Among other things, he's made false accusations of assault, negligent homicide and conspiracy to commit murder. He's named names, ranks, locations, email addresses etc of personnel in the unit with which he was embedded.Any or all of the above would be a plausible explanation of why Michael Yon's press status was revoked. I can't comment on the facebook stuff as I don't follow Yon on facebook.
That is why he's persona non grata. Might want to fact check your writing before clicking, "post".
However, as far as assault, negligent homicide and conspiracy to commit murder goes, it is only a false accusation if there is no truth behind it. I knew the Company Commander who was in charge of the Cav Troop that contained the "Kill Squad", members of which are on trial at Fort Lewis. He had no idea what was going on in his troop because of the vast distance between platoon outposts that he had to cover.
I know that SF personnel have killed people simply for having a cell phone. I know that sometimes SF will come in, kill a few people, maybe women and children, then call up the land owning unit and say "fix this, bye" and leave. I know that SF night raids are the number one complaint I receive from the
Afghan Security Forces and GiRoA. So, pardon me for not being the Army's big cheerleader, but every single one of those "false accusations" has a high probability of actually having some truth to it, based on my knowledge and experience. Enough to convict? That is a different question.
Fayette'Girl should read the book "Soldier" by LTC Tony Herbert. In it he talks about some of the things he saw that were swept under the rug. This isn't some "Winter Soldier" BS either, this was a highly decorated American Hero who had nothing to gain and everything to lose by coming forward. Remember the pilot who interceded at Mai Lai? Yeah that did GREAT things for his career.
Now, is Yon a bit narcissistic? I don't know, could be. Normal people don't become journalists. Then again normal people don't become Soldiers so I might not be a good one to judge.
