Local anti-war celeb, liar


Looks like a ”war veteran’s” allegations of American atrocities were just made up (this story is not about John Kerry):

A man who tried to position himself as a leader of the anti-war movement in the United States 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, Arizona, 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, Georgia, in 2003 because of his “entry level performance and conduct.”

…Macbeth also is wanted by the Safford County sheriff’s office in Arizona, where he is accused of illegal credit card use.
