Korey Rowe Supports Threatening Lawyers, Exaggerates War Record
I was doing some research when I discovered a group called Veterans for 9/11 Truth, which I hope are more "veterans" than the scholars are “scholars”. I noticed this short interview with Looser Korey Rowe, also a veteran and gave it a quick listen.
At first he plays lawyer. I am not sure what law school he graduated from, but he should get his money back. From the 2:30 mark:
Essentially what is going on, although I can’t comment a lot, it is in a legal process right now but, uh essentially what happened is the Naudet brothers about 2 weeks ago saw Loose Change, didn’t like the representation of the material, got in contact with Paramount who owns the rights to their footage, and Paramount got in touch with a lawfirm that represents them, and sent us a very threatening letter, and which is actually enough to disbar a lawyer for doing that kind of thing. Just threatening us left and right, calling us all kinds of names, telling us we are doing things for the wrong reasons, making money off the deaths of people, and telling us that we had to take down the website, take the movie back from anyone we sold it to, make sure the copy is destroyed, remove every copy from the Internet, which is completely impossible.
Then he reveals how they decided to deceive the Naudet brothers, and got all excited when the nutjobs at the Loose Change Forum start threatening the lawyers (previously discussed here):
So what we did, we decided that we would make these people think we are going to comply, make these people think that we are going to go ahead and shut down. We took our website down, put up the lawsuit. We didn’t even put up their contact information, people went out and found it, put up their pictures, and their phone numbers, and had people call them. They called us and begged us to take this off of our site because they couldn’t handle the amounts of threats they were getting. And I said if you can’t handle it, take down the suit. (laughter) They actually haven’t come across and sued us yet, they did send us the first initially threatening letter.Later, when asked what wars he served in, he replies:
Uhh, I was in the initial invasion of Afghanistan. I flew into Khandahar Airfield, took over Khandahar Airfield with the Rangers, and my unit, which was the 187th Rakkasans, the 101st Airborne. I came back, I did a 6 month short tour.Uhh, no. You were not in the "initial invasion of Afghanistan". The initial invasion of Afghanistan was mostly conducted by the 5th Special Forces Group, with some support from the 10th Mountain Division, and the Marines. When Kabul fell on November 13th, 2001, you were still in training. The very first units of the 187 didn't get to Afghanistan until January 2002, some didn't get there until April.
Hey, it is great that you served, but be honest about it.
