Via the Power Line, here's a little something from Thomas Lipscomb, who did such excellent work on John Kerry's horseshit and lies during the campaign. And regarding Kerry's recent post mortem appearance on Meet the Press:
Asked about his Christmas Eve in Cambodia "seared, seared" in Kerry's memory, according to one of his Senate speech transcripts, Kerry tried a half-baked variation on the theme: "Was it on that night? No, it was not on that night. But we were right on the Cambodian border that night. We were ambushed there, as a matter of fact. And that is a matter of record, and we went into the rec-- you know, it's part of the Navy records."You have to wonder how Kerry ever managed to get through earlier encounters in other election seasons with those who suggested that his war record was full of embellishments. It did happen, but he always came through. This time, though? As John O'Neill knew, this time was for all the marbles.
It's obvious to me that John Kerry could not have afforded to see his full military service record released during the campaign. Not when he had balanced so much of his credibility on the rope of his experience in Viet Nam. And why? Because he lied about that experience. And he didn't want the world to know the circumstances of his discharge.
If Kerry does, as he's promised everyone and his dog, sign the Form 180, I'll be surprised. But I wouldn't be surprised to learn what's in his record.
