So he is fair game now huh? I have no doubt that there are many young women who are abducted and forced into sexual slavery every year. To use that as a money making scam is beyond deplorable.

Bill Hillar's students had doubts about his claims of dangerous exploits as a Special Forces Colonel. Officials at the Monterey Institute of International Studies say the students' doubts have merit.

He also boasted, they recalled, that the 2008 action movie "Taken," starring Liam Neeson, was based on his life and his daughter's kidnapping by men who wanted to enslave her.

Such claims, along with incidents in which Hillar seemed to borrow material from other people's books, raised suspicions among some of his graduate students about Hillar's resume and background. "He didn't seem to act like a veteran or someone who served so highly in the military," recalled Brian Hubbs, a graduate student and Marine veteran.

So this fall, Hubbs and several other veterans attending the graduate institute began investigating Hillar's resume. And the school now says their suspicions had merit

Monterey Institute spokesman Jason Warburg said Hillar has not responded to the school's requests for a meeting and documents to verify his background.

The 750-student institute, a graduate school of Middlebury College in Vermont, has issued a public apology that it did not check Hillar's resume more thoroughly before engaging him to teach his three-day workshops. It promised that it would extend to part-time workshop instructors the background check required of all other faculty. And the school's president, Sunder Ramaswamy, has praised Hubbs and the other students for "the integrity they have displayed."

The institute is offering students replacement workshops and a chance to erase Hillar's courses from their academic records.
I think it's time for Mr. Hillar to find a new job.

It is great that this FRAUD has been discovered and brought into the light.:lifter

The Real Special Forces Community is very small so POSERS beware. We are out there and if you feel the need to be a FAKE SF soldier you have a high probability of being discovered.

This site was the FIRST to discover and research this individual and prove that this SCUMBAG was a Fake. TS and others here assisted many others in realizing our facts were correct. Unfortunately there are many reporters that seem to need to not do their research resulting in articles stating that Students discovered and verified and outed this POSER and no one else (guess it plays better in their local news). Well just to set the record straight Team Sergeant was the one to find, verify Poser Status and pass this around to defrauded organizations and individuals.

Just wanted to set the record straight.

Hillar hasn't responded to telephone and e-mail messages.

Hey Billy boy....Looks like there will be nowhere to hide by the time the rest of the law enforcement community that you defrauded joins in......

New article:


University of Oregon Adjunct Professor Bill Hillar is under investigation by the Multnomah County Sheriff’s Department for fraud after some of his students at the Monterey Institute of International Studies discovered that Hillar had been lying about his exploits as a member of the US Army Special Forces and receiving a doctorate degree from the University of Oregon. Hillar had been a part-time instructor at the Institute, which is an adjunct campus of Middlebury College. He was scheduled to teach a Substance Abuse Prevention Program class this term at the University of Oregon, and during winter term 2010 taught a SAPP class in International Drug Trafficking that had 241 enrolled students. He also was one of the keynote speakers at last year’s Slavery Still Exists conference. He was scheduled to give a lecture at the University of Portland this month, but failed to show up, and all contact attempts have been fruitless. His website has since been taken down.

This story is still unfolding. Updates will be added as they are received. If you have any info on Hillar, or have taken a class with him, please email us at editor@oregoncommentator.com.
