Korey Rowe Arrest Story - Foxnews.com front page!

The story is the number two headline on Foxnews.com, right below Nifong's apology for his prosecution of the Duke players. The headline for the story is: "Army: 9/11 Filmmaker's a Deserter".

I would like to point out that Fox News doesn't even know proper English grammar. "Filmmaker's" is not a contraction for "Filmmaker Is".


Producer of 9/11 Conspiracy Film 'Loose Change' Arrested for Deserting the Army

Thursday, July 26, 2007

One of the young filmmakers behind a controversial 9/11 conspiracy documentary was arrested this week on charges that he deserted the Army, even though he claims he received an honorable discharge.

Korey Rowe, 24, who served with the 101st Airborne in Afghanistan and Iraq, told FOXNews.com that he was honorably discharged from the military 18 months ago — which he said he explained to sheriffs when they pounded on his door late Monday night.

“When they came to my house, I showed them my paperwork,” Rowe said. “The cops said, 'You’re still in the system.'”

Rowe is one of the producers of "Loose Change," a cult hit on the Internet espousing the theory that the U.S. government and specifically the Bush administration orchestrated the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

The movie is set to be released in about 40 British theaters in late August, according to Rowe and fellow filmmakers Jason Bermas and Dylan Avery.

Police arrested Rowe at his house in Oneonta, N.Y., about 10:45 p.m. on Monday and took him to the Otsego County jail, where he spent a day-and-a-half before he was released, he said.

Rowe was turned over to officials at Fort Drum — the closest military base — who then booked him on a flight to Fort Campbell, Ky., where his unit is based, to try to straighten out why the military issued a warrant for his arrest.

“A warrant for my arrest came down and showed up on the sheriff’s desk,” Rowe said. “Where it came from and why it showed up all of a sudden is a mystery to me.”

A spokeswoman for the 101st Airborne said Rowe is in the system as an Army deserter.

“He was listed as a deserter in 2005,” said Lt. Col. Rumi Nielson-Green, public affairs officer for the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault). “What we show is that he was absent without leave in June of 2005 and was dropped from the rolls in July 2005. … He has been apprehended for being a deserter.”

Rowe said he believes it’s an administrative error on the part of the military. Nielson-Green conceded that could be the case, but said it was all speculation at this point.

“Anything is possible,” she said. “If this is an administrative error, then that will come out in due process. … It may be as simple as that, or it may be more complicated than that. Errors sometimes happen.”

Rowe said he was sitting in his living room watching the show “Cops” and drinking a beer Monday night when police banged on the door.

“I thought it was the TV,” he said. “There was f-----g mad cops out there. I thought, here we go.”

There were at least five sheriffs on hand for his arrest, Rowe said. They told him he had an active-duty warrant from the military.

“They pulled a whole operation. They cut my phone lines. They came from the woods. It was crazy — it was ridiculous,” he said.

Otsego County Sheriff Richard Devlin said his understanding was that the arrest was much less dramatic and more routine than Rowe described, though he hadn't confirmed the details with the officers involved.

"Two deputies went to the house and arrested him," Devlin said. "There was no cutting of phone lines or anything like that. ... There’s nothing to indicate there were any issues. It was a standard arrest."

Rowe speculated that he might still be in the system because he didn’t update his address, and characterized the military’s record-keeping databases as ineffective and disorganized. He doesn’t, however, believe his work on “Loose Change” was a factor in his arrest.

“I don’t think there’s any nefarious purpose or political stunt, or that anybody’s trying to shut me up,” Rowe said. “At the same time, I can’t be sure about that.”

Asked whether Rowe’s arrest has anything to do with his involvement in “Loose Change,” Nielson-Green said “absolutely not.”

“We’ve never even heard of this guy,” she said, adding that she wasn’t aware of the movie until Rowe was arrested and reporters and bloggers picked up on the story.

“Loose Change” initially had a prominent American distributor behind it — Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban of 2929 Productions — but he has since backed out, apparently because of nervousness surrounding the film's inflammatory claims.

Actor Charlie Sheen had signed on to narrate the theatrical version of the film, but he recently said he's taking a wait-and-see approach to whether he’ll remain a part of the project.

"Loose Change" makes the shocking claim that the World Trade Center's Twin Towers were brought down on Sept. 11, 2001, by the U.S. government in a controlled demolition. It also contends that the military flew a missile into the Pentagon.


If he is a "deserter" then why was he released?
They are soooo aweful at reporting news. They are great at spewing hate and lies!

labeled a deserter so quickly?

FOX should have to apologize for this headline. So quick to come to their conclusions---and again, wrong!

Korey Honorable Discharge...


Truth action pressure -> paper verification -> release and offer to pay for transportation -> accountability?

Why is Fox so obsessed with Loose Change?

Like, I can think of nefarious reasons they might run with these stories about LC, but for the life of me I can't figure out the broader interest they show in LC. Every other week they have O'Reilly or somebody talking about 9/11 Truth. Sure, they heap scorn on LC, but they also manage to give it more press than any other mainstream network.

My guess is that LC2E is so full of errors and questionable ideas that bringing attention to it detracts from other 9/11 Truth activities and focuses instead on one that is easier to discredit. Notice how Fox never mentions any of the other films or filmmakers in 9/11 Truth. They have often entertained Fetzer, Reynolds and Barrett as guests. I've never seen Griffin or Jones on Fox.

That's not knocking LC2E for what it gets right; rather, it seems like attention from Fox can only be because of what LC2E gets wrong. Regardless, I remain somewhat puzzled by the continuous and prominent attention Fox gives LC.
