It Couldn’t Happen to a nicer guy
Posted by: Dale Franks on Friday, May 18, 2007

Jesse Macbeth, the famous "former Army Ranger" and "Iraq War veteran" is in the news again.
A man who tried to position himself as a leader of the anti-war movement by claiming to have participated in war crimes while serving in Iraq is facing federal charges of falsifying his record.

Jesse Adam Macbeth, 23, formerly of Phoenix, garnered much attention on blogs and in some alternative media after he began claiming in 2005 to have been awarded a Purple Heart for his service, which he said included slaughtering innocents in a Fallujah mosque. His story was contradicted by his true discharge form, showing that he was kicked out of the Army after six weeks at Fort Benning, Ga., in 2003 because of his "entry level performance and conduct."

A complaint unsealed Friday in U.S. District Court in Seattle charged him with one count of using or possessing a forged or altered military discharge certificate, and one count of making false statements in seeking benefits from the Veterans Administration.
Karma's a bitch.

So the Vast Imperial Industrial Military Death Machine finally claims its victim, a pitiful vetige of humanity, this is what happens in Bush’s Amerikkkka raise the fist to Machine be ground under its wheels, all to the applause of the Right Wing Death Beast (RWDB-if your not a Tim Blair afficiando)Noise and Attack Machine.

God, soon we’ll have the mandatory Two Minute Hate, who will Goldstein do you think? Andrew Sullivan, Cindy Sheehan....

We can only pray that the Sheeple look up in time to save us from the impending social-economic-ecologic collapse that the Mechano-Capitalistic Dependence Machine is bringing closer each new smoke, noise, and death filled dawn!

We can only pray that the Reality-based Community and other Progressives can muster the almost super-human capacity to bestir the Zombies from their couches and SUV’s and take action before it is too late!
