The Village Voice: Features: When John Kerry's Courage Went M.I.A. by Sydney H. Schanberg: "enator John Kerry, a decorated battle veteran, was courageous as a navy lieutenant in the Vietnam War. But he was not so courageous more than two decades later, when he covered up voluminous evidence that a significant number of live American prisoners-perhaps hundreds-were never acknowledged or returned after the war-ending treaty was signed in January 1973.
The Massachusetts senator, now seeking the presidency, carried out this subterfuge a little over a decade ago- shredding documents, suppressing testimony, and sanitizing the committee's final report-when he was chairman of the Senate Select Committee on P.O.W./ M.I.A. Affairs. "
Of course. How could the darling of the Anti-War movement ever admit that there were real heroes, who continued to be heroes and didn't give in to the Marches of the American Chickens.
