Yesterday's post HOW TO SPOT A FAKE VETERAN generated a LOT of interest and gave me my largest hit count in months. It seems the Walrus of Worthlessness is a little more than your average garden-variety poseur.
To hotel and restaurant owners and staff, and other merchants: if you encounter this individual, avoid confrontation with Clark Williams - do what you've got to do to stall him (situation dictating) then contact law enforcement as soon as possible - the FBI apparently has an interest in Clark William's activities.
Amongst emails received concerning this piece of sh*t was a disturbing transmission from an investigator working with local law enforcement - name & jurisdiction withheld - on a possible case regarding Clark, who urged me to contact the FBI.
After I replied that I was merely re-transmitting the original report posted on the GeorgiaPacking comments board, I did a little homework.
Gizmo did a good job of getting front and side profile shots of this heffalumpagus largus.
Clark Williams is an accomplished con artist, active as far back as 1996; in the wake of the TWA Flight 800 disaster this imposter directed air traffic for 2 1/2 days at the Coast Guard Complex in East Moriches (Long Island), New York.
Williams was present at the 2002 bridge collapse disaster on the Arkansas River in eastern Oklahoma. After "taking charge", involving himself in recovery efforts and muddling with the investigation, Williams left town without paying a $900 bill for eight motel rooms which he charged to the U.S. government; quite an accomplishment for a guy with no official military ID - who knows what kind of plastic he's throwing around.
During this same time period, Williams also convinced a car dealership in Searcy, Arkansas to give him a pickup truck after identifying himself as a Special Forces captain and saying he needed a truck to transport supplies to the bridge site. He left with a red pickup worth $10,600. Employee Mike Milligan said the man's manner was very convincing.
Can somebody (discreetly) run those plates and let us know what kind of car Phony Baloney is tooling around in?
AND he has a rap sheet; Clark Williams is a convicted felon - five years for impersonating a U.S. officer - an unusually severe sentence. This goes to show how seriously the Federal government regarded this individual's activities while interfering with the recovery operations and official investigation of the 2002 bridge collapse. Complicating factors in this misadventure included attempting to cross into Canada in a stolen vehicle with a firearm in the back seat; he was charged in Ontario, Canada with fraud, theft, weapons and immigration charges.
Prior convictions include a three-year prison term for theft of services and passing bad checks.
Williams' delusions of granduer go beyond trying to talk up chicks with phony war stories. At some point he apparently reported to the Russian Embassy that he was part of a plot of US government black operators to assassinate the Russian President. Williams has claimed he hears voices, memory loss, and hints at some sort of "mind control" activity to cover "black ops" to explain his total failure to remember calling the Russian Embassy.
Regarding his penchant for wearing military fatigues, Williams has claimed "they're comfortable, and they attract women." That MIGHT have worked for him ten or fifteen years ago before his sidebar career as a sock puppet in the federal correctional system - but nowadays even baggy DCUs can't hide that gi-NORmous dunlap of his.
Special Forces officers don't wear the unit crest on their beret, they wear officer rank there. Also, the "combat patch" (right shoulder) does not include the Special Forces tab - last time I looked they weren't conducting the "Q" course in combat zones - and a double star on a CIB would indicate service in Vietnam, Gulf War I and the current GWOT.
A confused individual like this can be unpredictable and potentially dangerous; especially if he senses the "end of the road" is approaching for his career of deception; i.e. the guy is getting too old and too fat too pull off the Special Forces officer act. Unless you are a seasoned combat vet with a sharp eye and quick hands, I strongly urge any and all persons to AVOID putting this guy on the spot.
I would LOVE nothing more than a STORMBRINGER post featuring this piece of sh*t in handcuffs on his way to the Big House for dishonoring the uniform and reputation of United States Army Special Forces.
