With Kerry likely to be the GOP opponent, and with his attempt to wear the mantle of military experience, will this story have legs? Did he really lead the Vietnam POW/MIA pursuit off course? Personally I’m a skeptic of most claims of POW sightings in Vietnam, but was Kerry AWOL on this issue? Did he indeed, as the author alleges, cover “up voluminous evidence that a significant number of live American prisoners—perhaps hundreds—were never acknowledged or returned after the war-ending treaty was signed in January 1973”?
