Skip to comments.Another Fake Soldier Tale Debunked
Posted on 05/24/2006 9:14:55 AM PDT by listenhillary
Meet "Jessie MacBeth." He's the latest cause celebre of the anti-war Left -- a "former Army Ranger and Iraq war veteran" who accuses his fellow troops of committing a litany of atrocities against innocent civilians. Anti-Vietnam War veteran John Kerry and the Winter Soldiers cast a long shadow.
In his 20-minute Internet video interview at peacefilms.org, which promises that watching the video "will change your life," MacBeth (who also claims to have served in Special Forces) says:
--Superiors told him "our job over there is to strike fear in the hearts of the Iraqis . . . to be brutal and to not feel" and that "the Geneva Convention doesn't mean crap."
-- He would "do night raids, pull people out, on their knees and zip-tied," and if a man didn't answer the way he wanted him to, he "would shoot his youngest kid and keep going."
-- "By my hand alone . . . almost 200 people were taken out by me.

KERRY: "...razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Jessie MacBeth..."
Finally! The TRUTH BE KNOWN! (it always was)............
IMHO, this outright treason. I hope this clown and those invloved go down hard for this...
It is both revealing and sad that there are so many insane people on the left. They mean well, but...
This is tried at least once a year. Insanity prevents the perpetrators from realizing that it never worked before and is never likely to ever work... not in 2006, certainly.
Of course, if it is done entirely to massage their private circle j*** and to create urban legends that will live forever going from insane mind to insane mind...
I guess it serves some purpose, twisted though it may be.
Were these experiences "seared into his memory"?
I say try him on war crimes (based on his testimony) and throw him in jail. He can try to prove his innocence.
The lier should be forced to tell the truth.
Sure, he'll get his....right after John Kerry does.
I agree with you so much I can't stand it. Admit you're a liar or go to prison for war crimes. What a POS.
Anyone got the G.I. Joe pic?
Amazing that in this information age people think horse*%^$ like this will last undetected for more than an hour.
MURTHA: "But it's the seriousness of the charges that matter..."
Good job, Michelle Malkin. The anti-war left's eagerness to lap this stuff up is a commentary on both their reflexive anti-Americanism and how few of them know anything at all about the military--this guys's claptrap is so obvious, anybody who's ever served would have raised the BS flag.
Quality control is at an all-time low over at DUmmieland. And that's saying something.
Would you say the same if you were, say, being accused of child molestation or something smiliarly henious, Rep. Murtha???
I really did LOL.
Regarding Jesse Macbeth and those like him, don't you love how the frauds are always Rangers or SEALs or Green Berets. No one ever says. I worked in the motorpool washing Humvees.
