'Forsake the Troops' web site shut down.

Well, it looks like Michael Crook has pulled the plug on his Forsake the Troops web site. It seems it wasn't up for more than two weeks. The claim he's making is that it was pulled because he was allegedly violating the terms of serviceā€”never mind that he was only answerable to himself. He took himself off, in other words.

Now he's looking to sell the domain name to the highest bidder. What a cynical bastard. Stupid, too.

I'm grateful to all who held Crook's feet to the fire. Others who wouldn't let up on the guy are Michelle Malkin and Conservative Friends. Obviously, those sites and mine don't agree on a whole lot, but in this case, we do, and I want to give props to them for fighting the good fight and doing good work to help bring down Michael Crook's latest fraud. The price of liberty is eternal vigilance, of course. Eternal vigilance, and lots of disagreement. Good work, and good riddance to Crook.

According to forsakethetroops. info

On Monday evening, the webmaster of Forsake The Troops was brutally assaulted by two men, thought to be members of the military, in response to their opinions about this website. Mr. Crook had been the target of numerous death threats and trespassers at his residence. All of these threats were saved and have been turned over to the authorities.
UPDATE:

At 6:19pm Eastern time, Michael Crook died of his injuries, after being rushed by ambulance to the leading hospital in the area for head trauma. The two men who allegedly assaulted him are currently in the custody of police. Mr. Crook died with his wife and infant daughter present.

It is therefore the decision of his family, and associates that Forsake The Troops goes offline, to prevent further incidents of violence and threats against his family. Therefore, this domain will permanantly go offline at around 5pm Eastern time, on Tuesday, May 17th, 2005.

Comments, and well-wishes may be addressed to noc@smishosting.com. Media inquiries (no interviews with family at this time), or sincere inquiries from well-meaning people may be directed to (315) 558-4372.

Leave a voice mail message and your call will be returned by our media representative. The family requests privacy at this time.
