Book on Kerry - Unfit for Command
« on: August 05, 2004, 09:43:19 AM »
In a book to be released next week, a verteran's group describes some strange incidents surrounding Kerry's war experience.  The book makes several major claims, such as how Kerry killed a teenager to earn his Silver Star and ordered the slaughter of small animals.  What do you think about the validity of this book, and how will it effect the election?

Also, here is a commerical the vets have put together to further discredit Kerry.  I can't hear it because I am in the library, so I don't know what they are saying.

It will have to be taken with a large grain of salt if for no other reason than it is reported on drudge.  The drudge record is less than sparkling.

McCain condemned this nonsense.  hopefully that will allow it to be seen for what it is.

Why would a review on Amazon make it legit?  Anyone can put a review on Amazon.

that would be putting it VERY mildly.  he still is a good source of news as long as you know to view a lot of it with a skeptical eye.


Drudge definitely leans right.

Because I'm a referring to the editorial review.  I'm not saying the information in the book is ligit, I'm saying the book is comming out and much of the information Drudge says is going to be in the book, will be.  Whether or not the info is true is a different story.
