(What was left of ) The New Republic's reputation is now a smouldering ruin

Embed Matt Sanchez reports on the the conclusion of the military's official investigation regarding the (false) reports of Pvt. "Thomas Scott" Beauchamp; and it isn't pretty. First Stephen Glass, and now this?? A one-word sentence to TNR: Buh-bye! :

After a thorough investigation that lasted nearly a week the 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division has concluded that the allegations made by Private Thomas Scott Beauchamp, the "Baghdad Diarist", have been

"refuted by members of his platoon and proven to be false"

The official investigation the 4th IBCT Public Affairs Office qualified as "thorough and professional" concluded late August 1st. Officials would not speculate on the possibility of further action against Private Beauchamp, nor would they confirm his current whereabouts or status.
