ABC NEWS: is reporting this morning that

“Contradicting his statements as a candidate for president, Sen. John Kerry claimed in a 1971 television interview that he threw away as many as nine of his combat medals to protest the war in Vietnam.

“I gave back, I can’t remember, six, seven, eight, nine medals,” Kerry said in an interview on a Washington, D.C., news program on WRC-TV called Viewpoints on Nov. 6, 1971, according to a tape obtained by ABCNEWS.

Throughout his presidential campaign, Kerry has denied that he threw away any of his medals during an anti-war protest in April 1971.

Calling it a “phony controversy” instigated by the Republican party, Kerry said on Good Morning America today that he has always accurately said what took place. “I threw my ribbons. I didn’t have my medals. It is very simple.”

So was John Kerry lying then, or lying now?

And either way, consider this week’s BIT, regarding why we honor those who serve.
Ask yourself; is this kind of man who we really want at the helm?


Captain Ed has noticed something I’d not quite put a handle to, yet… A Whiff of Desperation both on the part of the liberal press… most notably the NY TIMES… but also from Kerry himself.
