Now Playing: "Obsession" by Animotion
The Chicago Sun-Times' Thomas Lipscomb has some doubts about whether John Kerry has, in fact, released all of his military service records:
A front page story in the Boston Globe claimed that: "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." In another Globe story Kerry had promised "The truth in its entirety will come out." But did it?Whether you think harping on this is chickenshit or irrelevant or anything else, you must agree that there is no other rational explanation for why John Kerry refused to release those files. None. He must have had something to hide ---and it's not (as Steve Soto speculates)--- "vanity" over having the world see that he did worse than Bush in school.
Kerry's election hopes faltered last summer and fall as accusations of fraudulent and incomplete military records were aired. The fact that Kerry repeatedly refused to sign a single-page military form called the Standard Form 180, that would have released all his military records to the public, was taken as proof he had something to hide.
Care to take a guess as to what the real embarrassment was?
