My letter to John Kerry

Dear Senator Kerry,

The Swift Boat Vets for Truth have issued to you another statement essentially saying "put up, and we'll shut up." You and your team of lawyers love to claim that the SwiftVets are Republican-funded shills, completely ignoring that half of them are registered Democrats. All the SwiftVets want from you, Senator, is for you to tell the truth about what happened in Vietnam - though I'm sure an apology for this steaming pile would be nice, too.

Personally, speaking as a Gulf War I vet, I feel that you have slammed all vets - not just the Vietnam era vets. Your protests against the Vietnam War were just the beginning. Your Senate voting record - at least the votes for which you bothered to show up - show your continued disdain for the military and those who have served.

Senator Kerry, you have yet to apologize for the lies told in your book The New Soldier and under oath at The Winter Soldier Hearings. Hell, even Hanoi Jane Fonda has made a half-assed attempt at an apology.

You owe us the truth, Senator. More importantly, you owe the soldiers and sailors who fought, bled, and died in Vietnam an apology.

We're waiting.
