LTC Guy Razer, Veteran for 9/11 Truth?

As a veteran myself, one of the things that really peeves me is people who pretend to be one in order to further their own political agendas, witness Jesse MacBeth and Lauro Chavez. At the same time though, due to the seriousness of the charge, I am reluctant to accuse anyone of not being a veteran, unless I am relatively sure I have my facts in order. All I will say in this case is, it is really suspicious.

One of the recent darlings of the 9/11 truth movement has been retired Lieutenant Colonel Guy Razer, who claims to be a former Air Force fighter pilot. As has been pointed out in a thread on the JREF forum, his all too convenient name aside, he has absolutely nothing to back up his claim, and in interviews has given no impression that he has any knowledge specific to someone with a long distinguished career as a fighter pilot. There is no Internet-available information on him, other than his Myspace page, with the nomenclature Supereagle69, which appears more to have been created by a teenager with Top Gun fantasies than a 20 year veteran of the Air Force.

As I have mentioned before, I am on the mailing list for the ironically named Veterans for 9/11 Truth, whose active members are mostly non-veterans with serious issues with the truth. Mr. Razer is also a member, and posts regularly to the list although his Yahoo e-mail account actually reads "Bill Jenkins". None of the other members have ever bothered to question his credentials, or why his e-mail does not match his name, but then again this is the organization which still proudly lists Lauro Chavez as a member.

In any case, I received this rather bizarre e-mail from him on the mailing list:

I AM HAVING SIGNIFICANT DIFFICULTIES KEEPING IN THE TRUTH MOVEMENT!!!!!


VETERANS AND TRUTHERS,

I AM IN A DIFFICULT SITUATION. I HAVE BEEN MADE TO LEAVE 3 MIITARY FACILITIES SINCE MAY 10TH. THE LAST ONE, VANDENBERG AFB, I WAS FORCED TO LEAVE THE NIGHT BEFORE I WAS TO TAKE PICTURES OF A FORCED LABOR CAMP ON THAT BASE. ITS EXISITENCE [sic] WAS CONFIRMED BY AN ACTIVE DUTY OFFICER THERE. MY COMPUTER, CAMERA AND PHONE CHARGER WERE ALL STOLEN, BEFORE I COULD GET BACK TO PROTECT
THEM.
I HAVE BEEN FIGHTING FOR TRUTH FOR A LONG TIME NOW, LIVING IN A TENT, AND NOW I DON'T EVEN HAVE THE FUNDS FOR THAT! UNTIL JULY 1ST I DO NOT EVEN HAVE THE COMM CAPABILITY TO KEEP UP MY WEBSITE: www.myspace.com/supereagle69

THIS COUNTRY IS GOING DOWN THE TUBES AND OUR WORD IS HAVING A DIFFICULT TIME KEEPING UP WITH THE ABILITIES OF THE ELITES TO SQUELCH IT!
I CAN NOT GET WORK, EVEN THOUGH I WILL DO JUST ABOUT ANYTHING TO EARN ENOUGH MONEY TO EAT....IT SEEMS THAT ILLEGALS HAVE THE ABUNDANCE OF LABOR POSITIONS IN THE SOUTHWEAST [sic] AND ARE NOT GOING TO GIVE THAT EMPLOYMENT UP.
I HAVE FIXED SAFETY ISSUES ON ALL 3 BASES THAT I HAVE BEEN REMOVED FROM...I TRULY FEEL IT MAY BE MY STANCE FOR THE TRUTH THAT HAS PUT ME IN THIS SITUATION...BUT AS SOON AS I AM ABLE TO PHYSICALLY SURVIVE WITH FOOD, SHELTER, AND COMMUNICATIONS, I WILL BE BACK IN THE FIGHT BECAUSE IT IS WAY TOO IMPORTANT NOT TO BE!!!!!!

GUY S RAZER, LTCOL, USAF (RET.)
PS JUST WATCHED A GREQAT [sic] MOVIE ON HBO ALONG THE LINES OF SCHINDLER'S LIST CALLE [sic] "THE GREY ZONE"



Unless he has some serious mental health issues, or is just being weirdly sarcastic, this story makes no sense whatsoever. First of all, how does a retired O-5 end up so poor that he is living in a tent? The base pay for an active duty LTC with 20 years in, begins at $7,158 a month, and that is before any allowances such as flight pay, hazardous duty pay, separation pay, housing allowances etc. I am a reservist, so I am not extraordinarily familiar with the active duty retirement system, which varies depending on when you started your service, when you retire, and how many years you stay in, but to the best of my knowledge the least he could have retired with would be 40% of his base pay, or $2832 a month, and most likely he would get more than that.

And yet this guy cannot even afford to live in a tent or manage to pay for Internet access to maintain his free Myspace account? But he can afford HBO! Not surprisingly, not a single person on the mailing list has questioned his story in the least.
