    Remember that long campaign where everyone from the Kerry camp was trying to discredit the Swift Boat Veterans?

    Well Kerry's front man ( the one who actually introduced Kerry at the Democrat Convention) has had his Silver Star revoked.

    And it's not because he's serving a 37 month sentence for posession of child pornography.

    Nope.

    Here's the quote from Winter Soldier.

    July 25, 2011 -- John Kerry was introduced at the 2004 Democratic National Convention by Wade Sanders, a retired Navy Captain and former Deputy Assistant Secretary of the Navy who served as a Swift Boat officer in Vietnam. Like Kerry, Sanders was the recipient of a Silver Star for gallantry in action.

    During the 2004 campaign, Sanders functioned as Kerry's lead attack dog against the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, repeatedly denouncing the veterans on the air as liars and comparing them to Nazi propagandists.

    Wade Sanders is currently in Federal prison, serving a 37-month sentence for possessing child pornography. Now the Navy Times reports that Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus has revoked Sanders' Silver Star.

    The highly unusual decision appears unrelated to Sanders' felony conviction.


    A Navy spokesman cited "subsequently determined facts and evidence surrounding both the incident for which the award was made and the processing of the award itself."

    John Kerry has to be hoping this doesn't become a trend.


    It appears only a few outlets have published this. American Thinker, Politico, Boston Globe and Fox.

    I hope it starts getting around on the net. The Swift Boat Vets were called a lot of names and were treated viciously in 2004. Divine justice that the main attack dog for Kerry is sitting in jail for child porn AND having his Silver Star revoked.

    Here's the link to Winter Soldier.

    Kerry is just as big a phoney. Somehow someway his discharge was redone in the 80s.

    What does that have to do with the Swiftboating of John Kerry by a President and Vice President who never sniffed Viet Nam?

    By swiftboating, you, of course, mean telling the truth about John Kerry.

    Since when is that a bad thing?

    And it has everything to do with the credibility of John Kerry that his spokesperson on the matter is completely uncredible, much like himself.

    Granted, since the 2004 election is over and Senator Kerry isnt President, I don't care that much about ths issue. It's good to see errors being corrected though.

    The lies told about Kerrys honorable military service by two candidates who ducked combat were some of the most despicable ever told

    Im fairly confident that Swift Boat veterans would dispute your claim that they were lying or that they avoided combat.

    I am also fairly confident, that when they have one story, and Kerry changed his story every few hours, that Kerry is the one lying through his teeth.
