It is if you were there and know it is in all likelihood a boldfaced lie!!

But then again, neither is falsifying the record of that service.

"Trying to find fault in someone's war service is not honorable."

Vets are honorable to protect the integrity of their service by fighting for purity in the award system, and exposing the heroism hitchhikers. When one bases the strength of his attacks on fellow vets and the current military on his military record, it be idiotic not to take a simple look at that record.

Agreed, unless that someone is waving his service and decorations as a flag to lend credence to a political cause, and there is reason to question the awards, as appears to be the case here.

If Col Murtha wanted to quash this, he could release the records.

As President Reagan said, "Trust, but verify".

It's something that depends on the circumstances. Kerry, for instance, needed to be exposed.
