Kerry's War Stories

National Review: A Swift Blow -- Kerry’s antiwar record stings. by Rich Lowry
Now, of course, Kerry implicitly portrays Vietnam as a noble undertaking, featuring only great acts of bravery by great American men. In his convention speech, Kerry bragged of defending America as a soldier — forgetting that it once was his deeply held conviction that the Vietnam War had nothing to do with defending America. Apparently someone in the Kerry camp thinks that having John Edwards testify to Kerry's gung-ho war exploits has more resonance than celebrating him in this way: "If you want to know John Kerry, spend three minutes with the men who were with him when he threw away his medals and called U.S. soldiers criminals."
