I wonder what, if anything at all, goes through their heads;
Hillar, who has claimed to be a retired Special Forces Colonel, told a wild tale of international intrigue in his popular one-credit workshops, claiming that his own 17-year old daughter was kidnapped by traffickers in Southeast Asia, and was killed by them. He has said that he personally tracked her abductors, and claimed that the 2008 Liam Neeson film, Taken, is based on his exploits.
In fact, the United States Army Special Operations Command has no record that William G. Hillar ever took part in special operations education and training, which are standard for special forces personnel.
Yeah, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice is based on my real life story, nimnil. How this dickweed got away with telling that story for five years is beyond me. Didn’t one student in all of those years roll their eyes a bit?
WOTN writes that I wrote about Hillar, but I don’t remember it, but thanks to WOTN for the link.
