Kerry releases his military records!


On January 30, John Kerry promised, on national television, to sign Form 180, releasing his full military record to the public.

I'm not sure what the holdup has been exactly, but it appears he's finally done it... I guess.

During an interview yesterday with Globe editorial writers and columnists, the former Democratic presidential nominee was asked if had signed Form SF 180, authorizing the Department of Defense to grant access to all his military records.

''I have signed it," Kerry said. Then, he added that his staff was ''still going through it" and ''very, very shortly, you will have a chance to see it."

So I'm not sure I completely understand that response. I mean I got the "I have signed it" part, but became a bit confused near the part about his staff "still going through it."

Oh well, no matter. I suppose there's no real urgency at this point, right? But if Senator Kerry is serious about another run at the White House (as he appears to be) he has to know that he's going to have to deal with this head-on sooner or later. Why not sooner?

He probably did sign the form, he just didn't send it in.

And he wonders why he lost the election.

I won't hold my breath on it until the Navy actually releases them.

Interesting. Maybe if he was hiding something, he's hoping that releasing his records years before the next election will be enough to let whatever they show blow over.

Or maybe he wasn't hiding anything. Who knows?
