I think it's more important to first focus on the real core of the issue: did he commit a parajika?
If he did, he is no longer a monk, even though he wears the robes. If he didn't, calling him the burmese Bin Laden is an absurd exageration.
I don't usualy follow the conflict, so can someone clarify if he did commit a parajika?
He turns his mind away from those phenomena, and having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.'
