— Ace MacBeth released his "discharge paper" on his MySpace page. You will not be shocked to hear it is forged. It seems to be a real dischage paper, but he's (crudely) used a paint-program to block out the real information and replace it with false information, using a different font.
Rather transparent, eh?
Once again, he displays his complete cluelessness by failing to even concoct a passable forgery. He fails to include key entries which should be present were he actually a Ranger.
His forgery says he's "Ranger qualifiyd" (sic). This kid is so stupid he gives you morons a bad name. He's doing a forgery, and he can't even be bothered to look up the correct spelling of "qualified."
Q & O got a hold of his real dischage sheet. He was a boot-camp washout, and spent exactly one month and thirteen days in basic training before being kicked out for failure to adapt.
Allah has a big round-up. This idiot was so clueless that he didn't even adequately paint over the blocks of information that gave the game away-- you can read through his attempt to white-out his true dischare information.
From end of second line onwards: PERIOD OF DELAYED ENTRY PROGRAM [SEVERAL WORDS OBSCURED] LESS LEAVE (CREDITABLE FOR ALL PURPOSES EXCEPT PAY AND ALLOWANCE 49.00 DAYS [SEVERAL WORDS OBSCURED] MEMBER HAS NOT COMPLETED FIRST FULL TERM OF SERVICE // NOTHING FOLLOWS
As if this couldn't get more absurd, in some poetry forum, he claimed to have been a Navy SEAL, too.
Wow. He was really racking up the elite-forces training, wasn't he?
Allah's post links an awful lot of stuff, including the law on forgery. I'm not sure if MacBeth is guilty of a crime; the law specifies the alteration must be done with an intent to "defraud," which I would imagine has a definition like "likely to cause someone to change his position adversely due to the false information." As in getting someone to pay you money based on the forgery. I'm not sure that MacBeth's attempt to change political opinions would count.
He also links what may or may not be a bogus comment from MacBeth's sister (or half-sister, depending on which post of hers you read), stating that he's a lunatic (as in, officially committed) and a nasty little thief who steals from family members.
Finally, if it's not all sad enough, there is his incoherent defense of himself at MySpace and Indymedia. The kid is, it seems, borderline mentally challenged. I don't think his IQ could be far north of 80, tops. It's a a little disturbing that this drooling imbecile was even able to get into boot camp at all.
It hardly needs to be said that the lefty blogs and websites that pimped this little lunatic thief's "war stories" are now in distancing mode. I give them all the Fox Mulder The Truth Is Out There Award For Credulity Above And Beyond The Call Of Duty.
"I Want To Believe!"
Actually, they're denying that anyone on their side pimped it in the first place. Which is a fucking lie.

They'll out him as a poseur, and they might just beat his ass for wasting their time.
Men who went through BUDS tend to take a dim view of people assuming the title that they didn't earn.

Cindy and her ilk wonder why only a mere hundreds show up to their rallies not the thousands they dream of.
I think Jesse owns maybe all three SOCOM games for PS2 and has made it to officer rank in the online game. Maybe he thinks that counts for SEAL duty.
NonnyMouse, you are right this poser does need a all expenses paid ticket for a ass beating.

Here is the exact quote from the Army. Please note it doesn't say anything near what you claim"
"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."

What's so sad about this is how hateful and angry this punk kid is and how outrageously he's willing to totally invent things about Iraq and the soldiers there with absolutely zero basis, logic, evidence, or reason.
Was it a need for attention? Was it just sheer hatred of the United States? Does the clearly arabic name his parents had until he was 2 years old play some part in his view of the world?

The joke's on you, Ace. The proper spelling is "kwalified."

He didn't forge it for resale, but he forged it for the purposes of getting more speaking gigs, isn't that fraud?
And Okay, maybe the douche wasn't a ranger, but does it have any mention of his personal tutoring in the arts of the ninja offered by none other than Valerie Plame?
Posted by: Wickedpinto at May 27, 2006 12:28 PM (QTv8u)
Nahhhhh... he only produced this forgery AFTER he had done those speaking gigs.
So, even if he charged money for speaking gigs, the forgery came later and his sponors can't be said to have relied upon the documents, and can't be said to have been thereby defrauded.
If they didn't prosecute Bill Burkett, I can't see them prosecuting this sick little fish.

I want to know more about the assholes using him. If the IVAW is composed of real veterans, how comes their bullshit detectors didn't go off?

I thought you wrote, "...truth to Glover."- just because Danny Glover is such an 'asshat'...

Fellow travelers, and all that.

Probably did. But from their POV that doesn't matter does it? He just a tool to be exploited. If the whole thing got over, great. If it blows up, just disown him and put it all on him.
There's no real downside for IVAW...since these people seem completely immune to the notion of shame.

Kerry appears to be trying to refloat his sunken boat.

Kerry Pressing Swift Boat Case Long After Loss
By KATE ZERNIKE
John Kerry starts by showing the entry in a log he kept from 1969: "Feb 12: 0800 run to Cambodia."
He moves on to the photographs: his boat leaving the base at Ha Tien, Vietnam; the harbor; the mountains fading frame by frame as the boat heads north; the special operations team the boat was ferrying across the border; the men reading maps and setting off flares.
"They gave me a hat," Mr. Kerry says. "I have the hat to this day," he declares, rising to pull it from his briefcase. "I have the hat."
Three decades after the Vietnam War and nearly two years after Mr. Kerry's failed presidential bid, most Americans have probably forgotten why it ever mattered whether he went to Cambodia or that the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth accused him of making it all up, saying he was dishonest and lacked patriotism.
But among those who were on the front lines of the 2004 campaign, the battle over Mr. Kerry's wartime service continues, out of the limelight but in some ways more heatedly — because unlike then, Mr. Kerry has fully engaged in the fight. Only those on Mr. Kerry's side, however, have gathered new evidence to support their case.
The Swift boat group continues to spend money on Washington consultants, according to public records, and last fall it gave $100,000 to a group that promptly sued Mr. Kerry, a Democratic senator from Massachusetts, for allegedly interfering with the release of a film that was critical of him.
Some of the principals behind the Swift boat group continue to press their claims. John O'Neill, the co-author of the group's best-selling manifesto, "Unfit for Command," criticizes Mr. Kerry on television talk shows and solicits money for conservative causes and candidates. In a South Carolina newspaper, William Schachte recently reprised his allegation that he was aboard the small skimmer where Mr. Kerry received the injury that led to his first Purple Heart, and that Mr. Kerry actually wounded himself.
Swift boat message boards and anti-Kerry Web sites still boil with accusations that Mr. Kerry fabricated the military reports that led to his military decorations.
Mr. Kerry, accused even by Democrats of failing to respond to the charges during the campaign, is now fighting back hard.
"They lied and lied and lied about everything," Mr. Kerry says in an interview in his Senate office. "How many lies do you get to tell before someone calls you a liar? How many times can you be exposed in America today?"

They're not "fabrications" -- they're "over representations" to get the message across.

Allah quoting the UCMJ, is just. . .sorry Allah, you rock, but . . . .stupid.
Jesse was not active, he was not IRR, he was not anything, he can do as he pleases, that violates the UCMJ, without criminal investigation cuz he is not in the uniforme services in anyway..
HOWEVER! WARNING to loser servicemembers who think they can arbitrary make false claims when they come back from active service, the UCMJ DOES apply to innactive ready reservists, acting on the part of the military.
Meaning if you LIE about the millitary while in IRR? you ARE accountable under the UCMJ. This hasn't been practiced for a period of time, but it is true.
Fraud? jesse? maybe, UCMJ accusations, inapplicable. Jesse is SO MUCH A FRAUD that the military doesn't even care. isn't that how the left works?
"we need people so invalid that the populace we are accusing won't care" BTW, in all of the "leak" investigations, and in all of the "leak" quotes it's "administration officials" or "cogressional staff" or "FBI officials" or whatever, you . . . .in recent memory, you NEVER hear "a Military official on the condition of annonymity?"
is that cuz the Military are nazi's? or because the military knows that actions have repercussions and accept them?
