The New Republic’s fabulist, Scott Thomas Beauchamp, is back like a bad case of acid reflux thanks to Spencer Ackerman, a ‘reporter’ on a tabloid website called Radar Online. It’s a self-described magazine chock full of ‘Pop, Politics, Scandal, and Style’.
Ackerman, who was fired by The New Republic, listens with fawning, rapt attention, as Beauchamp and his ex-TNR employee wife Elspeth Reeve whine, wail, bitch, and rehash all the ridiculous bullshit they produced while writing ‘dispatches’ for TNR’s “Shock Troops” articles.
As an added bonus, the toadying Ackerman lends his 2 cents:
“Among neoconservative war apologists and self-anointed superpatriots, discrediting the story became a crusade: Beauchamp must be proven a liar, and TNR must be humiliated”
Beauchamp slandered, libeled, and denigrated his fellow Soldiers in a national publication, with fabricated horseshit masquerading as ‘war stories’. Members of his unit, including the ones he tried to drag into his ‘memoirs’, have flatly denied his statements.
His wild-assed stories have been debunked repeatedly by his chain of command, as well as other Soldiers, both active duty and retired.
He brought shame on himself and undue stress that his unit did not need. He’s a narcissistic, delusional, problem child. Why has this little turd not been kicked out of the Army? The longer he stays, the more of a liability he becomes.
