    Not that the left will let the truth get in the way of this non story - here is what happened with dates and times


    Limbaugh Makes His Case
    He’s got the story on the “phony soldiers” controversy — if anyone will listen.

    By Byron York


    On Monday evening, September 24, Rush Limbaugh was struck by a story that appeared on ABC’s World News with Charles Gibson. “A closer look tonight at phony heroes,” Gibson said in his introduction to the report, which was about men who claim to be veterans but are not. In the story, reporter Brian Ross discussed two men who claimed to have served in wartime, possibly to receive free veterans’ hospital and other benefits.

    And then this: “Authorities say the most disturbing case involves this man, 23 year-old Jesse Macbeth,” Ross continued. “In a YouTube video seen around the world, Macbeth became a rallying point for anti-war groups, as he talked of the Purple Heart he received in Iraq and described how he and other U.S. Army Rangers killed innocent civilians at a Baghdad mosque.” Ross played video of Macbeth saying, “Women and men, you know — while in their prayer, we started slaughtering them.”

    As it turns out, none of that happened. Macbeth was in the Army for just six weeks, was discharged before completing basic training, and was never in Iraq. “Last week in federal court in Seattle,” Ross concluded, “Macbeth offered an apology for defaming the real American heroes as he admitted to lying about his service record and his supposed atrocities.” Ross’ story was headlined “Phony War Vets” on the ABC News website.

    Among the viewers that night was a person who works for Limbaugh’s radio program. “My call screener saw the ABC News report and he told me about it,” Limbaugh told me yesterday. Limbaugh decided to make the story the subject of his commentary for Tuesday, September 25, a commentary that played in the morning on the 600 stations that carry Limbaugh’s show. “We researched it and put the commentary together,” Limbaugh continued. “In our research, we also found a story on FoxNews.com from, I believe, May 20th on Macbeth that had ‘Phony Soldier’ in the headline. We also found a press release from the U.S. Attorney, Western District of Washington, on 9/21, who had successfully prosecuted eight of what he called ‘Fake Soldiers’ who had defrauded the VA system.”

    So Limbaugh told Macbeth’s story in the commentary and added his own words about the people who had made Macbeth a hero. “They have to lie about such atrocities because they can’t find any that fit the template of the way they see the US military,” Limbaugh said. “In other words, for the American anti-war left, the greatest inconvenience they face is the truth.”

    Facts do not matter to the left. They never have. All that matters is that they repeat their lies over and over till someone believes them from sheer repetition. They have no shame and no sense of decency. All they care about is that the "ends justify the means".

    yawn....

    "Saddam AlQaeda gassed his own people WMD's 9/11 Saddam AlQaeda gassed his own people WMD's 9/11 Saddam AlQaeda gassed his own people WMD's 9/11 Saddam AlQaeda gassed his own people WMD's 9/11 Saddam AlQaeda gassed his own people WMD's 9/11 Saddam AlQaeda gassed his own people WMD's 9/11 Saddam AlQaeda gassed his own people WMD's 9/11 Saddam AlQaeda gassed his own people WMD's 9/11 Saddam AlQaeda gassed his own people WMD's 9/11 Saddam AlQaeda gassed his own people WMD's 9/11 Saddam AlQaeda gassed his own people WMD's 9/11 Saddam AlQaeda gassed his own people WMD's 9/11 Saddam AlQaeda gassed his own people WMD's 9/11 Saddam AlQaeda gassed his own people WMD's 9/11 Saddam AlQaeda gassed his own people WMD's 9/11 Saddam AlQaeda gassed his own people WMD's 9/11 Saddam AlQaeda gassed his own people WMD's 9/11 Saddam AlQaeda gassed his own people WMD's 9/11 Saddam AlQaeda gassed his own people WMD's 9/11"

    over and over and over again.... but hey...the "ends" - turning american public opinion away from "where the hell is OBL" to "that goddamn Saddam attacked us, let's go get him" certainly justified such repetitive chicanery, eh?

    You guys must take naivety courses. How is it you defend this blowhard?

    ""Yet Limbaugh's "rant,'' as Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid called it this week, certainly sounded like a slap at "phony soldiers'' protesting the war -- and Limbaugh went on to expand his roster of "genuine phony soldiers'' on his show Friday, adding Rep. Jack Murtha of Pennsylvania, a retired Marine colonel and decorated Vietnam veteran who opposes the war in Iraq."

    Murtha? Limbaugh is blowhard.

    Talk about REAL smears

    Murtha said how the Marines killed civilians in cold blood, and the left is silent or they become his defense lawyer when he is called on it

    Sure thing. The man condemned Marines publicly as a political stunt. He made claims that simply are not true and have been shown to be untrue since he made them. The JACKASS would be Murtha.
