Wow... This thing is getting real ugly. This Smear Boat thing has blown up in their faces with this admission. You can't have officers backing out of affidavits the day after the campaign gets started. But that's not to say that it hasn't done any damage.
This is what I STILL don't get about this whole thing, and makes it all suspect to me...
- The Swift Boat veterans say that Kerry lied Under oath, and that there were no atrocities or war crimes. As proof, they offer that no commander recorded any.
- The Swift Boat Veterans say that they saw Kerry committing atrocities and war crimes. However, no commander reported this information.
So what gives? I hate to undercut the credibility of a veteran. But this whole thing reaks of politics, and the credibility of these veterans is not holding up to scrutiny.
