DICK BLUMENTHAL – FAKE WAR HERO
“We have learned something important since the days that I served in Vietnam,” Mr. Blumenthal said to the group gathered in Norwalk in March 2008. “And you exemplify it. Whatever we think about the war, whatever we call it — Afghanistan or Iraq — we owe our military men and women unconditional support.”
In fact, Blumenthal obtained five deferments to avoid going to Vietnam, and as a member of the Marine Reserves never went abroad, instead conducting drills and performing community work in D.C. and New Haven. While the Times couldn’t find other examples of Mr. Blumenthal misrepresenting his service history, it did indict his campaign for failing to correct numerous mistakes in the press, with multiple news sources writing about his service in Vietnam. Politicians lying, even about their qualifications, is no new thing. But sometimes, lying can be illegal.
Unsurprisingly, some veterans are furious over this newest scandal involving military service exaggeration. Lies involving military service have become such an issue, particularly over Iraq and Afghanistan service, that Congress passed the Stolen Valor Act of 2005 (signed into law in 2006)
