The other day, in DuPont Circle at the Shoe Bush protest, the day before the Inauguration, I saw Adam Kokesh, poster child for everything that’s wrong with IVAW, threaten that he was throwing a combat boot at the 30-foot blow-up doll of George Bush on that day, but that he was saving the other boot for Obama. The threat to Obama comes at the end of this six minute video;
Not waiting for Obama to screw up, Kokesh named Obama a potential war criminal on his website;
But the whole reason I video’d Kokesh was to catch him calling himself “Sergeant Kokesh”. To his credit, he has stopped that. Below is Kokesh’s DD214 which proves what I’ve been saying the last few years; he’s not a sergeant.
So that puts that issue to rest.
Along with his DD214, the Records Center sent the evidence against Kokesh that the Marine Corps used to downgrade his discharge at the hearing he was forced to attend when he was trolling the National Mall in his uniform pretending to be on patrol in Iraq (not that he ever went on patrol in Iraq). I found the evidence to be quite satisfying since it was an article in the Washington Post with pictures – the same article I used to prove his guilt.
I’m guessing the article is included with his records so that if he ever tries to upgrade his discharge, the evidence for the denial still exists.
