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.
They mean well? What are you smoking?
Ooops! Meant "heinous."
Note to self: use spell check!
I do believe it's a federal crime to impersonate a member of the military.
TITLE 18 PART I CHAPTER 33 § 702
Uniform of armed forces and Public Health Service
Whoever, in any place within the jurisdiction of the United States or in the Canal Zone, without authority, wears the uniform or a distinctive part thereof or anything similar to a distinctive part of the uniform of any of the armed forces of the United States, Public Health Service or any auxiliary of such, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than six months, or both.
TITLE 18 PART I CHAPTER 43 § 912.
Officer or employee of the United States
Whoever falsely assumes or pretends to be an officer or employee acting under the authority of the United States or any department, agency or officer thereof, and acts as such, or in such pretended character demands or obtains any money, paper, document, or thing of value, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.
So lock the SOB up.
As far as it being Treason, it would seem to give aid and comfort to the enemies of the United States.
Did I miss something here, or is this guy's blather what Murtha is using as a basis for HIS blather?
Sorry if I'm sounding stupid...did Murtha really pull a Dan Rather?
58. Recommend this thread if you believe DU should be reality-based.
Edited on Mon May-22-06 10:23 PM by Clarkie1 Are we a reality-based community or not? One of the threads supporting this imposter has 51 recommendations.
Recommend it for all the men and women who serve honorably in the United States armed forces. Yes, the U.S. military has committed atrocities, but lies like this only serve to undermine our own credibility, dishoner those who serve, and aid those who wish us harm.
The good name of DU is at stake. Where do you stand?
HA HA HA HA HA!!!!
And his address?
His name was legally changed from Jesse Adam Al-Zaid in 1986, when he was two years old.
Here's his MYspace.com page.
Have at it.
"Reality based community"...yeah...right...
That is a gem :)
According to a school paper article about his nearly fatal battle against some barristas at Arizona State, he said he flashed a military ID. That ID would, of course, be fake.
Still the "Jenjhis Kahn" mentality. Notice how similar the words of this "veteran" are to those of one John Forbes Kerry, who was reportedly a naval officer who served in Viet Nam.
The guy missed the charge of connecting telephone wires to the genitals of captured civilians and applying voltage through that means.
Over at DU they are blaming Rove for planting these kinds of stories...Hence we should send them this...
Is it okay now to question the patriotism of those whod lie about the behavior of our soldiers and commanders in order to undermine support for the war?

Your so full of sh*t dude, first of all your beret is not on right second of all your patches are not on right, third I have never met any ex spec ops or ranger who has made it through ranger training that skinny. If your CO knew you stttttudered he would have never let you have 11b status oppurtinity. Also you image was the worst photshopped image I have seen in a long time. j Rangers never deploy longer than a few months. Thay are strictly a DA force who seeks and destroys badass warriors and your put them to shame saying you speak for them. Another point 3 battalion is at ft benning not washington which is second battalion. But if I am way off for some random reason please enlieghten me to what is the standard rifle of the rangers what is the standard saw. Shoot you could probably tell me what type of body armor you use since it isnt the interceptor. Its obvious your a fake becuase you have no facts right have spec ops patches when you say your a ranger just curious as too how much peacefilms is paying you. Everybody I ran a check on the name and their is nobody under this name who served active OIF or OEF duty as a ranger or standard infantry in the u.s army.
more positive proof the Dummies over at DU are indeed, DUmmies.
Oh, yeah, I LOVE how they automatically blame every damned thing on Rove. If the guy were this all-seeing, do they think Bush's ratings would be lower than the speed limit in a school zone?
I hope someone archived the video that got pulled.
It would be helpful if some of his buds spoke up to contradict him...like the swift boat sailors.
THIS MacBeth also sounds like a genuine scumbag.
"As far as it being Treason, it would seem to give aid and comfort to the enemies of the United States."
Do you think US Federal prisons have enough room for the entire editorial staff of the NYT?
It doesn't really matter whether it gets debunked instantly. Just to leftist websites and see how they are still believing the Rather/60 Minutes documents and the "Downing Street Memo." Truth doesn't matter at all. Lefties AND the media still believe that John Kerry is a war hero. At that is really needed is that an over-the-top allegation make it to the media so it can get into Lexus and it can live forever.
I don't care who ya are...that there is funny.
