Default 'Deadliest Warrior' Host Quits Over Green Beret Claim

What a douche



The host of the show "Deadliest Warrior" -- a TV series that pits warriors of different eras against each other -- has resigned over lying about his purported Green Beret background.
Robert Daly, a former imagery specialist assigned to an intelligence unit at the Presidio in Monterey, Calif., claimed online in May to "having been in the Special Forces."

In an Oct. 11 mea culpa to ProfessionalSoldiers.com, a website run by a former Special Forces master sergeant, Daly said he served as an intelligence analyst for the 12th Special Forces Group from 1991 to 1994, but was not a Green Beret.



"While I wore the [Green Beret] as part of my uniform, I utterly regret that I have misrepresented my role by creating the impression that I was a 'Green Beret,'" Daly wrote. "I have nothing but the utmost respect for the Green Berets and my fellow servicemen, and I respectfully apologize to the Special Forces community."


In the same posting Daly said he was resigning as studio head of Pipeworks Software, which produces "Deadliest Warrior," and would no longer host the program. Pipeworks did not respond to Military.com's request for comment.


The new host for "Deadliest Warriors" will be Richard "Mack" Machowicz, a former Navy SEAL and current host of "Future Weapons," according to an announcement on Spike TV's website. Spike carries both shows as original programming.


The same web page also continues to refer to Daly as a "former Green Beret."
"Robert Daly had no doubt to the validly of his 'Green Beret' claims, neither did Professionalsoldiers.com," Hinton told Military.com. "There is no debate, no gray area. Being referred to as a 'Green Beret' is analogous to being pregnant. You either are or you are not."


Daly is not the first veteran who served in a Special Forces unit to later promote himself as a Green Beret. In Philadelphia, city council candidate David Oh claimed in campaign literature to having been a Green Beret.
Oh ended up making an online apology to the Special Forces community via the website Socnet.com.


Hinton has become the bane of phony Green Berets and Navy SEALs, exposing numerous fakes by getting their publicly available records through Freedom of Information Act requests and using his own network in the Special Forces.


In August Hinton testified before a Maryland judge prior to the sentencing of William G. "Bill" Hillar, who for years passed himself off as a former Special Forces colonel and expert in international sex trafficking.



Hillar taught classes on the subjects at the Monterey Institute of International Studies, and conducted paid lectures to law enforcement groups and agencies. Among his victims was the FBI.
Hillar was sentenced to 21 months in jail for wire fraud after admitting that an email he sent to the University of Oregon to apply for work included fraudulent information about his military background and experience.


"All I do is expose them," Hinton said. "Ninety-nine percent of the time someone else 'finds' them and then asks that poser questions."
Once a skeptic asks "Is this guy for real?" he said, "That's the last words for a poseur."

That's a good way to get your ass kicked by a bunch of Green Berets.

This is like when Jesse Ventura lied about being an actor.

Our courts have ruled that laws against "stolen honor" are invalid on constitutional grounds. They say that, for example, you can claim anything you want and wear medals you didn't earn - Purple Heart, Bronze Star, Silver Star, etc - because that is protected speech.

What do you all think of that?

I think it stinks.

It stinks. I don't think it should be a crime unless you are trying to benefit from it in any other way than social prestige though. I think this guy learned his lesson looking like a total idiot.
