Folks are no longer searching for Bobby Fischer, as the chess guru has been detained in Japan for extradition to the United States, pursuant to violations of UN sanctions in the early 90s related to his playing chess in Yugoslavia against his old Cold War rival, Boris Spassky.

Since “officially” retiring from chess in 1996 (to develop his own chess-derivative - “Fischerandom”), Fischer has popped up from time to time on international radio, offering some… interesting viewpoints:

I applaud [the 9/11 attacks]. Look, nobody gets that the U.S. and Israel have been slaughtering the Palestinians for years. Robbing and slaughtering for years and nobody gave a shit. Fuck the U.S. I wanna see the U.S. wiped out.

Nobody has single-handedly done more for the U.S. than me. I really believe in this. When I won the World Championship in 1972, the United States had an image of, you know, a football country, a baseball country, but nobody thought of it as an intellectual country. I turned all that around single-handedly.

I’m hoping for the Seven Days in May scenario, where sane people will take over the U.S., military people. They will imprison the Jews, they will execute several hundred thousand of them at least.

Death to the U.S. They are the worst liars and bastards. This is a wonderful day.

It should be noted that Fischer’s mother was Jewish.
