News of the TNR Fabulist

Bob Owens of Confederate Yankee has been on the Scott Beauchamp beat almost from the start. Today, he scores another hit on Mr. Elspeth Reeve and his stories of plunder and debauchery by interviewing the XO of Beauchamp’s Battalion, the man who conducted the investigation into the “Baghdad Diarist”.

Not surprisingly we find Beauchamp was full of crap.

(Maj. John) Cross: In the course of my investigation, I did not interview anyone who corroborated PVT Beauchamp’s claims in “Shock Troops” that a Soldier was observed wearing skull parts recovered from a “Saddam-era dumping ground” on his head, dogs were being deliberately hit by Bradley Fighting Vehicles, and that a disfigured woman was openly mocked by Soldiers in the FOB Falcon dining facility.

Owens: What has been the reaction among the members of Beauchamp’s company to the claims he made in “Shock Troops?”

Cross: Many Soldiers were upset about how the Soldiers in the article were portrayed as callous and uncaring. These characteristics do not reflect the professionalism and integrity of the Vanguard battalion and the high standards of conduct demanded by the Dagger Brigade’s leadership.

You can read the whole interview at Pajamas Media and enjoy the sweet, sweet schadenfreude.
