    August 9, 2004 WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The television ad that aroused the wrath of John McCain and journalist supporters of John Kerry just begins deconstruction of the Democratic presidential candidate's war record. "Unfit for Command: Swift Boat Veterans Speak Out Against John Kerry," a 214-page critique of his performance in Vietnam and the antiwar movement, is off the presses ahead of schedule. I have read the book and found it is neither the political propaganda nor the urban legend that its detractors claim. It is a passionate but meticulously researched account of how Kerry went to war, what he did...

    This is part one of a two part series on Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry's controversial tour of duty as a Swift Boat captain during the Vietnam War. – WASHINGTON - It is a presidential portrait. John Kerry cruising Boston harbor with his band of brothers from Vietnam, 12 Navy veterans vouching for his military record. But other veterans who also served with Kerry are painting a different picture. One says, "He is lying about his record. He dishonored his country. I served with John Kerry. He cannot be trusted." The Swift Boat Veterans for Truth is a group...

    Will Kerry's supporters stop at nothing? The cover of the new anti-Kerry book, Unfit for Command, set to hit shelves soon, has been given an alternative, pro-Kerry cover at the Barnes & Noble online store. The title of the book has been changed to Fit for Command, and the cover image has been changed from a close-up of a finger-pointing Kerry to a picture of Kerry in uniform with other Vietnam veterans. (The book currently sits at #7 on the Barnes & Noble Top 100 and at #2 on Amazon.) The book, which challenges the "war hero" status of John...

    The Fort Worth Star Telegram ^ | 08/08/2004 | Mark Davis
    Posted on Sun, Aug. 08, 2004 The Bush reaction that really matters By Mark Davis Special to the Star-Telegram If his Vietnam veteran critics' stories develop any legs, we may soon spend some time assessing whether John Kerry is blowing huge clouds of smoke our way about his Vietnam service. A group, Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, asserts that Kerry's medals are phony, as are his stories of valor and honorable service in his four months in a combat zone. I have no idea what to think of these accusations. I would neither embrace nor dismiss them without further examination....

    The Democrat National Committee has prepared a full-scale assault against the Vietnam Veterans for Truth to draw their character and veracity into question, according to one anonymous source inside the DNC. The campaign of character assassination is scheduled to coincide with the release of the book Unfit for Command which reveals inconvenient facts for the Kerry campaign. “We have prepared what we call ‘Brown Books’ that contain damaging military records, personal credit histories, medical histories, psychiatric histories, divorce records, you name it,” our source told us. The “Brown Books” are so-called because of their distinctive plain brown covers, which contain...
