Kerry & MIAs

Saw this yesterday, but lost the link, then found it agian today on The Corner:

From the Village Voice:

Senator John Kerry, a decorated battle veteran, was courageous as a navy lieutenant in the Vietnam War. But he was not so courageous more than two decades later, when he covered up voluminous evidence that a significant number of live American prisoners—perhaps hundreds—were never acknowledged or returned after the war-ending treaty was signed in January 1973.

The Massachusetts senator, now seeking the presidency, carried out this subterfuge a little over a decade ago— shredding documents, suppressing testimony, and sanitizing the committee's final report—when he was chairman of the Senate Select Committee on P.O.W./ M.I.A. Affairs.

Yikes. I'll be interested to see how that shapes up. Personally, I'm completely disillusioned with all politicians of all parters, given that none of them keep their promises or seem to have ideals which match up with mine.
