The internet continues to spew proof that John Giduck clearly lied about his arrival in Beslan.

Sometime prior to September 2006, John Giduck  began telling people that he arrived in Beslan school while the siege was ongoing. There is no shortage of evidence that John Giduck originally claimed to have arrived “immediately after the final assault” on the school which occurred on 3 Sept 2004.

Of course, John Giduck now denies EVER having made such a statement.  He did so in a 7 May 2012 post on his mouthpiece blog.  Here is what he says:

As I had not been at Beslan during the siege and battle (claims I have never made)

- John Giduck, blog post dated 7 May 2012  https://www.google.com/search?q=%E2%80%A6teacher%2C+historian%2C+and+author+John+Giduck.+Explains+the+author%2C+%E2%80%9CI+was+there%3B+I+arrived+when+mopping+up+operations+were+taking+place+and+then+again+three+more+times+over+the+next+months+to+gather+more+information.%E2%80%9C+jcpn&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a#q=-thetruthaboutsocnetlies+%22As+I+had+not+been+at+Beslan+during+the+siege+and+battle+%28claims+I+have+never+made%29%22&rls=org.mozilla:en-US%3Aofficial&safe=off

Unfortunately, the internet has at least one very clear statement by John Giduck himself in which he claimed to be present during “mopping up” combat operations.

by teacher, historian, and author John Giduck. Explains the author, “I was there; I arrived when mopping up operations were taking place…”

- John Giduck, Google links to a paysite document but the Google captured quote is clear for the viewing at https://www.google.com/search?q=%E2%80%A6teacher%2C+historian%2C+and+author+John+Giduck.+Explains+the+author%2C+%E2%80%9CI+was+there%3B+I+arrived+when+mopping+up+operations+were+taking+place+and+then+again+three+more+times+over+the+next+months+to+gather+more+information.%E2%80%9C+jcpn&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&aq=t&rls=org.mozilla:en-US:official&client=firefox-a#q=+-%22thetruthaboutsocnetlies%22++%22teacher%2C+historian%2C+and+author+John+Giduck%22.&rls=org.mozilla:en-US%3Aofficial&safe=off

After uncomfortable questions were raised about john Giduck’s travel timeline which included a need for a visa and an extremely unfavorable time difference to make the final assault,  John Giduck changed his arrival in Beslan to Sunday, 5 September 2004.

John Giduck and Yuri Ferdigalov were in the School at Beslan on Sept 5.

- 5 May 2012 post on John Giduck’s mouthpiece on a blog post prefaced that it was authorized by John Giduck himself.

So, clearly, John Giduck was falsely telling people that he was at Beslan when he wasn’t. Him…in his own words.

Now, if for whatever reason you still believe that John Giduck could be telling the truth, here is how John Giduck describes the state of the school upon his arrival in a September 2006 interview:

At Beslan, when I first entered the school, I could barely negotiate it. The school was a warren of twisted wreckage, boulders of building material, and blown out floors. Moving through it was like leaping from one unsteady, slippery rock in the middle of a rushing stream to the next.

In Beslan, you could not have moved 15 feet in any direction without snagging exposed laces on something and falling flat on your face, maybe onto a booby trap.

- John Giduck, http://www.policemag.com/channel/swat/articles/2006/09/responding-to-school-sieges/page/3.aspx

remember that this description was published before John Giduck had revised his arrival date to Sunday, 5 September. This description contrasts markedly with photos of the school from Sunday, 5 September 2004 as demonstrated below:

giduck_gym

http://www.smh.com.au/articles/2004/09/06/1094322719184.html

The article from which this photo was taken is dated 6 September 2004 meaning that the only “sunday” as mentioned in the caption is 5 September 2004.  We know from newspaper articles from the time that the bodies had been removed and the rubble was bull dozed on 4 september 2004….one day before John Giduck’s arrival.   Note that there is no rubble, “twisted wreckage” or any of the other things that John Giduck falsely claimed….

Booby traps?  Every article that we have found from the time period says that residents were allowed in the school on 4 September.

Saturday September 4

1800 [6pm]: Authorities allow Beslan residents into the husk that was once Middle School No 1 to let people see for themselves what remained.

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2004/sep/06/schoolsworldwide.chechnya

So, if John “danger mouse” Giduck did arrive on 5 Sept 2004 (against all logic and probability), he was about in as much danger as the old lady, the lady in heels, and the other bystanders in the photo.  To use another word, “none”….

These false and misleading claims by John Giduck cast serious doubt on the academic integrity of his book, Terror At Beslan. The book is bad enough with the large number of factual inaccuracies. In short, John Giduck wasn’t there in early september and hasn’t even provided proof that he was actually at the school within the first two weeks of September 2004 at all.  What is also odd is that despite claims in the book to have spent days in that tiny school “taking photos and measurements” as John Giduck claims on pg 34 of his book, there isn’t a single photo of John Giduck or his sidekick in any of gazillion photos of the aftermath of Beslan.

The evidence supports this blog.  John Giduck appears to have been lying all along….

As with most john Giduck supporters, note that they want to sell you something associated with john Giduck.  I wonder if Degrata Tactical is as willing to support John Giduck in 2013 after he won the recent Stolen Valor championship against a field of over 60 phony military fakers.

My opinion is that you should seriously reconsider giving any money to idiots that can’t or don’t want to believe the mountain of evidence that clearly shows that John Giduck is anything but the real deal.  I’d worry more that these guys don’t seem to have the expertise to quickly discern real from fake but want to train you.

Let’s give John Giduck an award that he finally earned

It’s funny how John Giduck has turned into the antithesis of everything that he wrote about in his book, The Green Beret in You: Living with Total Commitment to Family, Career, Sports and Life .

Here is the summary of the book from Amazon

The Green Beret in You is look at the way Green Berets live there lives through honor, integrity, and discipline. Our organization feels that American men, and men all over the world, could benefit from reading this book. The majority of American men have lost their warriorship and it is time they are reminded of the duties and responsibilities that come with being a man. The modern man has become characterized by doing the easy thing and not the right thing. This problem has become a plague on American society and our enemies all over the world know this. This book examines the mentality of men in our special operations units and the benefits of living your life as they do. This same mind set is not totally absent in our society but it is becoming more and more rare. Warriors are still among us and these are the people that the average citizen runs to in a time of crisis.

- John Giduck has taken the approach of being the victim rather than being a man.  We know this from his blog and from statements that his few remaining supporters

- John Giduck neglected to realize that the “yes men” lapdog members of SOF and law enforcement that surround him are not representative of those communities.  For a guy that supposedly examined the “mentality of men in our special operations units”, john Giduck didn’t take much away from the time spent.

You see, it’s clear that John Giduck thought that we tire by now, forget, or defocus.  But we haven’t…

- This blog has published 156 posts about John Giduck and the usual suspects that surround him including Archangel Group co-founder John Andy Anderson, fellow co-conspirator Chester PA Police Commissioner Joseph Bail, Dave “I teach about killing but never killed nobody” Grossman, and others. Hundreds of thousands of readers have learned about John Giduck’s lies and misdeeds through this blog.

- John Giduck has acquired whole new audiences and the worst kind of fame as a finalist in the TAH 2013 Stolen Valor Tournament.  Regardless of John Giduck wins or not, his misdeeds have been validated by countless others that have voted for him or been surprised by his advance to the finals of the tournament.  The 2013 tournament has been recognized as having the toughest field in years.

- John Giduck has turned himself into a laughingstock with his changes in stories.  You see, like most lies, changing one’s stories highlights the lies that can’t be changed. For instance, John Giduck’s initial position of arriving in Russia while the Beslan siege was ongoing made him look absolutely ridiculous…so John Giduck changed his story.  The problem is that his book still had the original lies and he couldn’t change those.

- This blog has a lot of information that still hasn’t been published about John Giduck, Andy Anderson, and Joe Bail.  Some are waiting for tangible documentation, others have been passed to investigators, and others we are holding back…just in case.

Bottom line: We aren’t done here and won’t be until John Giduck does all the following personally (not through a third party)

- Acknowledges that he wasn’t in Beslan during the siege or on 5 September 2004,

- Provides proof of his actual arrival date in Beslan

- Takes ownership for and issues an apology for his Special forces legend and Ranger claims

- Issues an apology to those that have been impacted by his frivolous lawsuit

- That the original police report is true and there never have been threats against him or his family

- Ackowledges that all of his non-martial arts operational “training” that John Giduck claims was the result of short duration commercial military adventure style camps in Russia

If John Giduck wants this to end, he has the roadmap to doing so above (for this blog at least). He could always post a youtube video that covers the above points.  No matter what, John Giduck will need to do the right thing for once for this to end. I’m not holding my breath and will continue the mission.

Thanks for your readership and support.

 sweet16

This year’s 64 military fakers has been recognized as having some of the toughest competition in years.

Trapper Frank Says:
August 2nd, 2013 at 10:56 am
This years field was an especially strong one. In any other year, Ken Crotchrot would have won in a walk. At this point, it is still anybodies ballgame.

Hondo Says:
August 2nd, 2013 at 5:09 pm
Hell, 6 of the 8 quarterfinalists (Tesla, Giduck, Lewis, Ladner, Crocheron, Monkress) would IMO have likely taken last year’s tourney – and a 7th (Hamilton) might have made a deep run but come up short. This was truly a “turd-studded” tourney.

For anyone who may be thinking that this blog is alone in its feelings about John Giduck, let’s look at some of the turds that Giduck has advanced beyond..

Tina Kerstan:  None of the below happened

“Tina was just returning from the front lines of the “Desert Storm” assault on Kuwait when the Iraqi missile struck. She and her commanding officer, Captain Richard Walker, had just parked about 60 feet from the front door of the ill-fated building and exited the vehicle when they heard a whistling sound. The missile crashed into the roof and exploded, demolishing the building and knocking them both to the ground. To Tina’s horror, she saw that Captain Walker had been cut in two by flying shrapnel; he died in her arms. Tina herself had been wounded, but she rushed into the ruined building three times to help wounded survivors escape before she lost consciousness and was Medevaced away from the carnage.”

Romeo Martinez

It’s entirely possible that Romeo Martinez was a Marine at one time, but I doubt very much that he was ever a lieutenant of Marines. Another possibility is that he may have swallowed whole a lieutenant, or there’s a lieutenant buried in one of his chin folds.

There’s not much I can say about this guy. He kind of looks like the mentally challenged love child of Oliver Willis and a koala bear. But there’s nothing funny about that.

Shane Ladner: He was in high school when his secret mission in Panama below could have happened

I was involved in a firefight in Panama City. My squad was on patrol and we were ambushed by Panamanian Defense Forces. We were under heavy fire and pinned down. I was engaging the enemy when I heard an explosion behind me. I felt an intense burning sensation on my back as well as excruciating pain in my abdomen…When I recovered from my wounds I served throughout Central and South America, Cuba and Africa.

That lie there would eventually result in his wife losing her leg when a train hit his float at a parade. Since his fake missions in Panama he’s also been to OIF and OEF, became a cop, got fired as a cop, got his lawyer to submit a faked DD214, and been featured on the news. This young lad has a hell of a fake career ahead of him. He could be one of the greats. He might be the stolen valor equivalent of Jim Plunkett.

Todd Michael Hamilton:

Todd was the President of the Shadow 6 Foundation. Some would assume that “Shadow” had some sort of special ops type feel to it, while the “6” would indicate that he was the commander. All that is true, if by “Shadow” you mean a network systems operator, and Specialists are now “6’s” in military parlance. Anyway, douchetool here hiked across Washington state with the tower of power on his shoulder (SF, Ranger and Airborne tabs) and then resorted to the lame “I did it to honor soldiers” excuse.

Danny Russell Crane: At least this guy had 4 more days of active duty time than the 58 days that John Giduck had

Say what you will about Danny Crane and his 62 days of Active Duty time, but the dude really knows how to doctor up a DD214. He’s the Forrest Gump of Shreveport, Louisiana. However, he’s also been sentenced to 7 1/2 years in jail since 2000 for things such as harassment, fraud, ID theft and more.

His most heinous crime might be the fact that he “stole” the story of the Marine who stood guard outside the hospital room of the dying young cancer patient, Cody Green. Of course, he inserted himself into the story, though he pretends to be a soldier.

Ken Crocheron:  Ken had a far bigger fan base than John Giduck…john Giduck is still in the tourney…

Colonel, Uncle Kenneth Crocheron is a FAKE. This week it was finally confirmed and proven that our former beloved family friend, Ken, has been deceiving us for the 10 yrs we’ve known him…..deceived many many more innocent family members and friends and co-workers over the last 40+ yrs. He IS NOT a Green Beret, IS NOT a COLONEL, or any other army officer. IS NOT honorable in any way, regardless of the GOOD DEEDS he may have done for our family, it was all under the guise of rescuing us and trying to impress us with his clout.

Chelle Lynne Anderson-Tesla: 

Chelle Lynne Anderson-Tesla is currently a major in the Civil Air Patrol in Virginia and assigned to HQ, VA Wing as Director of Aerospace Education. She got that job because she represented herself as combat-wounded Army Aviation Captain, and a UH-60 Blackhawk pilot. At one point she was claiming to be the CNO (Chief of Naval Operations). Well, either that or she couldn’t even spell NCO right. She claims that she earned a Purple Heart when her Blackhawk was shot down in Iraq and, of course, because of that incident she claims she suffers from TBI and PTS. Of course, she’s here on TAH, so you already know that none of that is true; as her records show, she’s never been to Iraq. She was a PFC Air Traffic Controller for about 13 months.

Punk’s story:

While conducting combat operations, insurgents launched a complex attack against the squad Lewis was in. During the ambush multiple rocket-propelled grenades (RPG’s) struck the patrol, causing Lewis several injuries. The wounds included Traumatic Brain Injury, dislocated jaw, nerve damage in his right arm, lower and upper spine damage, and short term memory loss.

John Giduck has been voted into the top 4 of over 60 entrants in the TAH 2013 Stolen Valor tourney.

http://thisainthell.us/blog/?p=36786

People are paying attention.  This monday, you’ll have the chance to vote John Giduck into the “Turd Two” finals.  Right now John Giduck is two votes from being named “Chump-ion” for 2013.  The outcome could be anyone’s to win.  As noted in the comments at the link, any of this year’s excrement 8 could have won in previous years and previous year winners might not have even advanced to this year’s fecal four. Monday’s voting is going to be exceptionally tight. We’ll need every vote to get John Giduck to his deserved spot in the tournament finals.

For me, this comment from the TAH blog sums up the reasons why John Giduck should be bestowed this honor and actually deserves.

Giduck is so much more than just suing SOF.

- Giduck trolled a dead cop’s wife at his funeral, acted as her defense attorney when she was accused, and then was screwing her in Jamaica on what her kids say was their father’s death benefits. Giduck had to flee to West Virginia as a result of this.

http://thetruthaboutsocnetlies.wordpress.com/2012/10/09/why-did-john-giduck-flee-to-west-virginia-in-1993/

- Giduck’s wife/girlfriend/hosebag/whatever holds a pretty serious security clearance and Giduck has bragged about bringing high level foreign intelligence officers over to his house. Worse yet, Giduck proudly associates with a Russian group that the Washington Times says bombed a US Embassy

http://thetruthaboutsocnetlies.wordpress.com/2012/05/19/john-giducks-ties-to-a-group-that-may-have-bombed-a-us-embassy/

- Giduck funneled money from a community corrections non-profit in Colorado (halfway house) to rebels in the Sudan and then had a “smoking gun” conversation captured by a fairly well known journalist in which Giduck provided defense advice to the rebel group…both in clear violation of international laws and US ITAR.

- Giduck lied in his book, Terror At Beslan, about being in Russia during the siege. He was actually in Colorado the entire time

http://thetruthaboutsocnetlies.wordpress.com/2013/05/17/john-giduck-beslan-author-speaker-trainer-liar/

- John Giduck appears to have violated the Pennsylvania State Ethics Act by paying what can only be described as a $20,000 honorarium to then Chester PA Dive Team Leader Joseph Bail in the form of a dive boat just weeks after Joe Bail finished a consulting gig for Archangel Group, a company owned by John Giduck. Joe Bail is now the Police Commissioner of Chester, PA and, per John Giduck’s website, contracts John Giduck as training manager for the police department.

There you have it. They even used evidence from this blog as a reference.   Please help vote for John Giduck starting this Monday, 29 July 2013.

John Giduck wants to be famous; let’s help him achieve this dubious honor.

In 2005, John Giduck warned us about something very important to him:

“however, law enforcement professionals must beware of some claiming to be Russian hand-to-hand experts. Few have had any substantial military training – with the exception of actual former Russian Spetsnaz commandos – or spent years living and training in that country. Over the years as the Russian System has become better known, I have come to realize that there are a large number of would-be practitioners who have reduced an excellent combat system to little more than graceful, choreographed movement that looks more like Chinese Wushu forms competitions, than it does the unarmed combat actually  trained and utilized by Russia’s elite warriors.”
