67. The "not too swift" boat veterans said that he took back the retraction
Edited on Sun Aug-08-04 05:01 PM by Zorra
"Captain George Elliott describes an article appearing in todays edition of the BOSTON GLOBE by Mike Kranish as extremely inaccurate and highly misstating his actual views. He reaffirms his statement in the current advertisement paid for by the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, Captain Elliott reaffirms his affidavit in support of that advertisement, and he reaffirms his request that the ad be played.

Not Elliot. Why is there not a direct quote from Elliot?

Not too swift boat veterans for Bu$h is a right wing republican financed organization designed to lie for specific propaganda purposes.

Bu$h was AWOL.

Kerry Service Record

Link to extensive service record of Kerry and "service record" of Bu$h

Once again: John Kerry volunteered for active duty in Vietnam. Bu$h went AWOL from the National guard, and never, ever saw Vietnam.
