Just a couple days after The New Republic editor Franklin Foer proclaimed that Scott Thomas Beauchamp's "reporting" had been verified (except for the fact that he was a little jerk before he got to Iraq -- not that the war made him one), we have additional confirmation that Foer is wrong and Beauchamp is a liar.
To your question: Were there any truth to what was being said by Thomas?
Answer: An investigation of the allegations were conducted by the command and found to be false. In fact, members of Thomas' platoon and company were all interviewed and no one could substantiate his claims.
As to what will happen to him?
Answer: As there is no evidence of criminal conduct, he is subject to Administrative punishment as determined by his chain of command. Under the various rules and regulations, administrative actions are not
releasable to the public by the military on what does or does not happen.
It will be very interesting to see how TNR responds.
