Friday, August 06, 2004 / News / Nation / Veteran retracts criticism of Kerry: "But yesterday, a key figure in the anti-Kerry campaign, Kerry's former commanding officer, backed off one of the key contentions. Lieutenant Commander George Elliott said in an interview that he had made a ''terrible mistake' in signing an affidavit that suggests Kerry did not deserve the Silver Star -- one of the main allegations in the book. The affidavit was given to The Boston Globe by the anti-Kerry group to justify assertions in their ad and book."
This is inexcusable. It is absolutely inconceivable that a lietuenant commander could "make a mistake" like this, and hastily sign a paper defaming a medal winner. What kind of person is he? So he undercuts and betrays his friends just like Kerry did. This writer is inclined to think that pressure from the Kerry camp and the exchange of some kind of bribe is the real reason for his switcheroo. Nothing else makes sense. Liberals are good at this. This is the way that Teddy Kennedy shut up the family of Mary Jo.
