Pvt. Beauchamp Admits Exaggerations and Falsehoods

The score stands at Weekly Standard 1, New Republic 0

Beauchamp Recants

THE WEEKLY STANDARD has learned from a military source close to the investigation that Pvt. Scott Thomas Beauchamp--author of the much-disputed "Shock Troops" article in the New Republic's July 23 issue as well as two previous "Baghdad Diarist" columns--signed a sworn statement admitting that all three articles he published in the New Republic were exaggerations and falsehoods--fabrications containing only "a smidgen of truth," in the words of our source.

Separately, we received this statement from Major Steven F. Lamb, the deputy Public Affairs Officer for Multi National Division-Baghdad:

An investigation has been completed and the allegations made by PVT Beauchamp were found to be false. His platoon and company were interviewed and no one could substantiate the claims.

According to the military source, Beauchamp's recantation was volunteered on the first day of the military's investigation. So as Beauchamp was in Iraq signing an affidavit denying the truth of his stories, the New Republic was publishing a statement from him on its website on July 26, in which Beauchamp said, "I'm willing to stand by the entirety of my articles for the New Republic using my real name."

That last graf is gonna leave a mark. The whole time he's telling the New Republic the story is true, he's telling the Army it ain't. Classic.

Of course New Republic can only fire him from his stringer gig and his wife/whatversheis can only cut him off... The Army can throw him in jail for lying to them.

Unless the Weekly Standard's source is way off base, it looks like the New Republic has egg on its face - again.

Be on the lookout for the "Fake But True" defense from the left. - Always a crowd pleaser.

Hot Update: It's probably just as well for the New Republic that the gig is up... They're shoddy "investigation" was being dismantled but someone doing a real investigation. (just keep scrolling down) Geeze, when will these people ever learn?

Meanwhile in the comments section, we have Barney on 24 hour suicide watch.

TNR will probably claim that he only recanted under duress and stick with the "accurate with only one minor error" line.

Another question is: what will become of the whistleblower, code named Gracie, who was fired for outing this jerk, and this ridiculous series of articles?

Could TNR be compelled to rehire "Gracie" and would he want to work there even if asked?

I don't see how Foer or the other senior editor involved in standing behind this story keep their jobs. They claimed to have multiple sources and to have "fact-checked" the "Thomas" stories, then continued to maintain the deception even knowing he had recanted.

Maybe TNR will just take the final leap and admit to being "a national journal of fiction."

Even so, they need to fire them both for violating the First Rule of Holes. If you can't obey that one religiously, you have no business in a leadership position in any organization.

Mike:

The military offensive in Iraq against al-Qaeda is working. Public support for the "surge" is on the upswing.

Dreadfully bad news for liberals and Democrats.

What can they do? How about another Abu Graib? Perfect -- AG generated a lot of anti-military sentiment and bought the war protesters a lot of free airtime. Just one problem though ... but no one is currently being abused by our troops in Iraq.

No biggie ... just find some stooge to make up a bunch of crap, then print it as an "eyewitness account" of "atrocities" committed by US military personnel.

But then that plan goes up in smoke. The lies are exposed.

What next?

Downplay the victories. So what if we are "winning." Our troops are just a bunch of morally retarded losers. The bad stuff just gets censored because Bush controlls the press. And the coalition government will fall apart. See -- look over there. Everybody hates each other. This is nothing but a disaster. We should have never gone into Iraq in the first place ... blah, blah, blah.

Mike:

Jim and kim,

You're both right on the money. No doubt he will claim that he was just writing a fictional "war journal" and that the onus is on TNR for stupidly mistaking his work as factual reporting rather than good creative writing.

But those claims of fact-checking by the editors are going to be rather hard to dismiss ... unless they want to claim that other editors reviewed the piece and agreed that "in fact" it was a good work of fiction.

1) either move to the next thread they can more easily twist into a scathing admonition of the author, completely forgetting this ever happened,

b) they'll bring up any number of "things that have happened in the past" to hold up against these stories as if they lend credibility to Beauchamp's claims,

iii) demand accountability, numerous links and irrefutable proof so they can then malign and personally attack the sources.

(That numbering system still makes me laugh, Paul.)

Notice that they never appeared at this thread. A veritable explosion of the cricket population there.

These people won't ever be honest about anything related to Bush, the war or anyone to the right of center. In this case, it's so much more important to demonize the war than anything else that they're willing to throw our troops under the bus in the process. But they support them!

Mark L:

For those that would claim that the incidents really happened, but Scottie lied that they did not to keep himself out of trouble with the army, uh-uh.

The most trouble he can get into by coming clean with an official army investigation is perhaps Administrative punishment. He is already an E2 (down from E3), so there is a limit on what they can do to him (bust him to E1 for a few months, put him on kybo duty for the rest of his tour, etc.).

If you lie during an official investigation, then you run the risk of breaking large rocks into small ones at Leavenworth for YEARS. Lying -- whether you lie by claiming you saw things that you did not or lie by claiming you did not see things that you did say -- would be punished more severely than any crime Scottie committed by inventing stories for Foolish Freddie Foer, or by admitting the things he wrote about were true.

If they were true and he did not report them, the punishment he faces would be less than he would face by claiming they did happen in Shock Troops, and then lying and claiming they did not happen in during the official investigation. If the events did happen, there were other witnesses that would be wanting to protect their butts against charges of lying to an Army investigator, and it only takes one person cracking for the truth to come out.

Furthermore, what does Basra have to do with the subject at hand?

I admire your enthusiasm for trying to push your point down our throats and such, but you're a bit off the mark (and, by a "bit," I mean "WAY OFF").

The fact that Basra is deteriorating as the Brits pull back shows exactly why withdrawal from Iraq is such a bad idea. If this happens on the small scale of Basra with U.S. forces still in country, imagine what would happen on the larger scale with U.S. forces gone.

People keep comparing Iraq to Vietnam. Maybe one of the lessons from Vietnam that should be remembered was that a whole lot of people died when the U.S. withdrew from the country.

Then let it not be said that TNR is incapable of the rigorous investigation so required to re-report these events. Rather, let us note the stalwart defense of its reporter-novelist in the face of intense scrutiny and despite the facts as we now know them to be.

I don't think anyone here needs to reserve judgment. It's never stopped you before, so why would I expect you to now? I made a comment about Paul's source - the Weekly Standard. And then responded to another commenter's comment about the surge. Pretty much it.

Paul says he's working on a piece about Basra and we can chat about that when it's posted. Meanwhile when the Weekly Standard is the source of something about the war, I wait for further confirmation. Maybe they're right. All of you, of course, assume they are. I'll wait for more.

Son Of The Godfather:

JFO, deflect much?

It is an interesting, yet ineffective ploy to change the subject. It means you have LOST your argument.

Let's take a closer look at what that means, JFO, Barney Fife, jp2, FreedomJerk, etc...

You are no doubt disheartened that this "soldiers" story of attrocious behaviour within the military are absolute fabrications.
I assert that the majority of Americans who love their country, EVEN those who disagree with the President, or our involvement in Iraq, would be RELIEVED that the stories had zero validity... If John F'n Kerry were POTUS, and Iraq was being overseen by a Democratic White house, the sane among us would still share he same support for the military, not hope that stories of misconduct appearing in some birdcage liner was true.

No, instead you (and your bottom-feeding kind) consider the revelation of total fiction by this tool to be a setback for your cause...

What is that cause?

Everything you seem to argue (poorly) for or against seems to be counterintuitive for anyone with even a minimal love of their country.

Do you hate America solely for the acts of the current administration? Perhaps for your dislike of the POTUS?

Do you hate America for some other reason?

Stop being such p*ssies, and lay it on the line. Honestly, use a little introspection to determine why it is you share a view of this great Nation that are counter-productive at best... treasonous at worst.

Disagreeing with people who love and take pride in America and those who defend her, merely for the sake of being contrary to your world view, is both childish and cowardly.

Like the ignorant kids wearing the "Che" t-shirts you are the attention-seeking whores who enjoy being contrary just for the sake of being contrary. "Look at me!... I am a non-conformist!... i speak (my)Truth to Power!... From the safety of my keyboard!"

Which of you would physically approach a soldier returning from Iraq, one on one, and tell him you know of the heinous acts you believe he has committed?

Thought so.

Not only do I question your patriotism (it has been established that you have none), I question your entire belief system...Rational people cannot think as you do.

Apologies for the rant... Except to the wastes of skin it's directed at.

D-Hoggs:

Well said S.O.G. It is truly, truly disturbing that jfo, barney and the like are dissapointed at the prospect of these stories being proven false. I just can't even imagine what goes on in their dark and twisted minds. If jfo had any intellectual honesty whatsoever, he would have simply said, "With all due respect (well not really) I'll wait till some source other than the Weekly Standard verifies the story. AS SHOULD HAVE BEEN DONE WITH THE ORIGINAL TNR STORIES. Let us hope you are all correct and these awful stories turn out to be false"

"Once it was established... (Below threshold)

"Once it was established that the Prvt was an actual soldier in Iraq I wanted a recant from the doubters and accusers."

Is that why you said, "You guys are more upset that the Prvt exposed the ugly side of our occupation then the acts themselves."

or: "The right is so paranoid of any negative story out of Iraq they have to do all they can to discredit it."

Among many other things. The point is, Barney, that while you stated that you didn't know if the stories were true, you did everything you could to try and find evidence that they were.

The difference here is so wide one could drive a Peterbuilt thru it. While you're valiantly trying to find evidence of truth to Beauchamp's stories with the flimsiest of questions...

1) Can a Bradley do that? Implying that if it can then the stories are more likely to be true.

2) OMG! A cemetery was indeed discovered! You were trying to establish the fact that a soldier would put a skull on his head and prance around simply based on the fact that a cemetery was discovered.

...we, meaning me and others besides you, are trying to find the truth - period. Another difference is also clear as a bell; while we're willing to give the benefit of the doubt to the un-named and anonymous soldiers being slandered, you, by your every deed and word, show a willingness to believe more that the stories are true than that they aren't and are far more concerned about Beauchamp's reputation than those who are unable to defend themselves from your implications.

You can deny it Barney, but it just ain't gonna fly.

BarneyG2000:

All your cut and paste jobs just support my argument. I was pointing out the lengths the right will go to perpetrate your fantasy about Iraq. Again, I did find the actions all that terrible or surprising (compared to rapes, murders and loosing nearly 200K automatic weapons). We have kids making fun of someone's looks, killing dogs and playing with bodies. Is that the norm? No! but does it happen when bored kids are stationed in a hell-hole for 14-months?

I pointed out evidence that those things could have happened.

On the other hand, there is obvious evidence that the Surge Is Working, headlines/stories are very wrong. Where are the fact checkers from the right?

The number of US causalities in July were twice the number than in July 2006 and higher than the average monthly total for 2006. The number of Iraqi causalities in July were higher than 2006 and and higher than June of 2007. The Sunnis have quit the government, and the rest have left for vacation.

A few people linked to a Balloon Juice post (a site and blogger I used to really like) and his whole post was basically, "Sure I was wrong, but I was right! And the Reich-wingers? Sure they were right, but they were wrong!"
Read it, it's a beautiful distillation of insane lefty thought that has me wondering if John Cole is just doing performance art.
In other words, I'm wondering if he's not being obtuse and nitwity on purpose just to see how the different sides react. I mean, he actually admits that Beauchamp is a fabulist, but claims victory. That's as beautiful a distillation of the dishonesty and logical bankruptcy of the left as can be seen anywhere outside of Ace of Spades or IMAO.

Your liberal buddies who were all excited about the shock troops articles are now running for cover. I noticed it took you trolls a while to show up.

U.S. Toll in Iraq Lowest in 8 Months

By KIM GAMEL
The Associated Press
Tuesday, July 31, 2007; 5:09 PM

BAGHDAD -- American military deaths for July rose to 73 on Tuesday with the report of a Marine killed in combat, but the toll was still the lowest in eight months as the U.S. said it was gaining control of former militant strongholds.

Well, it means nothing other than that you are a disgusting hypocrite. You say you don't know if the stories are true, yet at the same time you say the Pvt. was correct, and that attempts to show he was lying were PROVEN wrong!! Jesus, you are a fucking moron.

BarneyG2000:

"You didn't "lie" Babble2000 but you're sure not telling the truth." Paul

Really, let's look at the facts. You say the causality count was the lowest in 8-months. Let's see if that is deceptive. The count for July was 80. The count for March was 81, Feb 81 and Jan 83. Hardly a statistical difference.

Over the last two years the number of causalities in July dropped compared to the previous of next month:

2005
June = 85
July = 54
Aug = 78

2006
June = 65
July = 43
Aug = 61

So a drop in July of 07 is meaningless (as far as tracking progress), but the right points to this one statistic as proof the surge is working.

Now who is not telling the truth?

2. When confronted with the facts, the rats scurry. Instead of admitting that this puts a serious dent in what credibility the left media still has, you guys want to either change the subject, or obfuscate.

Barney, open up your little peanut brain and suck this in: if a soldier blatently lied, and made up a story, that is EXACTLY the same as if the person was not a soldier, and wrote the same fiction from somewhere else. The point is that it was fiction. It is absolutely irrelevant where he wrote it from. If it didn't happen, it didn't happen PERIOD.

You've parroted TNR in an effort to discredit the possibility they were wrong all along.

Your proof? That Major Lamb had no knowledge of a recantation NOT the the ARMY had no knowledge.

Despite his position as PAO it IS possible he answered TNR's query with the truth but you are attempting to conflate that way beyond reality.

BUT what we DO KNOW and by a named source (Major Lamb) is this..."An investigation has been completed and the allegations made by PVT Beauchamp were found to be false. His platoon and company were interviewed and no one could substantiate the claims."
