Swift Research by the Post

The Washington Post reports this morning that Kerry critic and best-selling book author Larry Thurlow’s own Bronze Star “praises him for providing assistance to a damaged Swift boat “despite enemy bullets flying about him,” according to military records. Thurlow has been critical of Kerry, saying the Democratic nominee’s Bronze Star was earned falsely, because he says none of the swift boats were ever under fire.

Thurlow is hesitant to call his own Bronze Star fraudulent, however, because he says he always thought that it was awarded “for coming to the rescue of the boat that was mined,” further adding that “this casts doubt on anybody’s awards. It is sickening and disgusting.”

If the claims of Swift Boat Veterans for Truth didn’t sound spintastic before, they have accomplished that now. While Thurlow has certainly dedicated his life this year to debunking what he feels are Kerry’s false qualifications for the award, he can’t, unfortunately, return the Bronze Star he received for the very same reasons as Kerry.

He admits he lost the sacred article 20 years ago.
