The lies the liberal left has clung to over the attrocities that have occured in Iraq keep growing. People reporting or telling stories of the battlefield, who were not on the battlefield have run rampant. Like the Baghdad Diarist, fictional accounts making our soldiers look bad and creating fuel for the enemey, Jesse McBeth, is found guilty of faking war records. This conviction misses the most important thing, how many soldiers died because of his lies.
His sentence is a mere 5 months. Now the important thing to remember, is not only did McBeth not serve in Iraq, he was kicked out of Boot Camp after only 40 days, for being UNFIT.
Now how about a trial for all those that have reported this as being true. The media, just as with the Baghdad Diarist, did not conduct due diligence in their reporting efforts. They have slandered American Soldiers and used the media to find them guilty. They have helped recruite more terrorists, by providing the ammunition to attack the US Military.
How about people like Murtha who cried at the top of his lungs, that our boys are the evil murding bastards of the world.
How about the rest of Congress who stood by and let this happen.
There should be more trials and investigations into how these stories became Fact. The anti-war liberals have used every trick in the book to dupe the American Public, in order to gain support and pressure the Bush into withdrawing from Iraq.
These are the true terrorists. They are terrorizing the American People into complacency. They are stripping our military of their ability to act as it should during a war. They are supporting the enemy. Last I knew that was called Treason.
Five Months for POS Jesse Adam Macbeth
Un. Freaking. Believable.
Jesse Adam Macbeth, told lies that may have caused the deaths of many Americans serving in overseas.
Via The Blotter: A Washington man, whose claims to have slaughtered civilians as a U.S. Army Ranger in Iraq were seen by millions on YouTube, admitted in federal court in Seattle today that he was a fake and a liar.Jesse Adam Macbeth, 23, pleaded guilty to charges he faked his war record.
“He was in the Army for 40 days before he was kicked out of boot camp for being unfit,” said U.S. Attorney Jeffrey C. Sullivan. “He was never in Iraq.”
Not only that but, he became a propaganda tool for the Enemy.
Macbeth’s story of killing men and women as they left a Baghdad mosque included claims that he was a U.S. Army Ranger and had received the Purple Heart for injuries suffered in combat in Iraq.His interview was translated into Arabic and distributed in the Middle East, said the U.S. attorney.
“Macbeth’s lies fueled hostility to our servicemen in Iraq and here at home,” Sullivan said.
But he now says he’s, “Sorry!”
The judge must believe this POS now, because he only gave him five months in prison.
Macbeth, the phony U.S. soldier who claimed to have committed atrocities, was sentenced to five months in jail.
