An Irregular Murder Mystery?
Late last night, a person using the name Sgt. Cambell left the following message at one of our recent article about the huge military drain resulting from right wing anti-gay hatred:
“The whole â€œdont ask, dont tellâ€ is actually good for these reasons;
1) Tradition, The millitary is know for being real men, not queers.
2) Asking/Telling is unnecesay, it only takes concentration away from the things that matter, like operating a 50 million dollar plane.
3) Queers are only liked by other queers, metros, or coloset curiousâ€™s.
5)Im sick of hearing people bitch. Its not discriminating agaisnt them, its just saying dont ask, and dont tell. So in a way, its actually protecting them. Back when I was in basic, there were 3 queers. They all asked and told. So every other night, we would blanket party them. Meaning beat the living shit out of them until they passed out from pain. If they would only shut the hell up about cock. Later on, while in iraq, my best friend was asked to give another soldier head. Lets just say that man went home from â€œfriendly fireâ€ while on a street sweep. He is currently 6 feet under the dirt in arlington. My friend talks about it like its a funny thing. So now do you see how it is actually good.
7)not sure if i said it yet, quit bitchiing”
One of our readers, Ralph, pointed out that, if what this person wrote is true, then he’s guilty of assault and murder – or, at least, guilty of helping to cover up a murder. But, is it true? Is this person really a sergeant in the U.S. military who was involed in the murder of a fellow soldier in the battlefield just for being gay?
Maybe. Maybe not. What this person doesn’t know is that we who edit Irregular Times can see some details about where people who comment are coming from – their IP address, for example. The IP address Sgt. Cambell used last night was 22.214.171.124 Using an IP WHOIS search, I found the following information about this IP address:
SBC Internet Services SBCIS-SIS80 (NET-69-208-0-0-1)
126.96.36.199 – 188.8.131.52
PPPoX Pool – rback6.dytnoh SBCIS-062105125333 (NET-69-223-48-0-1)
184.108.40.206 – 220.127.116.11
Well, that doesn’t tell us much, other than that this guy (or girl) is a customer of SBC, or was using the computer of someone who was. Of course, if a criminal investigation were launched, SBC would probably be able to reveal much more information than that.
However, there is reason to believe that this person is not a murderer. One reason? He’s a proven liar. Also last night, at an article about allegations by Seymour Hersh that the US government and the Israeli government planned bombing of Lebanon before any actual provocation by kidnapping of Israeli soldiers took place, the same person who used the name Sgt Cambell also used the names Teranis and Allan Bilondi to write a comment complaining that we liberals shouldn’t criticize the government. The thing this person didn’t understand is that we have a moderated commenting system, in order to filter out spam, and so this person wrote the same message under two names, and then had one of the pseudonyms agree with himself. This morning, all of those messages were approved and put online.
Oh, how embarrassing for our self-professed anti-gay murderer.
The thing is that this person doesn’t just claim to be a murderer. He also claims to be a professor in “astro-physics”. Writing as Tyler Keys in a comment on an article in our diaries section about a disaster scenario involving a black hole engulfing the Earth, this person claims to “have tought molecular energy course for 17 years at a well-known college”. Uh huh.
I think what we’ve got here is an angry young person who embraces all kinds of right wing hatred, and is afraid to let his or her true self be seen. My, what a fantasy world this person has created, being a violent sergeant in the military and a physics professor at the same time. It’s a fun trip. Thanks, Allan Teranis Keys.
Of course, there is the off chance that this person actually is a murderer, or involved in the cover-up of a murder. If you happen to know anything about this person and any real criminal activity, call the police.
