Rood didn't "serve(d) with Kerry on his boat" yet his story is credible because he backs Kerry. Hypocrisy? Yep. Funny that the Cape Cod Times doesn't show the files, just a description of what's in them. I'm not denying what's in the files. I just haven't seen them yet. And after action reports written by an admitted liar about "Christmas in Cambodia" already suffer a credibilty problem. But I'm sure that Kerry inflating his war record wil be "seared-- seared" into the voters' minds.
