POLITICS: More on the Swift Boat Story

Captain Ed has the latest. Read for yourself.

UPDATE: I still think this is a relatively minor story, as are Kerry's and Bush's service records generally, although it's a bigger deal because Kerry's made his four-month tour in Vietnam the centerpiece of his campaign. But one thing that's really clear here from reading the two sides' letters is that the Swift Boat Vets have much better lawyers than the Kerry/Edwards camp does (which is unsurprising if you look at John O'Neill's resume). The Swift Boat Vets' letter is far more detailed and deals directly with the issues, while the Kerry/Edwards letter seems obsessed with non sequiturs like who served on which boat and who filled out particular forms.
