Skip to comments.Kerry allows Navy release of military, medical records (Navy provided them to Boston Globe)
Posted on 06/06/2005 11:05:28 PM PDT by FairOpinion
Senator John F. Kerry, ending at least two years of refusal, has waived privacy restrictions and authorized the release of his full military and medical records.
The records, which the Navy Personnel Command provided to the Globe, are mostly a duplication of what Kerry released during his 2004 campaign for president, including numerous commendations from commanding officers who later criticized Kerry's Vietnam service.
The lack of any substantive new material about Kerry's military career in the documents raises the question of why Kerry refused for so long to waive privacy restrictions.

Fraud Kerry ping
Tonk, did you hear anything about this?
"On May 20, Kerry signed a document called Standard Form 180, authorizing the Navy to send an ''undeleted" copy of his ''complete military service record and medical record" to the Globe. "
Apparently he did sign the 180 -- but seriously, I wouldn't be surprised if some mole hadn't gotten in there and removed some incriminating ones, such as his original suspected dishonorable or at least general discharge.
WHOA he finally did it I wonder how much that wasn't release to the public come on John dont be hiding behind your wife Teresa skirt here
He just released the same crap again. There were a substantianal number of files missing, including reason for discharge etc.
This is whitewash. He did not sign anything I'll bet.
I posted on a thread in early 2004 that Kerry had a mole in the DOD who was slowly and surreptitiously sanitizing his file. Looks like the job has been completed, and now the pajama squad has another job to do detecting the alterations and frauds. Of course the MSM won't give any of it any credence.
Who has access now? Maybe it is the content that was altered. Maybe the handlers at the Globe are just willing to not turn over any rocks.
There were suspicions, mine included, that something might have been less-than-honorable.
Ideally, we'll be able to get to the purple heart of the matter.
"I posted on a thread in early 2004 that Kerry had a mole in the DOD who was slowly and surreptitiously sanitizing his file."
I'm with you -- it's not only possible, but highly probable.
something does not smell right
Judicial Watch applied to get all of Kerry's Navy record,
during the campaign, I followed this case very closely
the Navy gave Judicial Watch a bunch of documents (including one that suggested that one of Kerry's band of brothers lied about being present for one of his heroic actions, the Navy document showed the man was in hospital or something, I think the NY Sun picked up on that as well)
the Navy told Judicial Watch to go to Kerry's website for some of the documents [Judicial Watch was very pissed off, they felt they should get copies of the Navy originals not what John Kerry claimed was the copy of his record to make sure he hadn't deleted or altered what he had posted]
and then the Navy said there were at least 100 documents they could not release without Kerry's consent
now that 100 document number has been variously reported from 40 to 100 documents or pages of documents....which implies there are a bunch of documents out there that only Judicial Watch and maybe the NY Sun has seen and a bunch of documents no one has seen
we can only conclude that Kerry got his records cleaned up before he even considered running or he got it cleaned up since the election realizing he still wanted to take a kick at the can and that Hillary would be gunning for any tidbit
the nice thing about Hillary is if Kerry is hiding something, if Kerry did manage to whitewash his record, if anyone can find out he did, it will be Hillary....
Whatever happened to the documents that Nicosia (IIRC) had obtained via FOIA - all 14 boxes of them? I remember some were "stolen" at just the right time. Seems like that guy needs to be paid a visit.
And of course, none of them are available to view. There are words missing from this story. Words like "cleared by kerry to be released". There are files requesting citation wording changes, where are they?
IOW, nothing new.
Somebody ping the Swifties.
I recall the Pentagon said last year it did not release about 100 of Kerry's documents.
Here is what a signed form 180 will reveal......
John Kerry entered the Navy with an Agenda
John Kerry took an 8mm Camera with him in order to record his own self Jimmy Carter pardoned John Kerry for his anti-war activities while still an officer of the Navy.
John Kerry involved himself with several violent anti-war groups who drew FBI scrutiny, his actions while considered the leader of the VVAW played a significant factor in the whole Water-Gate scandal.
I personally don't believe John Kerry will ever sign Form 180, he simply can't defend the reports from his crew-mates, nor his self written "After action" reports
