You said you get a lot of support e-mail. Do you get hate mail?
Yes. Though that seems to be going to the war resisters themselves, to their Web sites. Jeremy, of course, who just had his hearing and has been getting a lot of publicity, has been getting a large number of hate mail from people, including threats.
Did you attend his hearing last week?
Yes. The most interesting parts were when Jeremy was questioned. And then there was a witness he brought, former Marine Staff Sergeant Jimmy Massey, who spoke about the war crimes that he witnessed in Iraq. And he spoke passionately. It was quite a harrowing tale he had to tell.
Have you ever regretted your decision to go to Canada?
Not for a moment. It was the smartest thing I ever did. And when I visit the States — I go down there to visit my mom — every time, I can see that the United States has basically gone sour. It’s noticeable. It makes me very sad and angry, and glad when I see the Canadian flag again, when I come across the border.
