You're misreading the conversation that the SBVT are in, Andrew. They're
laying out a big fat line of bullshit for everybody to see, so that they
can push Kerry around in public. The conversation isn't about whether
there's any truth to the allegations, it's about whether Kerry can do
anything about a blatant lie.
Kerry has a stack of medals as thick as a phone book -- there's no doubt
that he was a distinguished soldier. That's a non-conversation.
