The New Republic’s Story Falls Apart

I’ve avoided commenting on Scott Thomas (Beauchamp) story until now for two reasons:
1) The allegations in the New Republic stories are so repulsive that I deeply hoped they were untrue and,
2) I had no independent knowledge which could confirm or deny the stories veracity-all I could offer was idle speculation that the reporting seemed fishy.
It now seems it was all a lie. That’s good I suppose, but the reputation of the United States and our armed forces have been damaged and propaganda provided for our enemies . Last time I checked providing aid and comfort to the enemy in time of war is a serious crime.
