Daredevil or Batman, This Guy Is Not

It seems the Afghan police don't know what a real American soldier looks like, since this guy was able to operate there as a soldier with no real ties to any government for over two years. Maybe we should have put more toops on the ground in Afghanistan. You know, just a thought.

As the article mentions, people in this area are naturally suspicious of Americans in general and this is going to play perfectly into their fears. Commentators like to point out how silling their suspicions are all the time and how we're the good guys, but stuff like this and Abu Gharaib are what they see of "the good guys".
