james yee elected as an obama delegate

Remember James Yee? He's the former United States Army chaplain who was appointed to minister to Muslim detainees at Guantanamo Bay, then later wrongly accused by the government of spying in 2003. He was charged with sedition, aiding the enemy, spying, espionage, and failure to obey a general order. After basically dragging his name through the mud, the government later dropped all charges, and he was honorably discharged from the U.S. military.

It was an awful ordeal, but now James Yee is serving his country in another way... last weekend Yee was elected as an Obama delegate in Washington's 9th Congressional District to the National Democratic Convention to be held in Denver: James Yee, Democratic National Convention delegate. He apparently might even get an opportunity to speak at the National Convention. Very cool.
