Is Michael Crook dead?

Maybe from the neck up. Apparently, reports of his death have been greatly exaggerated. A report released on May 17 stated that Crook was assaulted by two men, purportedly members of the military. Crook was said to have died of head trauma, which was caused by these two men, who traumatized his head right in front of his wife and infant daughter. The fake wind-up site that Crook ran was called Forsake the Troops, which seems to have been designed to suggest that those who oppose Bush's Iraq War do so not because they think we shouldn't have invaded but because we simply hate the military. I originally wrote about Mr. Crook back in February.

The source of this information was Crook's own web site. Crook's site was registered in his name in Syracuse, New York, and a note said that well-wishers may email at, or phone at (315) 558-4372. That telephone number does trace to Syracuse, New York; specifically to a cell phone. I have not called it, but 558 is a cell phone exchange in the 315 area code. No other source corroborates the murder of Michael Crook, though The Marine Corps Times has a couple of things to say about it—most interestingly that the Syracuse Police, whom Crook's website says have his killers in custody, say that no murder happened that night.

So there you have it: white supremacist Michael Crook made a fake web site about a fake anti-military movement, and now he seems to have faked his own death. The worst part about all this is that people are still falling for it. So many comments I've read about Michael Crook (or whatever his real name may be) have more to do with indignant offense taken at what his site said than about the apparent fakeness of it. Hordes of suckers continue to fall for Michael Crook's hoax, giving attention to this loon, and worse, serving to squelch the discussion that we Americans need to have about what we're doing in Iraq.

Mission accomplished, Mr. Crook?

I've stopped giving him the attention he so desperately craves. I mentioned this fake death notice in passing, but refused to even link to it. Maybe if we ignore him, he'll eventually go away.

I served in Iraq, and
I could not believe all the attention this maggot got. The Marines should have taken the credit for his death I would have felt better about the whole thing. He needs to pack his shit and move to a country that would better suit him. What an embarrassment to the Nation. Sleep well tonight under the blanket of freedom that so many have paid for with the ultimate sacrifice. You are a total "Fuck" Michael Crook.

This man should be shot as a message to all anti-americans. Or maybe he should be dropped off in iraq and let the soldiers have him. He is a waste of oxygen, and is not worthy to live in this wonderful country!!!!!

i just saw the blasting Crook got from Hannity on fox.. its amazing to see him crumble in the face of opposition.. good thing he isnt fighting for our country (even tho at least he'd be one of the first to go :P).. i never really knew of his site beforehand, but the simple fact that an American citizen can desire to "Forsake Our Troops" astounds me. i can see him being anti-war or anti-government, but even if you're a pacifist, you need to realize that war is essential at times.. (of course i dont completely agree with the Iraq "war", but i would never want to 'forsake' those who defend this country!)

/oh well, thats enough randomness from strangers..

Defend your country??? Hahaha. Yeah right, Saddam would have invaded the USA within the next year, right! It's unbelievable that there are still people beliving in a known lie. However, if that guy wouldn't have been a faker, he'd actually attack the interviewer on his own grounds: the blanket of freedom. How long will it take for the majority of Americans to realize that it is this fanatism that makes vast parts of the world dislike or even hate the U.S. Wake up America.

I may not be American (I'm British) and I may hate Bush, and I may think the war in Iraq is a crock of shit but I still think Micaehl Crook is a goddamn arsehole who deserves nothing more to be thrown off the highest building in the world with a camera strapped to his chest beaming a live broadcast to the world so we can watch the little shit-stain terror ridden face until he hits the ground and dies. Then we can all watch the slow motion replay.

Man, did I make enough typos in my last comment or what?

To the anonymous turd above Lothar Hex: You may not agree with going to war against Iraq, and I understand your supposed reasons, but think on this.... If we had rolled over and 'played dead' after 9-11, it would have become open season on Americans for anyone with the slightest beef against us. And the Iraq thing is an extension of that, because the Saddam govt. was pumping alot of money into arab terrorist organizations. I even think that we should, at the least, strongarm Saudi Arabia and Iran because thier govts. also dump money to the terrorism network. So before you say we shouldn't be in Iraq/Afghanistan, ask an Iraqi/Afghani how freedom feels, or ask a terrorism victim's relatives how they feel about it.

Michael Crook is just like a bad case of Herpes, he will not go away or be quiet. His death should have never been made up, it should have been as true as the day is long!

if i ever see that ass hole i'm gonna put him 6 feet under.
the military if anything in under paid. i'm only making $462 every 2 weeks. with all the bills we have to pay there is no way we can keep up. the only good thing we get outta it is the health benefits.and that aint shit.
we chose to defend our country so that everyone could be free, not so that some dried up cum stain can mock us and celebrates when we die!!!!
everyone i know is outrage at everything he's said. no one in thier right mind has any right to slam the military!!!!

if he's not dead now he will be in 2 years after i get out!!! i will hunt him down andf slowly kill him!!!

let this be his warning

I guess these posts from military guys proves that the military does not protect EVERY citizen the right to freedom of speech.... Only the speech that is cleared thru military and is in agreement with the military. Thanks for proving Hannity wrong. Disappointed in the soldiers here and my brother is in the service and my nephew. So do not call me unamerican and threaten my life. Remember freedom of speech, the gift you soldiers gave to me.
