Swift Boat Vets ain’t too thrill with their “comrade-in-arms”

This is sure to become a growing story. I’d be interesting to see if “60 Minutes” ever does a segment on this subject (I'm not holding my breath).

Swift Boat Veterans for Truth was launched on May 4, 2004 at a press conference at the National Press Club in Washington. As of May 17, 220 of the 229 Swift boat veterans contacted by the group have agreed to sign an open letter to Senator John F. Kerry that challenges his fitness to serve as America's Commander-in-Chief. Signers of the letter include the entire chain of command above Lt. John Kerry in Vietnam: Lt. Commander Grant Hibbard, Lt. Commander George Elliott, Captain Charles Plumly, Captain Adrian Lonsdale USCG, and Rear Admiral Roy Hoffman.

The book Unfit For Command by John O’Neil (due to be released very soon) will chronicle John Kerry’s four-month tour of duty in ‘Nam. Sure to be an eye opener.

The two web sites related to this whole story are here & here.
