Rev. Jim Moats Lies About Being Navy SEAL

A central Pennsylvania pastor who said he was a Navy SEAL and Vietnam vet has been exposed as a fraud. For five years, parishioners of the Christian Bible Fellowship Church in Newville, Pennsylvania believed that their pastor, Rev. Jim Moats, was an ex-SEAL who'd seen combat during the Vietnam War.

The pastor's tales of waterboarding and kitchen duty sounded familiar to Don Shipley, a real ex-SEAL – they were a mashup of plot points from the movies "Under Siege" and "G.I. Jane."
