Franklin, are you there?

Confederate Yankee reminds us it’s been exactly two months since Michael Goldfarb of the Weekly Standard started the ball rolling on the Baghdad Fabulist.

We know that Scott Thomas Beauchamp, the author of the three stories Foer ran in The New Republic, had a chance to speak with The New Republic 12 days ago. We also know that Beauchamp has refused to discuss his original claims with any other media organization, and gave a blanket statement to the PAO to relay to media organizations that he will not discuss the incidents in his stories, period. It appears that Beauchamp will not speak to Franklin Foer any more about these articles, and that he may have frozen him out, perhaps upon the direction of a lawyer.

CY has more on the story to date and a challenge for Foer.

I am glad that Bob Owens is keeping this story alive. To me, the issue is bigger than one jagoff and the fools at TNR. The left has been portraying American troops as psychopathic killers for over 30 years. Unfortunately they had some success in making it stick to the Vietnam generation but we have the chance to kill this narrative before it takes hold on this generation of American heroes. It will take time and perseverance but in the end the truth about our troops should come out as well as about those who defamed them.

So to Franklin and the rest of the gang at TNR…put up or fess up when it comes to Beauchamp.
