Not only did he forfeit all his journalistic integrity (The Tech does better fact checking than this), but he did it in pursuit of a despicable story. George W. Bush is not a great president. There is ample proof of this. If you want to impugn his credibility, why not draw attention to the fact that his administration either lied about their intelligence (no pun intended) during the leadup to the war in Iraq or they are unforgivably incompetent? I don't consider myself too far to the left, either. I'm usually the only guy in the room giving W any credit, but I still feel deceived by him and his cabal. So why are we still talking about Vietnam? The continuing abuse of history by both the press and the Kerry campaign is symptomatic of why American voters are so ill-informed.
