Sauce A, as it turns out, is nothing more than a prankster. That has been well established and there the 'investigation' of him ought to have stopped. I repeat- He is not an ax murderer or a terrorist- he's a prankster and a con. The obsession that Murnut has with utter personal destruction of this guy- now under the aegis of teary eyed uber-patriotic flag waving over 'stolen valor' (as if Murnut himself is a war hero) is truly pathological.
Gee, I wonder what clueless idiot wrote this BS? Well, one thing that is clear about this idiot is that s/he never served in the military. That is certain. Furthermore, one can guess that this person believes that the job the military does is not important, or even necessary, in their minds. Because there can be no other reason why someone would minimize the crime of stolen valor. And yes, it is a crime, just as is fraud.
Murnut did not have to serve in the military to know how sick and truly pathological
is the crime and fraud of stolen valor. There are many people who did not serve, but perhaps a family member did serve, and maybe that family member made the ultimate sacrifice. You don't need to have served to know the important contributions made by people who did serve, and did so with honor and selflessness.
No, it is the idiot who wrote this crap who demeans those who serve with their words of minimization for stolen valor, that person is the pathological one.
And that idiot should grow-up and stop being a hypocrite. I'll bet this person would be concerned about CIA activities that amount to that of "prankster and con." But this person would not minimize those CIA cons in the same way they minimize the Source A fraud.
Fraud is fraud. It is NOT a victimless crime. It affects the people who buy into the fraud. And the fraudster themselves, when caught, would wish to minimize the harm their fraud did to those who believed.
