Cindy Sheehan's Anti-War Marine is a Fraud!
Here is the story of former Marine Sgt. Jimmy Massey as printed in the St. Louis Post Dispatch today. He has been out traveling with Cindy Sheehan on her bus tour across the country. Jimmy is a member of Veterans Against the Iraq War. Jimmy traveled to France where they reprinted his anti-war story. Florida Democrat Frank Gonzalez protested with Jimmy in August.
But, Jimmy Massey really needs to be behind bars! Once you read the gory, hateful details you will agree.
Jimmy says in the video, “When I became a recruiter they told me to lie to cheat.”
But, look who the real liar is!
This picture of Jimmy is from Free Republic.
USA TODAY carried a story told by Jimmy on 3/20/05. He later traveled with Cindy Sheehan on her way to Washington DC this fall.
In scores of newspaper, magazine and broadcast stories, at a Canadian immigration hearing and in numerous speeches across the country, Massey has told how he and other Marines recklessly, sometimes intentionally, killed dozens of innocent Iraqi civilians.
Among his claims:
Marines fired on and killed peaceful Iraqi protesters.
Americans shot a 4-year-old Iraqi girl in the head.
A tractor-trailer was filled with the bodies of civilian men, women and children killed by American artillery.
Massey’s claims have gained him celebrity. Last month, Massey’s book, “Kill, Kill, Kill,” was released in France. His allegations have been reported in nationwide publications such as Vanity Fair and USA Today, as well as numerous broadcast reports. Earlier this year, he joined the anti-war bus tour of Cindy Sheehan, and he’s spoken at Cornell and Syracuse universities, among others.
News organizations worldwide published or broadcast Massey’s claims without any corroboration and in most cases without investigation. Outside of the Marines, almost no one has seriously questioned whether Massey, a 12-year veteran who was honorably discharged, was telling the truth.
Each of his claims is either demonstrably false or exaggerated – according to his fellow Marines, Massey’s own admissions, and the five journalists who were embedded with Massey’s unit, including a reporter and photographer from the Post-Dispatch and reporters from The Associated Press and The Wall Street Journal.
You can read his whole lying story in the St. Louis Post Dispatch article HERE.
Jimmy Massey has a new book out called “Kill! Kill! Kill!”
And the Post Dispatch has another article questioning why the press was so eager to run Massey’s stories.
Hmmm. The real question is why the PD ran this story? It is completely out of character.
Jimmy Massey is the lowest of the low.
Hat Tip to JR Muller and Terry Harris!
This was an impressive move by the St. Louis Post Dispatch putting this investigative piece on its front page today! Could this be because of the new editor?
Michael Moore posted an article about Jimmy on his website.
Here Jimmy says that there was a Congressional investigation brought up against him.
Here Jimmy says a child whose home had been bombed died in his arms.
Michelle Malkin rightfully suggests sending a note to Ron Harris at the St. Louis Post Dispatch to thank him for shedding some light on this story… a great idea!
Glenn Reynolds is on the story again today.
