A clerical error is ALMOST a non-issue - remember, Kerry's camps has appealed to "the official Navy records" as infallible authority of truth.
If the medal paperwork is screwy, then that defense is necessarily weakened.
What I find really odd is the three separate citations, each with different wording and different signatures... usually if you lose your citation, you write the Navy and get a new COPY. It's not normal procedure to get an entirely new citation written up, with dolled up language.
Lehman says he never saw the one with his name on it, and didn't write the text.

Don't get wrong, I'm not defending Kerry in any way, shape or form. I want his butt on a platter.
A clerical error would be a legitimate excuse for any vet. However, as I mentioned, it is up to the individual vet to notify the proper authorities of any discrepancies to have any errors corrected. According to Kerry's web site, he didn't correct advertised errors. The question is why? Also, if true, are they going to give him a pass?
