"Now PJM’s Bob Owens interviews Major John Cross, who led the U.S. Army’s
investigation into Private Beauchamp’s shocking claims. Even more shocking is
what Cross reveals below: Among other findings, there is no credible evidence
that TNR made any attempt at fact checking prior to publishing the articles.
Furthermore, not one of the soldiers interviewed under oath in the investigation
corroborated Beauchamp’s story."
No fact checking, if that is the case, then this scandal is even bigger than I had thought. The only reason I can think that they wouldn't fact check, is if they just assumed that they could not get the facts because of the war zone, or they felt like they would not be given the facts. Neither are good reasons.
