Kerry is pressuring the Swifties

"They lied and lied and lied about everything," Mr. Kerry says in an interview in his Senate office. "How many lies do you get to tell before someone calls you a liar? How many times can you be exposed in America today?"

Sen. Kerry in yesterday's NYT claims he was in Cambodia for Christmashere:
So they have returned, for instance, to the question of Cambodia and whether Mr. Kerry was ever ordered to transport Navy Seals across the border, an experience that he said made him view government officials, who had declared that the country was not part of the war, as deceptive.

The Swift boat group insisted that no boats had gone to Cambodia. But Mr. Kerry's researcher, using Vietnam-era military maps and spot reports from the naval archives showing coordinates for his boat, traced his path from Ha Tien toward Cambodia on a mission that records say was to insert Navy Seals.

Who is Mr. Kerry's researcher?

Of course, plenty of disappointed and angry Democrats would like to know why Mr. Kerry did not defend himself so strenuously before the election. He had posted some military documents on his campaign's Web site and had allowed reporters to view his medical records but resisted open access to them as unnecessarily intrusive.

Mr. Kerry and his defenders say that they did not have the extensive archival material, and that it was too complicated to gather in the rapid pace of a campaign. He was caught off guard, he says; he had been prepared to defend his antiwar activism, but he did not believe that anyone would challenge the facts behind his military awards. "We should have put more money behind it," Mr. Kerry says now. "I take responsibility for it; it was my mistake. They spent something like $30 million, and we didn't. That's just a terrible imbalance when somebody's lying about you."

I think if a Man is telling the truth he could go on the record and support his side of the story. Kerry and the Dems did not. They ignored the Switfies (and the Blogsphere). And when a Man is lying he tries to run from it. To clam the Swifties had $30 million to fight the campaign. Didn't Mr. Kerry have money left over from his campaign ($75 million?).
I hope JFK honors his Brother-In-Arms this weekend. I would like for The Senator and John O'Neil to set the record straight and answer the questions on Kerry's Swift boat service.

God Bless the Switfties. Thanks for their service. I'm glad they came out in May 2004 to raise the questions about Sen. Kerry's war record and his actives after. I still have chills down my spine when I hear his "Gengas Khan" remarks at the senate hearings. Our solders are not war criminals. I was a teen back then and I knew John Kerry was lying.

Froggy posts over at BlackFive now. But back in August 2004 in FroggyRuminations his posts on Vietnam, the Seals and Swiftboats were informative here.. The blogs like his saved the day and brought out the truth. The MSM (like CBS and the Memos)were asleep at the wheel. Check out Froggys Archive. Great read.

Talk about war crimes. The NYT (here) have another article on the Marines on the killing spree last November. I hate to see the MSM already claim the Marines guilty. Let the tribunal begin.
