[The New Republic] forgets that [Scott Beauchamp] works for the United State Army, not the New Republic. [SNIP]
Am I supposed to feel guilty that [the war turned Beauchamp] into a monster before [Beauchamp] ever got [to the war]?Meanwhile, there is still no update from TNR regarding the Beauchamp situation since late July; that is, nothing in public.
Major John Cross - Executive Officer, 1-18 Infantry (Vanguards), Second (Dagger) Brigade Combat Team, First Infantry Division - was the lead investigating officer. After days of careful scrutiny and interviews with all involved personnel, he found all charges made by Beauchamp in The New Republic to be false.The details which Major Cross provides seem to confirm what we already know. Additionally, the Army seems to be allowing Beauchamp the opportunity to clean up his act and "to complete his tour of service in an honorable fashion." Good.
