend of mine suggested that I watch "911: In Plane Site". I've been searching ever since.

Thanks Again for your post.

"Alex Jones set him up"...

I'm sure that's high on AJ's list of priorities. Very uncool response to a sad situation. Cash any CIA checks lately dude?

What? Huh? Are you for real?

What are you talking about??? You think Alex set it up? Are you serious? A.J is one of the few individuals who has revealed to the people quotes like the one you're using at the end of your comment. If you think Alex is on the wrong side of things, you need to rexamine the situation. He is a truth teller and a patriot...

Not me!!!

I didn't say that. Check out the parent comment. - the one with like a -10 rating. Unbelievable!

Me, I like Alex Jones - a lot. I'm not so with his anti-global warming stance but I don't agree with anyone 100% about anything. I learned about 9/11 via Mr. Alex Jones, so he's A-OK in my book.

good to hear

Ahhh man. Sigh of relief. I didnt see that other comment, nor did i catch the sarcasim.

Peace =)

What type of 911truthmachine are you ...

that can't even post a simple reply to an honest question?

Let's face it, Alex Jones is good, but at times he goes a little overboard. I listen to his program at work and there are times that I just have to turn the volume down.

I have ordered DVDs from a great many websites looking for 911 Truth including Alex Jones prison planet.

Alex Jones' store is the only one that gave me a hassle when I tried to contact him about when I would receive the DVDs that were charged to my credit card. It wasn't until I called the credit card company that someone contacted me.

I am offended that you would make snap judgements about my character without knowing more about me.
Are you trying to chase me out of finding the truth ?
You have enough supporters to find it on your own ?
Maybe you are the CIA agent who is hiding under a false name.

criminal war

Actually, it is the United States that violated international law by invading Iraq (and also Afghanistan as we now realize). That is the higher law.

My wish is that all would leave the military and all SHOULD leave the military if required to follow an illegal order - which includes fighting in support of the 'supreme international war crime'.

And we, as citizens, are guilty of the same war crime if we support these wars of aggression for energy resources.


If he didn't get a proper discharge what was he expecting? A picnic? Anyone protesting the gov so publicly should have been more self protective. Of course the arrest is awful but also predictable.


'Terrorism has to be dealt with': Soldier recounts service

"The military is probably the best thing I have ever done for myself," he said. He said being in Afghanistan has led to a greater understanding of the United States' mission there.

Goodbye Final Cut?

Chalk it up as "Blocking Property of Certain Persons Who Threaten Stabilization Efforts in Iraq” Executive Order, Louder Than Words property and assets become property of the Treasury Department? I am not an optimist :(
