The Sun ^ | 1st May 2013 | JACK LOSH

Posted on 05/01/2013 4:53:58 AM PDT by the scotsman

'A man claiming to be a US war veteran who had lived in a remote Vietnamese village for 45 years has been exposed as a fraudster.

Dang Tan Ngoc, 76, said that he was Sgt John Hartley Robinson who was shot down over Laos in 1968, but a fingerprint test has exposed his lies.

After being interviewed over his past claims that he was a US soldier back in 2006, he also admitted to being a Vietnamese citizen.'

Read he is no longer able to speak English language. Perhaps they should try Russian. Viet Nam was a tropical paradise for 1960-70 era Russian “advisors”.

Robinson’s sister, after meeting him in person, is convinced it is him. I really don’t know if he is or isn’t, but I can’t wrap my mind around the kind of person who would carry a scam to that level of evil.

Why does your link say The Sun, when it takes me to http://www.thescottishsun.co.uk/scotsol/homepage/news/4908909/has-MIA-war-vet-been-found.html .

Is http://www.thescottishsun your blog? Why do I keep getting a warning about the cookies that site is trying to give me?

The sister WANTS this to be her brother so badly she is ignoring the facts.

The filmmakers, intent on shaming the US and shocking Americans (and incidentally making a whole bunch of money) ignored the facts too.

This guy has run this scam repeatedly and a previous USG investigation exposed him.

But his sister looked into his eyes and just KNEW IT.

I haven’t been following the story, but I wondered if that was the case. I also wondered why Robinson’s children initially agreed to DNA testing, then backed out. Did they initially believe it too?

As usual, we have to look to the foreign press to report these kinds of stories.

The Sun is the newspaper. Its online site has Scots and Irish pages, due to regional headlines and stories.

Why so hostile? The Sun is a British newspaper; the Scottish Sun is the version published in the north, focusing a bit more on news of interest to Scots. It’s not anybody’s blog; it’s a major print newspaper.

The Scotsman is a well-known Freeper. He’s on our team.

The quality of the content of The Scottish Sun is not at issue here. The other poster suggested that this was The Scotsman's personal blog, and I was pointing out that it is not; it's a publication with broad distribution.

Because it was causing problems for me, with what appeared to be a malicious attack. I apologize for jumping the gun.

One look at his face and you could tell that it wasn’t the US Soldier.

He had different ears, nose, eyes and mouth.

You are correct. Maj. Mark Smith took the family’s DNA, and; this SOB is a damn fraud. This is Viet INTEL trying to scam us plus the film maker has so much money in this he/ the film maker will not back down. The film maker has been told the truth and warned by many men who served in MACVSOG.

Bobby Garwood was a traitor who led VC patrols. I was given his photo in late fall 1968 on a mission.

And these Millet’s (producer and wife) have been told by a number of MACVSOG men that this guy is a fraud. Here are the facts we know are true.

http://www.macvsog.cc/john_hartly_rob.htm#JOHN

What disturbs me is they have been told the facts, yet; they still refuse to STOP/CEASE/DESIST.

I can state that I and four to five others spoke to an MIA’s mother and sister in 2002 at the Special Operations Association Reunion. The mother knew I told her the truth. Her concern was her daughter. The daughter was younger, and; she saw a hero in her brother. He was a hero. After 3 plus years of combat he was ambushed on the LZ coming in along with four other SF men and Rhade yards. I am saddened by this producer as he will open up wounds, trash this Gov, the military, and spread MORE LIB LIES ,whether intentionally or not. Those who have not yet had closure (the remains of their loved one returned)may well fall for this hype.
