There's an Army Ranger camp here on Eglin AFB. We see Rangers around all the time. This guy doesn't look like any Ranger I've ever seen............He looks more like a homeless person (aka bum) from under a bridge........

Who is it?

This guy is someone trying to make a name for himself by playing on a bunch of half-a$$ed "reporting", war jitters, and uncertainty.

There's one in every crowd. Next.

Hundreds of thousands have served in Iraq. Ain't hard to find one who has a story to tell that matches what you want to hear.

Also not unknown for guys with these kinds of stories to have never been anywhere near the fighting.

Yep, we are there to KILL CIVILIANS. Doesn't everyone know that that is what we are there for? Jeez. What a bunch of crap.

BTW, why does this guy still wear a BDU blouse? I mean, after all of the supposed crimes against humanity, he still wants to wear part of his uniform? Didn't Kerry's old antiwar group used to do the same thing?

It really isn't important to me what this guy says. I loathe people like this. I despise John Kerry more every day for his lies about soldiers in nam. War is hell and I think those who exploit it for personal/political purposes should be imprisoned for life.

Probably figures that, since his argument stinks, his BDUs give him legitimacy.

Kinda like Kerry.

Put a diaper on his head and he'd look just like the enemy. In fact, he probably is the enemy.

I too, am quite willing to accept that his story is a fake. But I still do not see where it has been plainly proven wrong. Where plainly proven wrong => Prosecution is underway, given the preponderance of evidence, and it is clear that this boy is will quickly be tried by jury and hanging from a tree for treason.

BLACKFIVE website has this to say of the fake soldiers uniform:
"For starters, this guy's demeanor is all wrong. But look at the uniform. Wrong beret flash, no unit insignia, and the sleeves are rolled up incorrectly (sorry Marines)."

You are correct...

From a 3rd Ranger Battalion member at the DUmp:

"The date he gives for being with 3rd Battalion in Falujah is the date that 3rd Ranger Battalion was back in Ft. Benning getting awarded a campaign streamer for their Battalion Guidon."

So the 3rd Ranger Battalion left him over there, all by himself, to their fighting alone? That must be how he got all those nifty neato awards.

In the 2nd video, he talks about us killing thousands (or did he say hundreds of thousands?) of innocent civilians, and burying them in mass graves. The last thing he says on that video is "It's like mass genocide, on us." This alleged genocide is on the Iraqis, who he refers to as "us." I'm not sure, but I think these are the best terrorist videos I've ever seen.

This spindly little lowlife claims to be a special forces Ranger?

The demeanor is wrong. The hair is wrong. The picture on the wall is wrong. His sleaves are rolled up wrong. He has no insignia.

He looks about as "Ranger" as one of those guys in a P Diddy video.

I do not mind you folks picking on his sleeves, his general un-ranger-like-ness, or even his P Diddy-ness :-)

What I mind is the fact that, given this is a forgery, he and the folks who shot this video are not hanging from some trees in CA as a public example to any and all who continue to play games like this.

That guy sounds like a crackhead. Beyond that, I don't think there were many Rangers in that region. Mainly they were and have been Marines.

Also, he was out of uniform in that picture. The beige/brown beret doesn't get worn with the green BDUs (the black beret OR green/red berets do), but the Desert Camo BDUs instead. He also had his sleeves rolled up and it was visible in the picture.

Something doesn't equate.

he isn't well-spoken enough to pull that off, but he could EASILY make some money off of this..

assuming he doesn't get too big time with it.

If it attracts the attention of the national media, SOMEONE will eventually report it and then it WILL BE blown apart in a very public fashion.

Jim,

I am NOT a big Bill O'Rielly/investigative reporting fan, but if anything deserves that kind of attention, THIS is it.

Does anyone have any contacts to someone like O'Rielly or Rush or something? Might be a good thing to do as it does appear that this guy is gaining a bit of an audience on the internet.

He is completely and totally WRONG in every thing he says.

BDUs went out for Rangers before the Iraq invasion, Says he went to Osan to get reinforcements: Osan is an Air Force Base. He said they went in to Kuwait to be debriefed and they were to strike fear in the Iraqis: you're debriefed after an action not before. I couldn't stand any more and had to leave it. He's a three dollar bill in my book until he produces a validated/complete 201 file and a DD-214

Very relevant point, thanks for posting. Also, I pass on this snippet from a poster at LF:

This guy is a hoax. I saw this video on a military site and they're dissecting this Jesse Macbeth like a frog on a 10 th grade biology lab table. For example, his record has changed from owning a purple heart and other awards and service badges to owning none at all. The people who rely on this video are going to be embarrassed if they keep pointing to it.

I think if you check Pima County Superior Court records in Arizona you'll find that Brother Jesse used to be Jesse Adam Al-Zaid.

My favorite quote by Brother Jesse on SocialistAlternative.org.

When I was growing up, everyone thought I'd be a criminal, but they were wrong. I'm gonna be one of the leaders of the revolution.

Army Ranger my ass.
