Beauchamp sinks TNR

Posted By Uncle Jimbo • [August 07, 2007]

I was roundly scourged by the left for not only pegging Scotty for the punk he is, but in the course of that noting he might wanna watch his ass since he just slung a bunch pf poo and it hit all over the others in his unit who didn't do the heinous shite he made up. I wonder if the left simply thought that since he was obviously telling the truth about our Shock Troops, why would anyone get mad. I mean we all dig a cool skull cap eh?

From the Weekly Standard's Michael Goldfarb who has kicked this story's ass from jump street.

THE WEEKLY STANDARD has learned from a military source close to the investigation that Pvt. Scott Thomas Beauchamp--author of the much-disputed "Shock Troops" article in the New Republic's July 23 issue as well as two previous "Baghdad Diarist" columns--signed a sworn statement admitting that all three articles he published in the New Republic were exaggerations and falsehoods--fabrications containing only "a smidgen of truth," in the words of our source.

I would be remiss not to note that this is in sweet congruence with my call on the dung beetle, for which I was branded an advocate of violence, me a pacifist. I know...I was stunned too.

Scott Thomas is a lying sack of shit. Every unit has a Scott Thomas, the whiny pissant whose brilliance is never recognized and who is always being abused by the chain of command for stuff that's not his fault. It would be normal to hear folks  telling him to STFU and do his damn job.

and this when TNR kept trying to fly this pig

Since we are required by the laws of the digital lynch mob to comment on the weak ass tea served up by Franklin "Which way is the door" Foer. I will state that they have added nothing of substance and I stand firmly behind my initial call. Beauchamp is a lying sack of shit, and the tales he told were based around a kernel of truth, but just a kernel. Next slide.

So as it turns out US troops are not heartless barbarians and that far too many people on the left can't accept that. Well from one of those barbarians who just happens to have more humanitarian and disaster assistance work under his belt than any of the smirking elite sitting around the table at Franklin "Which way is the door?" Foer's editorial meetings, F**k you very much! You finished what Glass started, and may this serve as a lesson to the many other supposed honest media sources, your agenda is pitifully obvious and your tactics so childishly unsophisticated that I almost feel guilty smacking you around. But I will, and I hope it stings.

» 嘘つき二等兵、取り調べで嘘を全面的に認める! from In the Strawberry Field
この間からイラク駐留の米兵の悪行についてザ・ニューリパブリック(TNR)誌のイラク日記というコラムでショック・トゥループという記事を書いたスコット・トーマス・ビーチャム陸軍二等兵の話をしてきたが、本日、陸軍の捜査でビーチャム二等兵はTNRに書いたことはすべて嘘であることを認めたという記事が8月6日付けのウィークリースタンダードに掲載された。これは先日マット・サンチェズが報告しConfederate Yankeeのオーウェンが確認を取った陸軍による捜査の結果をさらに詳しく報道したものだ。 事件の背景は... [Read More]
