Another Fake Soldier Tale Debunked

by Mark5019 / May 23, 2006 11:37 PM PDT

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. That's just a rough estimate. A lot of them at close range . . . they would actually feel the hot muzzle of my rifle on their forehead . . . we'd do stuff that would scare them first . . . beat 'em up or kick 'em or hit the wife . . . slaughtering 30-40 people a night sometimes, women and children . . . I was trained,

wheres the media coverage again ignoring this crap if it was true be 1st page above the fold:(

If you ever use "Mark all....."
by Steven Haninger / May 19, 2007 11:38 AM PDT

feature, that's supposed to clear the slate. It doesn't always work, however. I think the "NT" posts throw in a monkey wrench sometimes. There's generally no reason to click on them anyway so they stay marked as unread. You either need to tediously click on each of them or just use Mark all as Read to know when you've seen enough.
