Swift Boat Veterans

Everyone has discussed the SBV’s, and their allegations about Kerry. You can find some great articles at Instapundit, QandO, Captains Quarters, and many others, as well as the Swift Boat Veterans website, which I have added to my links of interest.

On a separate issue, the Left has made an enormous effort to discredit the over 200 Swifties, while believing the testimony of Kerry (who has been shown to be a liar regarding his Christmas ’68 “revelation”) and his Band of Brothers. The Swifties have been maligned by the left. But, consider:

“I do not believe John Kerry is fit to be Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces of the United States. This is not a political issue. It is a matter of his judgment, truthfulness, reliability, loyalty and trust — all absolute tenets of command. His biography, ‘Tour of Duty,’ by Douglas Brinkley, is replete with gross exaggerations, distortions of fact, contradictions and slanderous lies. His contempt for the military and authority is evident by even a most casual review of this biography. He arrived in-country with a strong anti-Vietnam War bias and a self-serving determination to build a foundation for his political future. He was aggressive, but vain and prone to impulsive judgment, often with disregard for specific tactical assignments. He was a ‘loose cannon.’ In an abbreviated tour of four months and 12 days, and with his specious medals secure, Lt.(jg) Kerry bugged out and began his infamous betrayal of all United States forces in the Vietnam War. That included our soldiers, our marines, our sailors, our coast guardsmen, our airmen, and our POWs. His leadership within the so-called Vietnam Veterans Against the War and testimony before Congress in 1971 charging us with unspeakable atrocities remain an undocumented but nevertheless meticulous stain on the men and women who honorably stayed the course. Senator Kerry is not fit for command.”

— Rear Admiral Roy Hoffmann, USN (retired), chairman, Swift Boat Veterans for Truth

Does a US Admiral’s voice carry weight? I would say, unnequivicolly, yes.

I was able to listen to a conversation between Jerry Agar, a local radio host on WPTF 680 in Raleigh, and Steven Gardner. The man was lucid, and very believable. The stories he told were amazing, and, if the Left would listen, and look for the truth, they would realize the reality of the man they are planning to vote for.
