The Fallacy of Yon (Part III – Conclusion)
This one will be quick and to the point. Talking about Michael Yon seriously makes me want to hurl. So, I’m going to address the OPSEC issue. He asked me to prove where I think he’s violated OPSEC and here it is in the nutshell of ONE post:
Need I go any further? This is proof enough that the military cannot trust Michael Yon with an embed. He is a reckless “reporter” who posts whatever will garner readers without checking facts or weighing whether or not that information will harm troops. David Sneakers proved that!
I was going to post other evidence, but in light of the fact that I may need it in a legal case, I picked the most damaging bit of evidence. With this post, Michael Yon has no basis for any fake allegations of libel or slander against me.
I, however, have numerous. Why? Because unlike Michael Yon, i’m not a public figure and Yon has made numerous libelous claims that are void of fact. He has taken actions that, if true, could result in directly affecting my way of life. He has never presented evidence that I’m insane while labeling me such. He has never presented evidence that I’m dangerous to anyone, while labeling me such. He has never presented evidence as to why I should be allowed to carry a weapon, while writing such. He has never provided evidence that I have lied about my military accomplishments while proclaiming as much. Michael Yon has a lot to answer for. Because he has too much to lose by telling the truth about me, I doubt he ever will though.
And with that, I wash my hands of him provided he ceases with his indefensible attacks.
