I have done some research this morning into this “Ben Timmons” and made a couple of interesting discoveries.
Firstly I discovered that he has tried in the past to sue his old employers when he worked as a meet inspector and he was unsuccessful. What is very
interesting is how he chose to have his court fees paid he done so by claiming legal aid on medical grounds citing his mental health problems. In
2006 he also tried to have this case looked at again and was told he was basically being annoying
I then also found something interesting on a thread used by guys working in close protection about Compass ISS. There Ben Timmons has posted a short
post about his treatment, the kidnapping for example (although nothing about the weapons). Another member who calls himself “Kiwiranger” responds
by accusing Mr Timmons of “losing the plot” and states this is because he was suffering due to his mental health which he was being medicated for
and challenges him quite clearly stating that the reason for his “kidnapping” was because he “lost the plot on the base”.
Here is the Link
to the website where if
found that information, I would recommend reading page’s 5 and 6. Unfortunately the website requires you to register if you want to view more than a
few pages, however I have taken the liberty of attempting to contact “KiwiRanger” regarding Mr Timmons claims in this thread.
I have also seen some legal websites that refer to a case in which Mr Timmons has attempted to unsuccessfully sue Compass ISS for unfair dismissal,
again he was unsuccessful.
Now on ATS we often have threads like this, there is basically one source and they are ripped to shreds.
While I respect Springer for the fantastic work he has done for this site I have to treat this thread like any other thread and I think everyone else
should be doing the same.
As I have shown above the source for this thread “Mr Timmons” is highly unreliable, he is psychologically imbalanced, has tried to file for unfair
dismissal in the past and now we even have someone claiming that when Mr Timmons was in Afghanistan he “lost the plot”. Furthermore there are no
other witnesses cited in the OP that corroborate what this very doggy source is saying.
Another point I wish to reiterate is that there is zero proof that Compass ISS is supplying weapons to Afghan insurgents and as such even the title of
this thread is questionable.
I think other members need to stop looking at the author of this thread and start looking at the details of the thread when responding.
