Earlier this year, when the Party of Michael Moore demanded that "deserter" George W. Bush release his military service records, Bush - whose records would supposedly be embarrassing - promptly released the records, which showed that he was a good fighter pilot, flying Cold War continental air-defense missions, and that his service was honorable, if undistinguished. Bush's records were a big dud for Democrats looking for a "smoking gun" to turn swing voters against the President.
Now, just as "war hero" John Kerry reports for duty, founding his campaign for President of the United States upon his putative heroics in Vietnam, those heroics have been called into question by a group of two-hundred of his fellow Vietnam War Swift Boat Veterans. So why doesn't Kerry - whose records would presumably bring him further glory - simply release the records and be vindicated?
Moreover, why does the same news media that gave such frenzied institence to the DNC-inspired "Bush was AWOL" hoopla, now seem so uninterested in seeing Kerry's military service records?
