"Richard Grenell, the former acting Director of National Intelligence in the Trump administration, was "duped" after a correspondent from a left-leaning magazine fooled him into thanking a convicted war criminal for his service in the US Army.

Ken Klippenstein, a correspondent for The Nation, in a tweet attached a photo of Bill Calley and misleadingly suggested it was his grandfather.

Calley was convicted of killing at least 22 unarmed people in the My Lai Massacre in 1968, during the Vietnam War. The Army officer was sentenced to life in prison, but after a new trial served just three years in house arrest.

Klippenstein, who is most known for his time spent online and his proficiency in submitting Freedom of Information Act requests to federal agencies, said in his tweet that his grandfather was a "huge fan" and that it would "make his day" if Grenell would give him a shout-out.

According to a screenshot of Klippenstein’s direct-messages, Grenell asked him what his grandfather’s name was, to which the correspondent replied by providing Calley’s name."
