Skip to comments.New Swift Boat book sets the record straight

Since losing the 2004 presidential election, John Kerry and his supporters have continued to claim "Unfit for Command: Swift Boat Veterans Speak out against John Kerry" and the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth have been "discredited" for spreading a pack of lies about Kerry's military service in Vietnam and his subsequent leadership in the anti-war movement....

An easy litmus test is to remember who spoke up for the Swift Boat guys, and who didn’t.
What about sKerry’s vow to disprove a single allegation to receive a million bucks?
That promise was lost, upriver in Cambodia someplace.
As I recall, McCain defended Kerry against the dishonorable attacks by the Swift Boat Vets.
He never did make his SF-180 public.
Is that your word?
But it’s not dishonorable to pursue Purple Hearts?
I should have put “dishonorable” in quotes. That was, I believe, McCain’s words.
Just remembering who McCain is.
Thanks for posting, sounds like a “must read.”
That is exactly correct and IF Huckabee is all he claims to be he would be demanding a bit of repentance out of McCain for his less than honorable deeds and stop coveting Romney's wealth.
Corsi book review ping...
John Kerrys service record includes the years 1970 and 1971 in which he performed service for Jane Fonda and her allies of far greater importance than his few months of service against the VC and NVA. I am glad to see a book countering his uncorroborated testimony before Congress about how I and other members of TF116 committed unspeakable atrocities against the South Vietnamese. His testimony ensured marginalizing accounts of such facts that our boats and ships were ordered not to return fire from the village of Nam Can as they transited to and from Seafloat. We were expected to gut it out through the kill zone, because the village was designated by us as a sanctuary from the war for civilians.
Wasn’t that around Christmas?
I saw T. Boone Pickens on TV a month or so ago reiterating that he has $1 million for John Kerry if he releases his records and proves that what the Swift Boat Vets said wasn’t true. Funny that Kerry hasn’t taken him up on it.
Yo Deb, what up?
I think McCain gave more than a little support to John efn Kerry at that time.
All of the folks who are now using “Swift Boating” as an adjective forget or choose to ignore the fact that those who were calling Kerry on his fake heroizm are themselves Honest to God Heroes.
