Fox News 'Intelligence Expert' Lied About Working for the CIA : snopes.com

Fox News 'Intelligence Expert' Lied About Working for the CIA : snopes.com

Wayne Simmons, who appeared as a guest on Fox News claiming to be an ex-CIA employee, has been sentenced to 33 months in prison on fraud charges. Additionally, the 62-year-old Simmons was ordered by U.S. District Court Judge Thomas Selby Ellis III to serve three years of supervised release, forfeit two firearms and $175,612 in criminal proceeds, and pay restitution to his victims.

Last year, the Justice Department accused him of falsifying his experience as a former "Outside Paramilitary Special Operation Officer" who served in the CIA between 1973 and 2000. He put his fabricated background to use on Fox News, where he appeared as a recurring guest who regularly criticized the Obama administration's handling of the 2012 attack on the American diplomat compound in Benghazi, Libya.

  Chances are, your fright wing friends who rely on FOX Spews will never hear of this story.
