Jesse MacBeth's War Stories: Plagiarized from TV's Lost?

Over at via Hot Air I followed the link to pretend-Ranger/Torturer/Genocidal Killer Jesse MacBeth's blog entry from March 24th, 2006., when suddenly it occured to me that his story seemed eerily familiar... in fact, it sounded EXACTLY like what American interrogators threatened Sayid with in Episode 38 of ABC's series, "Lost," entitled, "One of Them," which aired Wednesday, February 15, 2006.

I am not a huge Lost fan, so I don't remember chapter and verse of the episode, but the (run-on) sentence of Jesse's that really rang the bell for me was:

we would execute their youngest son or daughter befor them and asked them again and then executed there next child and so on till everyone was dead.

I think that this torture-scenario is exactly what the American interrogator threatened to do to Sayid if he did not comply and assist them in the interrogation/torture of his fellow Iraqi. And gee, it was just on TV five weeks before Jessie's "confession" of his "war crimes."

Any Lost fans out there care to comment?

Jesse should sue ABC for premeditated plagiarism.

There's a GREAT MP3 on the Jesse "Truth, Dude!" MacBeth situation at

AND a FINE recording, worthy of Mel Blanc, of 1-900-REALITY!
