Iraq - Fake war crimes video

Remember how the Left say they don't support the war but they support the troops? Well now they've been caught faking a video alleging war crimes by US troops in Iraq during a time of war.

Since we are at war, shouldn't Jessie MacBeth and Pepper Spray,who produced the film, be proscecuted for treason? The film was of very good quality and well produced; this was no amateur production.

And shouldn't those invovled who belonged to Iraq Veterans Against the War that were involved in in it's production also be prosecuted? Here's what they are currently running on their website.

IVAW Statement on MacBeth Video

Iraq Veterans Against the War recently learned of a video interview with Jesse MacBeth that directs viewers to IVAW’s website and phone number. IVAW was not made aware of the creation of this video program and our input on it was never sought by its producers. Jesse MacBeth is not a spokesperson for IVAW and any claims made by MacBeth about his service have not been verified. We are currently investigating these claims and will have a full statement pending its resolution.


While Pepper Spray announce on their website that the video is no longer for sale at the request of the IVAW, it still carries MacBeth's bogus and treasonous claims.

Army Ranger's testimony shows war crimes were ordered from higher up the chain of command, and were common...

There is a current story in the US press about a squad of Marines that are being investigated for "war crimes" after they murdered a whole Iraqi family one night a few months back. US officials are approaching this story as if this wasn't standard procedure, and are focusing on holding the individual Marines accountable. Jessie Macbeth blows the lid off that story.

Macbeth is a former US Army Ranger, who served in Iraq for 16 months before being wounded and ultimately discharged. His squad did night raids, using the same techniques the Marines are accused of, 4 or 5 times a night for many months. Macbeth, who is now a member of Iraq Veterans Against the War was interviewed for the public access TV show "Indymedia Presents."

In this interview Jessie describes killing children to make the parents talk. He describes one episode where his squad responded to the much-reported incident in Falluja where 4 US mercenaries were killed and hung from a bridge. Shortly after Iraqis killed the mercenaries, according to Macbeth, his squad of Rangers gunned down Iraqis praying inside a mosque on a holy day, then hung some of the bodies from rafters, and defaced the mosque with graffiti.


None of it's true.

The US Army says he was never in the Army and the left have pulled the video from Youtube and MySpace. I managed to do a screen grab of the video. It's not great quality and is 58mb. I may see if I can reduce it and put it on the web. People need to see how treasonous the left really are.

Here's a screen grab of Pepper Spray's ad for Jessie.



Peace Films hosted the video but as you can see have now taken it down. But here's the cache copy of the website. Right click and click "open in new window" to see larger image. Note the Peacefilm link at the top and the title of the video "Jessie MacBeth: Former Army Ranger and Iraq war vet".



Has anyone seen MSM reporting on this scandal?

Whoever is responsible needs to go to jail - starting with Jessie MacBeth.

If all of this sounds familiar, it should. John Kerry and his Winter Soldiers did the exact same thing during Vietnam. John Kerry was never prosecuted.

UPDATE

Lot's more information here.

Have you noticed how quiet the left of the blogsphere is after having jumped all over the "scandal"? Just like they did over CBS's forged documents.
