Getting to the Bottom of the "Scott Thomas" Deal
Posted by: Dale Franks on Thursday, July 26, 2007

Well, now that we know who Scott Tomas is, his superiors in the 1ID know, too. They're taking a closer look at things, apparently. The PAO for the 1ID at FOB Falcon writes The Weekly Standard's Michael Goldfarb:
We are in the midst of a formal investigation into the allegations Pvt Beauchamp has made. That's all I can say for now.

Respectfully,

Well, good. I'm really curious to know what the deal is behind this.

To me, his stories just don't have the ring of authenticity. And some of the facts simply don't add up. For instance, the FOB Falcon PAO has already denied that any mass grave has been found in their Area of responsibility during the time in question. And, of course, the idea that you can drive over dogs in an M2 Bradley at will seems hardly in the realm of physical possibility. Assuming that the Vehicle commander would let you do a bit of dog-chasing in the first place, which, if I was the vehicle commander, I certainly wouldn't. Not unless I was seriously looking forward to the possibility of trying to change a broken track in the middle of Indian Country, not mention running over an IED.

We'll keep watching, that's for sure, if for no other reason than to see who gets court-martialed.

I think it is safe to say that there wont be any more articles anywhere from Scott Thomas Beauchamp on any issues in the foreseeable future.

Truthfully, I would be quite so sure. Having been placed in this position, means that he now has a celebrity. Celebrity that will be hard to ignore.

Does the name Joe Wilson ring any bells?
