    I glanced at your screen name and thought the Senator himself was replying to me!

    However, I must disagree with your point...as I said, if he coordinated a media push to get the word out ("I am releasing ALL my records, the ones the Swift Vets have DEMANDED to see!"), it would've created the overhyped, orchestrated atmosphere necessary to shut them up once the truth of his service was known once and for all.

    Yes, we knew he was telling the truth. Yes, we knew they were lying. And yes, we knew most of this had already come out in the various other records he had released. But as far as these "final" records, surely you can see how playing this to the hilt would've been a political home run. Especially in politics, it's how you choreograph the truth that makes it stick.
