I’ve written several times about how I wish the Kerry campaign would leave the Vietnam stuff behind and move on, so I’m a little embarrassed to be writing a post on the issue of Kerry’s Vietnam medals; however, I have good reason. For one thing, this new web site, devoted to debunking the book Unfit for Command, is written by a friend. For another, he’s done an excellent job. And third, like it or not focusing on this issue seems to be part of Kerry’s strategy, and it seems to be working.
Here’s how my friend describes his site (emphasis added):
Much of the criticism of the Swift Boat Veterans for “Truth” has centered around their sources of funding and advice. This review uses a different tactic and confronts them head on, on their own turf. It incorporates a number of recently-released U.S. Navy documents not available on the Kerry/Edwards site, which are provided in PDF format.
In other words, if you are interested in this issue — as a lot of people seem to be, then this is a must-read site providing trenchant arguments and important new documentation. Please link to this site so that it shows up on Google for anyone interested in knowing the truth about the “truth”.
