still seeking the truth about kerry

The defeat of John Kerry in the recent election has apparently not eliminated his desire to be president (and I'm sure Teresa hasn't lost her ambition to be first lady either). Therefore, it is good news that the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth are planning to continue their work. The fact is that, while the Swiftees did an amazing job in bringing information about Kerry's Vietnam record to light, their stories were first ignored and then attacked by the liberal media elite who were anxious to get Kerry in office no matter what they had to do (for example, Dan Rather comes to mind here).

"The end of the 2004 presidential election campaign doesn't spell the end of Swift Boat Veterans for Truth, the well-funded alliance of former servicemen that remains dedicated to preventing Sen. John Kerry from becoming president.
The group, which recently changed its name to Swift Boat Veterans and POWs for Truth, plans to convene next month to celebrate its successes and to consider speaking out further about Kerry's military service, his anti-war activities afterward, and other issues, says William E. Franke, who ran the organization's day-to-day operations.
... [Franke] said the swift boat group's members remained frustrated, feeling that the news media did not bore in sufficiently on what he regards as unanswered questions about Kerry's service records."
