Jessie Macbeth

Ready to get pissed? Some burger flippin' punk has made a video impersonating an Army Ranger and is spreading lies claiming he was forced to commit atrocities in Iraq. The Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW) are the apparent sponsors of this scum bag, flashing their name across the bottom of the screen in his "interview". It's one thing if legitimate veterans who have served desire to speak out. It's another thing when activists manufacture new identities to give their movement a aura of legitimacy it would not otherwise have.

So, how does one know Jessie Macbeth is a fraud? The photo of him on his wall in his "Ranger" uniform is wrong. All wrong. Hell, he is wearing the beret backwards! The beret flash should be over his left eye. His camo is the wrong pattern, his sleeves are rolled wrong. He wears the exact same shirt in the interview as he wears in the photo. The camo pattern is exactly the same. He claims to have 2 different types of combat badges, CIB and CAB. CIB is for Combat Infantry and CAB is Combat Action, you get one or the other, not both. He uses every cliche ever uttered in a feeble attempt at establishing credibility. I'm sure he cannot state the name of his CO, his XO or his platoon leader because of national security issues or some bullshit story like that. He would do better putting panties on his head and claiming to be Iraqi.

So why should Americans both for and against the war in Iraq work to expose this sack of shit? Because his fraudulent video will be used by the enemy to inspire others to kill our soldiers. Whether you are for or against the war in Iraq, an American should be for the men who serve this country. Therefore, you cannot fall in line with these liars and scoundrels who produce tapes of false accusations represented as fact and still call yourself American. These tapes will no doubt be used by the enemy to recruit more followers to kill more Americans. Jessie Macbeth is more than a liar, a poser and a fraud. He is complicit in the killing of any American who dies in combat on Iraqi soil after the release of this film.

How does it feel Jessie? Knowing that your lies may have recruited one more insurgent to kill an American serviceman must make it hard to sleep at night. Yeah, you participated in the killing of innocent people, just not the ones you claim to have harmed. It's time to call bullshit on this fraud and shut him down. Jessie, who was your CO? Hell, if it's a matter of national security, what was one, just one of your dead buddy's names? No answer huh? I didn't think so.

Update--------------
Iraq Veterans Against the War says (via email): "The film needs to come down now if it hasn't already. No one checked with IVAW before using our logo, no one did any kind of fact checking, and Jesse wasn't authorized to speak like that on our behalf."

Peacefilms.org has removed the fraudulent video and replaced it with a nice topographical image of the world. Looks like the shitbirds are trying to create distance. Let nobody forget who gave little Jessie his platform for his lies.

One More Update-------------
The US Army checked on Jessie MacBeth’s claimed service. It turns out, not surprisingly to anybody with their head out of their ass, that MacBeth has no Army service record anywhere. Nothing. Nada. Zilch. Period. His claims were fabricated from delusions within his own twisted, inadequate mind, and spiced up with a sprinkling of cliche's obtained from Hollywood films. Jessie MacBeth is a despicable little pencil necked liar who is a discredit to the stain on his mother's mattress. Here is a direct quote by Army spokesman John Boyce:
“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.”


A Final Update:
The DD214 of Jesse MacBeth.
One month and 13 days in the US Army.
Case closed.

I didn't whatch the video yet because my roomates won't appreciate the string of foul language that will acompany it, but is there anything he did or said that is a felony. I hope there is. There was a time in this country where someone who did that would get the crap beat out of him and the police would be fine with it. It is too bad I was born too late to see that time.

"They" pulled this same crap during Vietnam, too. "They" got away with it... at the time. But payback's a bitch, even if it takes three decades to find you - just ask John Kerry.

This shitstain needs to do prison time, and his asshat enablers and handlers need to get their houses sued out from under them.

Amazing. What a half-assed, bold-faced lie. Looks like some kids threw together what they thought was a uniform, made a disgraceful story up, and hit play. The worst part is, some idiots will buy this crap.

Al Queda ought to send them a thank you note.

This reminds me of the VietNam Veterans Against the War. Very few were real Nam vets. Same thing here. Same song ; differant war. This guy is a phoney. Do not be deceived by charlatans.

You'll also notice the sleeves rolled the USMC way, not Army. The flash on his Beret is for 1st SFG, not Rangers. he's 20, which means he'd have enlisted at 15 or so, and been "handpicked" for Ranger school, which doesn't happen.

Yeah, we've been ripping him apart on forums since last night. What an assclown.

I wanted to nab a copy of the video for posterity - looks like the folks at peacefilms.org are pulling the plug. The site is blanked and the videos aren't in the same spot they originally were.

CAB stands for Combat Action Badge, not Combat Auxillary.

You are correct, those not eligible for the CIB may be awarded the CAB.

I hope some Ranger puts his foot in this idiots ass.
The reason the Vietnam idiots were so successfull was the time it took for information to get out. Now its instant. and people don't have the sense to determine B.S from fact.

I thought that indymedia would want some balance and truth in reporting in hopes of clearing there name some. I decided to go ahead and write a short blurb for them so that all their readers could know what was going on. Feel free to read it here

Or, at least until some editor notices what I've done. *snicker*

If you want a copy of the video, there is a mirror linked at the bottom of the Wikipedia article.
