Mona Charen: The reckoning: "In 2004, the jig is up. Vietnam veterans who have seethed for decades about Kerry's treachery are getting their licks in. Kerry's lies (such as the shameful declaration that the memory of being in Cambodia in 1968 'is seared in me') have been exposed. Kerry's grotesque and deceitful 1971 testimony before the United States Senate about the war -- calling American soldiers 'monsters' -- has been remembered.

"How does this connect to Dan Rather? Aside from Kerry, there is no man more responsible for libeling Vietnam veterans and derivatively, America, than Dan Rather. As B.G. Burkett and Glenna Whitley document in 'Stolen Valor' (must reading), Rather produced a program for CBS in 1988 called 'The Wall Within' (see 'The First Rathergate' by Anne Morse in National Review Online). "
Yes, indeed.
