Adam Kokesh, a former Marine and an Iraq veteran, is no angel by any account. He's an antiwar demonstrator who has been seen in uniform, stripped of military identifiers, at Washington protests, and this turns the stomach of many a soldier. Warned by an e-mail message not to do this, Mr. Kokesh cursed at an officer. This follows by a few years a demotion from the rank of sergeant to corporal for bringing an unauthorized pistol back from his first Iraq tour. The Marine Corps downgraded Mr. Kokesh's honorable discharge as punishment for this latest episode, to make an example of a troublemaker.
"This has been a very successful period of activism, this particular gun rights activism. I have to admit it was a little naive of me not foresee the exact consequences," Kokesh said. "It was a little more costly than I expected but it was very effective. It reached millions of people."
