SENATOR KERRY ASKED TO SIGN RECORDS RELEASE FORM
Watchdog Asks Kerry to Keep His Word Concerning Signing Standard Form 180
Kerry's Opportunity to Release Full Naval Service Record to the American People
(Washington, DC) Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, today asked Senator John F. Kerry to keep his word to the American public and sign a Standard Form 180 (SF 180), "Request Pertaining to Military Records." On Sunday, January 30, 2005, during an appearance on the NBC News show "Meet the Press," moderator Tim Russert asked Senator Kerry (three times) if he would sign an SF 180 and release all of his military records. On the third attempt Senator Kerry answered Mr. Russert plainly:
MR. RUSSERT: Would you sign Form 180?
SEN. KERRY: Yes, I will.
In a letter hand delivered to Senator Kerry's office, Judicial Watch asked him to execute the SF 180 immediately and thereby put to rest the controversies surrounding his service as a U.S. Navy officer.
Judicial Watch requested release of Senator Kerry's military service records under the provisions of the Freedom of Information Act ("FOIA"). Navy Personnel Command withheld thirty-one (31) pages of documents because Senator Kerry refused to sign an SF 180 and release them to the public. The records pertained to: "Personnel service jackets and service records, correspondence and records in both automated and non-automated form concerning classification, assignment, distribution, promotion, advancement, performance, recruiting, retention, reenlistment, separation, training, education, morale, personal affairs, benefits, entitlements, discipline and administration of naval personnel."
"Senator Kerry has yet to come clean with the American people," stated Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. "We hope he will finally keep his promise to release his military records."
Much of the information concerning Sen. Kerry's questionable awards for valor, and allegations concerning his actions both on Active Duty and as an Inactive Naval Reserve officer was detailed in the best-selling book "Unfit for Command," by John E. O'Neill and Jerome R. Corsi, PhD.
His pen is out of ink. His wife has his pen. He left his pen in Iraq in his SUV.
SEN. KERRY (crossing his fingers behind his back): Yes, I will.
He signed it on Christmas, back in Cambodia...
Kerry MEANT to add "when pigs fly"
He gave his "lucky pen" to a CIA agent while delivering arms to the Khmer Rouge.
The hamster, that he gave mouth-to-mouth to, ate the pen!
Kerry: I agreed to sign it before I decided not to sign it!
I thought Kerry left himself some weasel room and said he'd sign it only after he knew what was in it?
Absolutely! Keep the pressure on this twit. He made his record a campaign issue and it's now time to come clean. He and demoncRATS put the pressure on da Bushman; turnabout is fair play. RELEASE THOSE RECORDS, sKERRY!
Here is mine:
He received an 'other than honorable' discharge, which was later upgraded as a result of political favoritism.
This information will end any speculation that he will ever run for the Presidency again (as if).
In his family's SUV. He doesn't own one. His family does.
I voted for the 87 Billion BEfore I voted against it
Anybody want to tell me why Russert didn't have the form on him?
Is he signing to release his records before he signs against them?
Where was Russert, BEFORE the election?
