The news of the day...and my own peculiar take on it...

More Kudos... the Washington Post...

It appears they've made an honest effort to get to the bottom of at least the Rassmann incident (and on the front page)...There are still a lot of other items they haven't touched - most especially the easily proveable lie that Kerry told repeatedly about his 1968 Christmas in Cambodia.

But here's the money quote:

"Some of the mystery surrounding exactly what happened on the Bay Hap River in March 1969 could be resolved by the full release of all relevant records and personal diaries. Much information is available from the Web sites of the Kerry campaign and Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, and the Navy archives. But both the Kerry and anti-Kerry camps continue to deny or ignore requests for other relevant documents, including Kerry's personal reminiscences (shared only with biographer Brinkley), the boat log of PCF-94 compiled by Medeiros (shared only with Brinkley) and the Chenoweth diary. [The article notes that Chenoweth read the relevant diary entry aloud to the reporter but did not send him an actualy copy.]

"Although Kerry campaign officials insist that they have published Kerry's full military records on their Web site (with the exception of medical records shown briefly to reporters earlier this year), they have not permitted independent access to his original Navy records. A Freedom of Information Act request by The Post for Kerry's records produced six pages of information. A spokesman for the Navy Personnel Command, Mike McClellan, said he was not authorized to release the full file, which consists of at least a hundred pages."

So the question now is how long will Kerry stonewall the Washington Post now that they've added their voice to those already asking for a full release of his records?

UPDATE: Glenn is all over it...Go there to get even more...
