America[/url] France Says Marksman Missing in North America, Fueling Speculation Over Link to Sniper Killings France has alerted Interpol about a French army deserter who is known as a marksman and is missing in North America. A Defense Ministry spokesman said there was speculation of a link to the investigation into the Washington-area sniper. The 25-year-old second lieutenant, who was not identified, did not return to class in September at the elite military school, Saint-Cyr Coetquidan in Brittany, in western France, after going on vacation in August, officials said. . . . Bureau acknowledged there was some speculation of a connection with the sniper investigation, but he said that was just hypothetical at this point. "We have no certitude of a link," he said in a telephone interview. However, he said, "This soldier has a very, very good reputation as a marksman." . . . The deserter was given permission for an August trip to the United States and Canada, said Bureau. Police sources said he had planned a trip to Chicago. RTL radio reported the deserter was of Yugoslav origin, but Bureau could not confirm that, saying that he had to be a French citizen to attend the military school.

He may be a good shot, but deserting from the French military shows a high degree of mental competence in my book; someone who cares about his future and well-being. Someone like that is not the type who'd throw his life away blasting civilians, or serving the French.

The white mini van that was impounded this morning had a french flag sticker in the rear window. Tom

Couldn't be him. None of the victims were killed with high velocity white flags.

I'm glad to see that the tinfoil-hat army have found a way to turn even the possiblity of this being a Frog back into this being arab/muslims.

Isn't Muslim Croat a oxymoron? Arent you either a Roman Catholic Croat, Russian Orthodox Serb or a Bosnian or Albainan Muslim? If I am not mistaken they hate each other so much you cant BE of mixed background?
