Jesse Macbeth- Iraq Vet Faker

Who's a scumbag now?

We do not like the Iraq war, however, if everything in this story is true, we don't like stuff like this either.

Here's Jesse Macbeth, a poor slob of a person, a 23 year old con man who tried to claim he was an Iraq War Vet - when he actually got KICKED OUT of the Army after 6 weeks. Now he's charged with falsifying discharge papers AND collecting over 10 grand in vet benefits. What a scumbag.

A complaint unsealed Friday in U.S. District Court in Seattle charged him with one count of using or possessing a forged or altered military discharge certificate, and one count of making false statements in seeking benefits from the Veterans Administration.

"He approached us in early 2006, posing as a war veteran. He seemed very emotionally distressed about his experiences," said Amadee Braxton, a spokeswoman for Iraq Veterans Against the War, based in Philadelphia. "We later found out he had fabricated a lot of his military record and that he was somebody who had mental problems. We hoped that he would get those issues dealt with."
