He told an Associated Press reporter that an Army investigator asked him if he had ever participated in community theater. An Army public affairs chief today told me he doubted any such thing had happened.
Copas told me he sticks by his story. "It was part of their investigation. That was one of their questions," he said. But the question didn't come completely out of the blue.
"The informant, whoever he was, had a conversation with me on an internet chat room, and I mentioned involvement in community theater -- I had rehearsal, or something," Copas explained.
So did the investigator ask the question in order to identify you as the person with whom this anonymous informant had chatted? Or because community theater involvement was evidence of homosexual tendencies?
