A former U.S. Army soldier faces life in prison, charged with using a weapon of mass destruction. But supporters say he's being railroaded.
FOX News Radio's Rich Johnson reports he will appear before a judge today:
30-year-old Phoenix native Eric Harroun joined a rebel group in Syria earlier this year.
(E. Harroun) "Bashar Assad, this is what's left of your Air Force!"
Harroun took video of himself going after a downed Syrian helicopter. But while he fought against the Syrian government - which the U.S. opposes - Harroun apparently fought with a rebel group that the U.S. says is affiliated with al-Qaeda.
(D. Harroun) "Absolutely not. He would never do that."
...Harroun's father, Darryl, defending his son. Eric Harroun's also accused of firing a rocket-propelled grenade while in Syria. That, according to U.S. law, is illegal, regardless of where it happens.
