It's funny how stories and myths repeat themselves every time they find a new audience. Back when John Kerry used to debate O'neill on television, the idea of war crimes would come up. O'neill would charge Kerry of fabricating war crimes, to which Kerry would ask, "did you serve in a free fire zone?" O'neill would respond yes. Kerry would ask, "where there is no distinguishing between civilian and enemy?" O'neill would respond yes, not realizing that he had just agreed with Kerry's entire argument.<br><br>Now people are trying to rewrite the history of the matter and claim that Kerry was defaming veterans for commiting horrible attrocities. The fact of the matter (as prooven over and over again) is that soldiers in Vietnam were ordered to committ attrocities with concepts like free-fire zones. John Kerry was trying to expose the problems in the command structure that dehumanized American soldiers.<br><br>Now what are O'neill and the like trying to do? They are trying to pawn off responsibility for the failure of Americna judgement in Vietnam on John Kerry, the man principled enough to say something about it. What a twisted country we live in where people part and parcel of the military complex can't take responsibility for their own actions.<br><br>What ever happened to that old idea? Personal responsibility?<br><br>-- Charlie Alpha Roger Yankee Whiskey<br>
If ABC wanted the facts about Kerry and this story, why didn't they just hop a cab to Kerry Campaign Headquarters and ask him to sign Form 180 authorizing the release of his military records? <br><br>****************<br><br>[color:blue]VOTE</font color=blue>[color:red] for President George W.

Like Gary said, what records are you looking for? Unless you're specific, Kerry can spit out documents from here to eternity and you'll still claim he hasn't released everything. How do we know all of Bush's records have been released? Oh right, they haven't.<br><br>
I still don't understand why this effects the Nightline story and the O'Neill lies about the Silver Star award and the Navy's after action breif.<br><br><br>http://www.washingtontimes.com/functions/print.php?StoryID=20040818-121345-3874r<br><br>< snip ><br><br> Mr. Meehan, acknowledging that Mr. Kerry has not signed Standard Form 180, said the records have all been laid out nonetheless.<br> "Has he signed the form?" he asked. "No. What he's signed is his release of privacy to the United States Navy to turn over his entire military record and he's posted it up on his Web site, so the whole world can see his entire military record."<br> Mr. O'Neill, though, said the campaign has acknowledged in the past it that has withheld some records.<br> "That's a lie or a carefully calculated set of words," he said yesterday in a telephone interview. "He continues to conceal, for example, his medical records. He's provided virtually none of his medical records, only an interpretation of them by a friendly physician."<br> Mr. O'Neill said the key is Standard Form 180, which, if Mr. Kerry signed it, would let reporters or anyone else write the Defense Department to ask for all of his military records.<br> "If he executes Standard Form 180, he would no longer be the gatekeeper, the gatekeeper would be the U.S. military." <br><br><br>< snip ><br><br> At the White House, press secretary Scott McClellan said he couldn't say specifically whether Mr. Bush signed Standard Form 180, but the president did request and release his own military records in February.<br> "I don't believe he signed any form, but he did authorize making his military records available publicly," Mr. McClellan said. "We have released all the records, and reporters were allowed to look at his medical records as well." <br><br>
