More Fakery

Jessie Macbeth, a Former Army Ranger and Iraq War Veteran Tells All. This 20 minute interview will change how you view the US occupation of Iraq forever. ...

So claims many moonbat sites that are hosting this video.

"She was begging me, begging me to save her and to save her kids, but, I didn't you know. I wanted to be , ah, I killed them. You know?"

Funny thing, though.....turns out this is all bullshit and Jessie is a hoax. The anti-war crowd has been in overdrive hyping this moron since he first appeared. Nobody thought to ascertain the veracity of his claims. Why bother? The agenda is to get the bad news out there as quickly as possible and worry about whether it's true or not later. According to Army spokesman John Boyce on 5/22/06:
“Initial research by the U.S. Army Special Operations Command at Fort Bragg shows no Soldier with the name of Jesse Macbeth having ever been assigned to the Special Forces or the Army Rangers — which are, in fact, two separate disciplines. This appears to be some sort of hoax. No Soldier by that name at Fort Lewis to our knowledge, in the past, either. Of course, the line about “go into the Army or go to jail” is vintage TV script not heard since the 1960s. There are also numerous wear and appearance issues with the Soldier’s uniform — a mix of foreign uniforms with the sleeves rolled up like a Marine and a badly floppy tan beret worn like a pastry chef. Of course, the allegations of war crimes are vague, as are the awards the Soldier allegedly received.”

Didn't see it and don't care to. However, I did watch Baghdad ER on HBO and I don't think I'll ever be the same.
