Here's the one premise that blows all this crap out of the water, and the one, undeniable point (according to Navy records) that nobody seems willing to address, regardless of how Kerry earned his Puple Hearts: Did he command a Swift boat up the rivers of the Mekong Delta? Yes. Did he complete numerous missions? Yes. Did he come under fire numerous times? Yes. Did he personally pull a Special Forces soldier out of the water while under fire? Yes. Did he drive his boat into an enemy ambush, then leap off the boat and kill that enemy combatant? Yes.
Final, double Jeopardy question for $1000 bucks: Did he know in advance where every bullet, and every piece of shrapnel was headed?
If your answer to the last question is no, then you, and these so-called Swift Veterans Against Kerry, are now maligning, and attempting to defame, the reputation of an American hero in order to justify your own political ends.
Wave your flag accordingly.
