Army: Beachamp Investigation Concluded
Matt Sanchez -- a Marine Reservist, resently in Iraq interviewing the troops (not on active duty)
After a thorough investigation that lasted nearly a week the 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division has concluded that the allegation made by Private Thomas Scott Beauchamp, the "Baghdad Diarist", have been "refuted by members of his platoon and proven to be false"

The official investigation the 4th IBCT Public Affairs Office qualified as "thorough and professional" concluded late August 1st. Officials would not speculate on the possibility of further action against Private Beauchamp, nor would they confirm his current whereabouts or status.

Sergeant First Class Robert Timmons, the acting public affairs official of the 4th IBCT, 1st ID, in the absence of Major Luke Luedeke, remarked that despite the high level of attention this case received in the American media, soldiers at the 4th IBCT, 1st Inf. Div, a "surge" Brigade, have not been distracted from their missions.

In the month of July, Operation Dragon Hammer resulted in the capture of over 110 detainees and "no mission has been delayed or adversely effected by the investigation into Private Beauchamp's allegations of misconduct among the soldiers of his unit the 1st Battalion, 18th Infantry Regiment", said Timmons.

The 4th IBCT, 1st ID Area of Operations, Rasheed District in Western Baghdad is one of the toughest and most violent districts in the Iraqi capital.

#1 To the nutroots types, this just means that the Army is covering up what really happened. And they are now silencing a brave soul who dared to speak lies truth to power.

#2 Today Jimmy's World is just SOP for the MSM. Once they had some sprinkling of shame for fraud. Now, it's all about the narrative, never about the facts.

#3 Well, after intensive investigation on my part, I've concluded that Pvt. Beauchamp can't write for s**t.

Or do thurough research, either.

Guess he'll just have to slide by on his charm. Or his connections.

#4 I am going to bet that Pvt Beauchamp spendsthe later partof his tour fighting urine stains or litter and not the enemy. How could you trust him on your squad? Maybe they could make a fire team composed of this yahoo, Lt Watada, and some of the other wankers/whiners and see how well they do.
