Army Major Forced to Leave His Fantasy World

Email Print

“A legendary Special Forces commander was quietly forced to leave the U.S. Army after he admitted to a love affair with a Washington Post war correspondent, who quit her job to secretly live with him for almost a year in one of the most dangerous combat outposts in Afghanistan.” The highly decorated Green Beret Jim Gant was relieved of his command. His commanders charged that he had “‘indulged in a self-created fantasy world’ of booze, pain pills and sex in a tribal village deep in Taliban and al Qaeda country with his ‘wife,’ journalist Ann Scott Tyson.” Sounds like something from the movie Apocalypse Now.
