During an interview yesterday with Globe editorial writers and columnists, the former Democratic presidential nominee was asked if had signed Form SF 180, authorizing the Department of Defense to grant access to all his military records. ''I have signed it," Kerry said. Then, he added that his staff was ''still going through it" and ''very, very shortly, you will have a chance to see it."

I don't believe him. Period. His lips moved, so he had to be lying.
effin has signed the 180, I wonder what his staff is alledgedly "going through" and how soon we will actually get to see it....
I first signed the form before I didn't sign it
why would his staff have to "go thru" a short authorization form?
I signed it, but I haven't submitted it. There, I have fulfilled my promise.....
"I signed it, but I haven't submitted it. There, I have fulfilled my promise....."
You may well be on to something.
Haven't we heard this from him before. I don't believe him. He always twists words around.
By the way... I think what George thinks...
All pics found @ Strange Politics
Red Badger is definately on to something...
Coincidental that he maybe signed, maybe will file, on this day of betrayal by the RINOs?
Kerry: "It is being edited as we speak."
I think he means he endorsed a long littany of flip-flops. Everyone knows that a flip is 180 degrees from a flop...
What 'John Kerry reporting for duty' really means is after his staff is finished going through it he will show us a copy of Form SF 180.
He's well known for doing a 180.
He signed it, then locked it away in his file cabinet without ever submitting it to the DoD.
Does he know that it's 2005?
John O'Neill has apparently signed a Form 180:
I wonder how many lies will come to the surface about his service?
After all, we know he's lied about his service in Vietnam.
Don't think so? Here's a FOIA summary of his service posted by the Navy Times:
So according to his own records - and simple arithmetic - he served about 15 months on a minesweeper, which spent about three months of that time in Vietnamese waters:
Then he spent just under a year in Vietnam proper on Swift Boats - about 3.5 months in Cos. Div. 13 and 8 months in Cos. Div. 11. (also check out the history link at www.swiftboats.net).
That makes a grand total of about 15 months of service in or off the coast of Vietnam.
But a quick Google search shows that in 1971 he repeatedly claimed to have been "in Vietnam" nearly THREE YEARS:
During the Cavett debate: "... and after being in Vietnam for almost three years, I decided I wanted to go home back to Texas."
To the US Conference of Mayors: "I served in Vietnam for almost three years."
In a written statement prepared for a congressional committee: "This was the single most heroic act that I have witnessed during almost three years in Vietnam."
More uh, "misrepresentations":
To Kerry, in Cavett debate: "The first point is I served in Coastal Division 11 for 12 months, not four. ... I did serve in the same place you did, and not for four months but for 18 months... ."
"I served in Coastal Division 11 for a year. . . .I served for much of the prior two years in waters adjacent to Vietnam. "
And more recently:
"Ironically, John Kerry and I served much of our time, a full 12 months in my case and an abbreviated 4 month tour in his, commanding the exact same six-man boat, PCF-44, which I took over after he requested early departure."
Actually, he took over PCF 54 (not PCF 44) more than eight months after Kerry left.
Correction to Post #24:
O'Neill took over PCF 94 five months after Kerry left, not eight months.
Uh, his staff is 'going through it' with a scrub brush and bleach.
