Jesse MacBeth is a crusader against the war after what he saw firsthand as a solider in Ir- oh wait.
MacBeth, 23, of Tacoma, claimed to have killed more than 200 people, many at close range, some as they prayed in a mosque. He spoke at an antiwar rally in Tacoma and appeared in a 20-minute antiwar video that circulated widely on the internet.
Trouble is, none of MacBeth’s claims was true. He made it through only six weeks of army basic training, was never a Ranger and never set foot in Iraq.
The last thing the antiwar movement needs is key antiwar testimony from pathological liars.
Yes, I know everyone on our side is not a liar and some of the stories are true. But this sort of thing is meat in the Republican shark tank.
