Band of Brothers Against Kerry

Ann Coulter's most recent article discusses John Kerry's lies and distortions, in relation to his time spent in Vietnam.

Two hundred fifty-four Swift Boat Veterans have signed a letter saying John Kerry is not fit to be commander in chief, a point developed in some detail in the blockbuster new book by John O'Neill, aptly titled "Unfit for Command." At the 2003 reunion of Swift Boat Veterans, about 300 men showed up: 85 percent of them think Kerry is unfit to be president. (On the bright side, Kerry was voted, in absentia, "Most Likely to Run for President on His Phony War Record.") Fewer than 10 percent of all Swift Boat Veterans contacted refused to sign the letter.

Of course, Kerry sycophants have come out of the woodwork, with accusations of political motivations, lies, greed and envy hurled at the swiftboat veterans.

For me, motivations have no relevance. The only factor that interests me is: Are they telling the truth? Is Kerry lying? The sheer weight of testimony against him seems to indicate that the answer to both questions is "Yes."
