Hugh Hewitt has more on John Kerry’s fishy Christmas in Cambodia story, including comments from a former covert operative who says that there’s no way in hell Kerry’s story could be true. Just on the face of it Kerry’s story stinks. In order for Kerry to be telling the truth one would have to believe that the CIA would deposit a covert operative into Cambodia by traveling across a heavily defended and fortified river on a swift boat that was not designed for stealth and was owned by the Navy, that the CIA agent in question would not only announce that he was such but also give his hat to the Lieutenant in command of the boat, and that 30 years later there wouldn’t be any proof of this other than the a story that has already changed several times over the years.
It’s sometimes amazing how sheep-like the Democrats have become these days. Such a tale, if made into a James Bond movie, would stretch credibility. In real life, it would be asinine. Yet that isn’t even the half of it. We’re also supposed to believe Iraq was a war of choice, and America should never go into a war of choice, but Kerry would still vote for that war of choice if he could do it again. Such a twist of logical contradiction would be enough to drive the best logician into fits. Kerry’s positions are incoherent.
Kerry is trying to follow in Clinton’s footsteps, except Clinton was both more magnetic and a better liar. Unfortunately Kerry should leave the obfuscation to the experts and just admit his story was a fraud.
