Scathing New Ad Blasts Kerry's War Record

HUMAN EVENTS has obtained a copy of a scorching new television advertisement addressing Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry’s record in Vietnam that has been produced by Swift Boat Veterans for the Truth.

The group is a non-partisan “527” organization whose membership is limited to former military officers and enlisted men who served in Vietnam on Navy Swift Boats or affiliated commands.

The group says, “Senator Kerry misrepresented his own actions and those of his fellow officers and men.”

Swift Boat Veterans for Truth is chaired by Rear Admiral Roy Hoffman, USN (ret), and includes on its steering committee John O’Neill, the naval officer who took over John Kerry’s Swift Boat in Vietnam and who is the author Unfit for Command: Swift Boat Veterans Speak Out Against John Kerry, an upcoming book from Regnery, a sister company of Human Events.

In Unfit, O’Neill reports that what he learned convinced him — and the majority of veterans who served directly with Kerry — that “John Kerry was and is unfit for command as a Naval officer, let alone as commander in chief of the Untied States.”
