doesnt surprise me, after all the government would of course want the capture to look a little bit less dramatic and show that Saddam was clearly defeated and all that
but then again, why should we believe this guy either?
Perhaps this guy is lying, but then what's his reason?
OTOH, you've got an administration that is constitutionally incapable of telling the truth. Hell, we know they lied to play up the Jessica Lynch "rescue". These guys spin faster than a nuclear-powered merry-go-round.
Which one are you likely to believe?
Neither. It doesn't matter. The fact is, they DO have Saddam. War's over. Time to get out. Oh wait..
Since when were Marines involved in this capture? The Army's 1st Brigade of the 4th Infantry Division and a few SpecOps units participated, nowhere have I heard about Marines being part of this. This guy's BSing
EDIT: And they used 600 soldiers, not 20 like he claims.
Interesting story, but I have no more reason to believe him than the government's account.
Less reason. How do we know this person was ever in the US Military? Why is he in Saudi Arabia? If he served previously why is he not still serving?
Ah... "Lebanese Origin"......
I checked with the Marine Corp's web site...according to them this guy never existed. I've got a friend of mine doing a personnel records search but that will take time...I'll keep everyone posted.
This Marine Corp Website?
Which Marine Corp website can you go to in order to find out about random marines?
So far the only evidence presented is that this guy can't be found on the USMC locator. Which is ironic, cause that would be relying on the military to prove something the military doesn't want proved. It's not like the military hasn't stretched the truth a little before has it?
Your friend has access to the Marine Corp's personnel records? And he's searching them for you? Is that legal?
The FOIA is very useful...however, they may deny the request (and probably will), but it's worth a shot.
Here's the Marine Corps page I used...
