Richard Strandlof, phony veteran
Another case of a phony veteran. Rick Duncan claimed he survived the 9/11 attacks on the Pentagon, that he survived a roadside bomb in Iraq, and that he had a metal plate in his head. None of it was true. Not even his name, which was really Richard Strandlof. He also says that he's not a pathological liar. But then, what else would a pathological liar say? link: CNN

And about this guy Doug Sterner who Anderson Cooper interviews second in the video: does anyone else think he sounds a little bit like Alan Abel?

I wonder if he attempted to get veteran's benefits during all this time. We had it happen at my hospital - it's a pretty serious crime.
