Kathryn Cramer is looking into the case of Joseph Cafasso, lately a Fox News consultant, whose military career turns out to have been a good deal less glory-saturated than he has claimed.
He claimed he was a SEAL, among other things. I will never, to my dying day, understand why someone would falsely, in public, claim to have been a SEAL. All that does is guarantee that you’ll eventually have a lot of SEALs pissed off at you. I can only speak for myself, but if I live my life having never pissed off a member of the Special Forces, I’ll consider that a success.
Under the article is an email Cafasso sent to VeriSEAL, which is classic. Whatever brain lesions cause a person to run around claiming to totally be a Super Secret Special Forces Karate Master must also doom him to write like a sugar-shocked thirteen-year-old.
Needless to say, the word “sic” appears quite frequently in the posted email, though not nearly as frequently as it could.
Beneath Cafasso’s note is the reason you’re reading this, the response email from a member of the VeriSEAL staff to which this post’s title refers.
