935 / 2 sounds very plausible! BUt there must be a number of letters FROM Kerry requesting all of these changes. Those letters, if they are ever recovered, will paint Kerry in his own words as a medal scrounger.

Isn't it a Federal crime to alter military documents?

federal crimes don't apply to dems, just ask them.

I think I prefer to keep the info here. Everytime we start a new thread, some pieces of the puzzle get lost.

Does everyone agree...just let this thread run until there are significant new developments?

I still think it's a wasted effort.
Lehman also said that he signed routine paperwork to replace 'lost' medals. That's a whole separate ballgame since he appears confused as to whether he threw medals, or ribbons, or whose they were. Did he really toss his own, then decide later he wanted them for his wall in the Senate Offices? Reasonable question.

I think that there are enough things to discuss with regards to Sen Kerry, his military record, his activism, and his Senate record.

The details about who signed a replacements citation is way too far out in the weeds. It will not resonate with voters, even if it is NOT a routine medal replacement request.

What the %^%^&*&^* does "MSM" stand for?

MainStream Media.

That's garbage though. You ARE right. That's what they mean. But there's nothing mainstream about them. These guys are fifth-column lefties, who have NO love for this country, and would like to see it destroyed. They, themselves, feel so 'connected' and so wealthy that they believe they'd escape any ill-consequences from their destructive agenda. But, ultimately, being self-destructive, conceited, bi-polar, etc., I don't think they'd care. And it isn't mainstream. It's leftwing, period. I refer to it for what it is - leftwing 'mainstream' - LM.

We can have individual threads, but the posters might want to link them to this thread. It has developed legs and some incredible links.

Not if you're a Dem'Rat. You can also steal classified documents, kill women in your car, and trade satellite technology to the Chinese in return for campaign contributions, if you so choose.

****ANOTHER UPDATE****

Major Garrett had another report on Fox tonight. I came in late, but heard him say Lehman called him today. When I came in the room he was saying, "...he said he put it through, but has no idea how that extra flowery language got added. He wishes he could find out."

I'm glad to hear Lehman is making calls. He wants an answer, too.

This what I found over at The Hill:

Major Garrett reported that former Navy Secretary John Lehman, a member of the Sept. 11 commission, now is questioning the addition of a line in an updated letter Kerry apparently sent in the mid-1980s concerning a medal he received.

Fox said the additional sentence contained “flowery” language.

Good news re Lehman getting personally involved in Kerry's blatant fill in his own medal commendation.

It sounds like it didn't end in Nam but continued at least to the mid 1980's.

Remember how vicious the mediots of the MSM branch of the rats were with Admiral Borda and one little V on a single ribbon. If there was a single good reporter amongst the mediots of the MSM branch of the rats, they would be all over this story.
