Good News for Adams

SZ at World O’Crap draws attention to the latest gem from conservative demagogue (see my blog post here) and academic Mike S Adams, in which he ponders what might have been:

Just how many Muslim terrorists could I kill if the military would ignore my age and let me serve as a sniper?

According to Adams’s profile, he was born on 30 October 1964. And according to this report, there’s some good news:

Older soldiers…are showing up more often at Army training bases across the country since Congress gave the service approval earlier this year to raise its enlistee age limit, which had been 35, to just under 42 years.

Gosh, Adams, you just might make the deadline…
