Jack Idema, accused of torturing Afghans, pops up in Mexico

Jonathan Keith "Jack" Idema went to prison in the 1990s on 58 counts of wire fraud and conspiracy. Then he reinvented himself in Afghanistan as a sunglasses-wearing, AK-47-toting counterterrorism expert who eventually was charged with running a private jail where he tortured innocent Afghans. Now he's surfaced in Mexico.
