Swiftboat Veterans for “truth”

So, the Swiftboat Veterans for Truth (more acurately “liars who will trample over anything resembling the truth get their man elected”) have struck again.

Appearantly they’ve been circulating a letter questioning Kerry’s service supposedly signed by about 300 swift boat veterans. The problem is, more than one of the veterans named didn’t give consent for their names to be used, they weren’t even asked. Even if they were asked, they wouldn’t have consented.

One vet saw the letter and contacted some of the other vets listed. Of the dozen he contacted 3 hadn’t given permission. Hmm, wonder how many of the other names on the letter have been appropriated.

I went to look at their website which contains quotes like:

We think that he[Kerry] knew he was lying when he made the charges, and we think that they’re unsupportable. We intend to bring the truth about that to the American people.

We believe, based on our experience with him, that he is totally unfit to be the Commander-in-Chief.”

— John O’Neill, spokesman, Swift Boat Veterans for Truth


“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.

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

Now, what am I to make of such righteousness from such complete and utter frauds?
