    Powerline ^ | June 20, 2005
    Via the Freedom of Information Act, a reader obtained copies of the Form 180s that were recently signed by John Kerry to permit, at long last, the release of his military records. I believe there may be a story about this in the New York Sun tomorrow, and no doubt more commentary will be forthcoming over the next few days. Here are the three documents that Kerry signed; on their face, I don't see anything wrong with them, but then, I'm no expert in military personnel records. We look forward to our readers' comments. Go to the link..there are 3...

    Today, June 14, 2005, the date of Marie Cocco's article on "the Kerry smear," is the 38th anniversary of the day my husband, Kevin McManus, of Babylon, Long Island, was shot down over Hanoi and then imprisoned for six years. During those six years, then-Lt. John Kerry, USN, served his near-four-month combat tour in South Vietnam with other Swiftees, nearly all of whom served for at least a year (many for longer than that); and returned to the United States where in early 1970 still-Lt. Kerry (now USNR), having run unsuccessfully for Congress in the Massachusetts Fourth District, decided he'd...

    Remember when John F. Kerry testified before the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations back in 1971? Just in case you forgot, or never knew about it in the first place, here's a taste of what he said. "They [American soldiers] told the stories at times they had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the countryside...

    DESPITE THE continuing gripes of his critics, records released this week show that Senator John Kerry served honorably in Vietnam. The documents should put to rest claims that Kerry misrepresented his military record in the presidential race. But Kerry's failure to respond to the smear campaign launched against him last summer lent credibility to its real objective: to impugn his equally honorable opposition to the war. John O'Neill, a Houston lawyer and Kerry's adversary on the war since 1971, acknowledged as much in a telephone interview Wednesday. ''We produced seven commercials," he said of his anti-Kerry group, now called Swift...
  • KERRY'S BIG SECRET REVISITED - (release to Globe reporter doesn't get him off the hook)

    I may have been too quick and too generous in giving John Kerry the benefit of the doubt about the full and complete release of his military records, as reported by the Boston Globe on Tuesday. As Thomas Lipscomb details in today's Chicago Sun-Times, some questions and confusion remain. The exact details will most likely get sorted out in time, but just for the moment let's consider the one aspect of this story that we know for sure: Kerry released his records exclusively to The Boston Globe. This is an odd decision for someone seeking end speculation regarding the whole...
  • What are odds for Kerry in '08? Not good

    Sen. John F. Kerry claims he's yet to decide on a 2008 presidential run, but oddsmakers are already counting him out, predicting he'll come in dead last out of nine potential candidates for the Democratic nomination. The Bay State's junior senator, who missed becoming president by just one state, has been tabbed a 9-to-1 underdog by online casino, behind favorite Hillary Clinton, and Kerry's vice-presidential running mate John Edwards. He also ranked behind Sen. Evan Bayh (D-Ind.), Iowa Gov. Tom Vilsack, New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) and former South Dakota senator Tom Daschle.
  • Doing a 180 (John Kerry signs on dotted line. Plus: Separation of left and godlessness.)

    ANOTHER KERRY DISCHARGEBefore Memorial Day weekend, Sen. John Kerry sat down with editors of his hometown newspaper, the Boston Globe and announced that he had signed the form SF 180, authorizing the Department of Defense to grant access to all his military records. This, more than a year after he had claimed the press and public had seen all there was to see from his military record. Only one problem: according to several sources who formerly worked on the Kerry campaign, the senator expects that little to nothing new will be in the files that are released. "He's fairly confident...
  • Kerry allows Navy release of military, medical records (Navy provided them to Boston Globe)

    Senator John F. Kerry, ending at least two years of refusal, has waived privacy restrictions and authorized the release of his full military and medical records. The records, which the Navy Personnel Command provided to the Globe, are mostly a duplication of what Kerry released during his 2004 campaign for president, including numerous commendations from commanding officers who later criticized Kerry's Vietnam service. The lack of any substantive new material about Kerry's military career in the documents raises the question of why Kerry refused for so long to waive privacy restrictions.

    Kerry Touts Bush Impeachment Memo Failed presidential candidate John Kerry said Thursday that he intends to confront Congress with a document touted by critics of President Bush as evidence that he committed impeachable crimes by falsifying evidence of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. "When I go back (to Washington) on Monday, I am going to raise the issue," Kerry said, referring to the Downing Street Memo in an interview with Massachusetts' Standard Times newspaper.

  • Kerry Justifies Idea of Nomination Delay (... or *tries* to, at any rate...)

    WASHINGTON -- John F. Kerry yesterday defended the idea of leaving the Democratic National Convention in July without a formal nomination as his party's presidential candidate, saying that there is ample political precedent to support it and that Republicans are complaining about the move because "someone might have a way of neutralizing their advantage." The Massachusetts senator told the Globe: "One thing I can tell you is that on Wednesday night, the [candidate for] vice president of the United States will be nominated and give a speech, and on Thursday night I will give my speech."
