Kerry's Vietnam

John Kerry, who is a member of the party that vilified the Vietnam War and the soldiers that fought it, is going to have to respond to the allegations in a new book questioning his medals and service in that far-away land. Drudge has the goods:
A veterans group seeking to deeply discredit Democrat John Kerry's military service will charge in the new bombshell book UNFIT FOR COMMAND:

Two of John Kerry's three Purple Heart decorations resulted from self-inflicted wounds, not suffered under enemy fire.

All three of Kerry's Purple Hearts were for minor injuries, not requiring a single hour of hospitalization.

A "fanny wound" was the highlight of Kerry's much touted "no man left behind" Bronze Star.

Kerry turned the tragic death of a father and small child in a Vietnamese fishing boat into an act of "heroism" by filing a false report on the incident.

Kerry entered an abandoned Vietnamese village and slaughtered the domestic animals owned by the civilians and burned down their homes with his Zippo lighter.

Kerry's reckless behavior convinced his colleagues that he had to go -- becoming the only Swift Boat veteran to serve only four months.

It's strange how liberals are now going to have to defend these actions, whether true or not, that are the same claims they would consistently level against Vietnam veterans. It's odd how the biggest quality (Vietnam vet) that the democrats are now touting is the one that they railed against 30 years ago.
