John F. Kerry almost became president running on the basis of his alleged heroism in Vietnam. Thanks to the efforts of a group of truth-tellers, the Swiftboat Veterans for Truth, the serious holes in the fantasy narrative propounded by the Kerry campaign came to the attention of enough Americans that John Kerry was not the first faux-Irish President of the United States.

Wow! Just Wow!
VERY unusual. Once your earn an award, it is very difficult to have it taken away. We had a Sailor who received the Navy and Marine Corps Achievement medal in the afternoon and that night went out and celebrated and got a DUI. He kept the medal. Of course when the Secretary of the Navy takes it away from you that is allowed.
All his awards were revoked when he was dishonorably discharged. Of course Jimmy reinstated him and them.
This is why he will not open his military records.
If the Navy brass had any guts they would also revoke Kerry’s fake medals and publicize his dishonorable discharge.
LOL! Re-swiftboated! TYPICAL LIBERAL DEMONCRATS...liars and perverts all!
Kerry’s big front man is a kiddie porn king? LOL.
“Reporting for duty, sir!” Ha Ha Ha
I knew there was just something totally SICK with that Lurch looking MFer Kerry. I mean, besides the committing of HIGH TREASON during the Viet Nam War.
They’re too busy getting poofers and womyn onto subs.
Ok, I knew he had fake or suspect medals, but never knew of a DISHONORABLE discharge. I thought he had a GENERAL discharge.
And that he has yet to release his unexpurgated military record directly to the public?
Made me cry to read that.
I have heard rumors to that effect.
“Did you know that JFnK served in Vietnam?”
No. Who could posibly know?
And then came 2008...
Why have I never heard that Kerry was a Viet Nam vet? Who knew? I might have voted for him if he had bothered to mention it.
I’m waiting for Ed Shultz to talk about it before coming to any defaming conclusions on this matter. /MS
The article says he’s a retired Naval captain. Just curious, does anyone know if a felony conviction gets your retirement benefits revoked? Personally I think it should.
I don't know what Kerry got but when I served, even a general discharge was thought to be considerably less than honorable and to be avoided.
Does he have to throw it over the fence at the Pentagon to give it back?.................
Thanks....I had a few email exchanges with Sanders during the phony kerry’s run for the W. H. He is a dirtbag of the highest order...and now this comes to light....Think I’ll have an early drink in celebration....
I knew he was in Prison...and had the day the sorry bastard had to report marked so I could celebrate that dates as well.... Damn I love good news!
A San Diego veterans activist and Vietnam War hero who served in a senior Navy post during the Clinton administration pleaded guilty yesterday to a federal charge of possessing child pornography. Wade Rowland Sanders, 67, acknowledged in federal court in San Diego that last May, he possessed computer files containing 600 images of minors, including a 21-minute video that depicted girls engaging in sex acts with an adult man, according to court records. He was caught under a 2½-year-old Department of Justice investigation called Project Safe Childhood, the U.S. Attorneys Office in San Diego said.
Authorities arrested him Nov. 7.
In a telephone interview last night, Sanders said he had downloaded the files as part of his research for an article on the sexual exploitation of children in foreign countries. He said his work for the Clinton administration had included aiding victims of child sex abuse in the former Yugoslavia. I have no sexual attraction to children whatsoever, Sanders said. There was no evil intent. Sanders, a lawyer, said he didnt realize federal child pornography laws barred downloading or viewing the material even by researchers. He said that is why he decided to plead guilty.
I thought since my motives were pure and innocent, that would make a difference, he said. Im technically guilty of the crime.
Sanders pleaded guilty to one felony charge of possession of images of minors engaged in sexually explicit conduct.
Sanders served as President Clintons Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Reserve Affairs, but chances are hes one Clinton administration veteran who Barack Obama wont be asking to join his administration.
And then came 2008...
Just when you start to think that liberals couldn't possibly stoop any lower, they show you a thing or two.
How do you get a story without getting the facts?
this could be another example of zero-tolerance laws that do not allow for reason.
U-T Editor Claims His Letter in Support of Wade Sanders Was Altered
May 6, 2009
FBI agents are looking into whether a letter written on behalf of Bill Clinton’s former military adviser was doctored. This week, a federal judge sentenced Wade Sanders to 37 months in prison for possession of child porn. KPBS Reporter Amita Sharma has details.
Union Tribune Editor Bernie Jones notified the judge this week that his letter in support of Sanders had been altered. He says he sent his original letter to Sanders.
“In my original letter, I had said to the judge I don’t see any purpose being served by a long prison term. That was changed to any prison term. I did not address in my letter the sex offender status because I was uncomfortable doing so.”
But the version submitted by Sanders to the judge has Jones advocating against Sanders being registered as a sex offender. Jones wouldn’t comment on who he thinks altered the letter. Jones blamed himself for not reading the letter Sanders sent back to him more carefully before he signed it. So did Sanders defense attorney Knut Johnson.
“I would expect an editor of a major newspaper would know to read it and look through and make sure that he agreed with the changes before he signed it and faxed it to me.”
Johnson believes Jones is trying to distance himself from his letter of support for Sanders because of criticism from colleagues. Jones denied that.

Is there anyone of the left with any intergrity? Everything they say is a lie and goes against human nature.

In spite of all that was published during the campaign, I've never heard this. Can you explain it further?
Wade Rowland Sanders: Motives For Child Porn Were Pure and Innocent
December 23, 2008
Wade Rowland Sanders, a decorated Vietnam veteran who worked closely with the Clinton administration, pleaded guilty to possessing child pornography this week. He maintains, however, that he never did it for personal or sexual reasons
he was doing research with pete townsend and gary glitter.
Yea, who woulda thunk the slope was that slippery or that steep.
Wonder if he will commit “Boorda-cide”?
Judge Whelan gave him a far lower sentence than the maximum of 10 years, or the punishment suggested by the prosecution. Whelan was nominated by President Bill Clinton on June 4, 1998.
Don’t forget Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul and Mary.
I think a new law should be proposed, by freshmen congressmen if veterans aren't so disposed, to require that all candidates for elected or appointed Federal offices or positions, be required to make all personal records available to the public : Actual Birth Certificate as recorded (no facsimiles or summaries,) Education, Tax Returns, records of misdemeanors and felonies, and legal suits of which they have been a party.
The law should specifically reserve the rights of privacy for everyone else : i.e. Joe ordinary citizen/taxpayer.
If the Congressional leadership shelves the proposed law, it shall be reintroduced until a vote is allowed and it is adopted.
End of corruption, anyone?
What do you expect the guy to say? “Yeah, I get off on kiddie porn!!”? If he wasn't connected to Kerry, he'd be spending much more time in prison.
Wow is right! US Navy please set the REAL Kerry record straight.
And it would effectively put a stop to all Democrat candidates for any office whatsoever.
Even city dog catcher.
Men who claim awards for heroism when not entitled are lower than pond scum.
Probably not going to happen as long as Kerry occupies his senate seat.
My understanding is that it's supposed to, but in practice it rarely happens. It doesn't appear that Sanders has suffered any inconvenience in the area of his pension.
Very good. But perhaps you're thinking of the Capitol.
Hereafter known as the "Pete Townsend" defense. Oh, those kiddie porn shots on my computer? I needed those for research!
LOL! Only an Obama-voter would buy that excuse!
Having been compared to Joseph Goebbels by the illustrious Mr. Sanders myself, I think I'll join you.
Thanks for posting this article and your original report. I wish the Navy would review all of Kerry’s medals, especially the Purple Hearts that got him out of the war.
You sir area an absolute warrior for the conservative cause. May you live long and prosper!
Are you serious? That excuse is right up there with, “That pot in my pants pocket isn’t mine, officer. These pants aren’t mine, either.”
