A new bombshell book written by the man who took over John Kerry’s Swift Boat makes the charge that of John Kerry’s three Purple Heart decorations two (#1 and #3) resulted from self-inflicted wounds — not suffered under enemy fire.
These new accusations about Kerry’s increasingly controversial Purple Hearts are outlined in detail for the first time in Unfit for Command: Swift Boat Veterans Speak Out Against John Kerry.
That’s only the tip of the iceberg.
The book will not be unleashed until next month by Regnery (a HUMAN EVENTS sister company), but as a result of being featured on the Drudge Report and on Fox News, the book has already hit #2 on the AMAZON sales chart — on the eve of the Kerry acceptance speech in Boston.
Swift Boat Veterans bristled after Kerry’s campaign used a photograph of John Kerry and 19 other Coastal Division 11 Swift boat officers [taken at Ton Sun Nuht Air Base on January 22, 1969] in a pro-Kerry advertisement.
Unfit quotes William Shumadine, a member of the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth pictured in the photograph:
“John Kerry’s use of a photograph with his nineteen comrades, with knowledge that eleven of them comdemn him and six who cannot or do not want to be involved, is a complete misreprentation to the public and a total fraud.”
