So, There Was No Connection
WASHINGTON - Two former Vietnam prisoners of war who appear in ads attacking Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry were appointed by the Bush administration to a panel advising the Department of Veterans Affairs.It's so brazen.
The former POWs in the ad, Kenneth Cordier and Paul Galanti, serve on the VA's 12-member Former POW Advisory Committee. VA Secretary Anthony Principi appointed Cordier in 2002 and Galanti in 2003.

Of all the Vietnam vets that could be on the committee, 2 of the 12 are from the Swiftboat Partisans for Mr. Bush.
Yeah, I'm so sure there was no connection.
You're left with your mouth open watching these people operate.
