Mr. Kerry, Open Up Those Unreleased Military Records

The Mainstream Media continues to avoid this topic, but we, at The Senescent Man Blog, remain perplexed as to why Kerry's military records remain sealed, why he refuses to release them to the press, and why the press is giving him a pass on the issue.

One of our favorite bloggers picked up on the fact that during the recent interview by Tom Brokaw on the NBC Nightly News, Kerry was asked if he knew that George W. Bush had a higher IQ than Kerry. In responding, Kerry revealed that it would be difficult for someone to make that comparison since his (Kerry's) records were "not public."

Excerpt from the actual interview is as follows:

Brokaw: Someone has analyzed the President's military aptitude tests and yours, and concluded that he [Bush] has a higher IQ than you do.

Kerry: That's great. More power. I don't know how they've done it, because my record is not public. So I don't know where you're getting that from.
Now comes along this interesting (but I must add uncorroborated) accusation that Kerry is not allowing his record to be made public since he had been dishonorably discharged due to his having given aid and comfort to the enemy. Purportedly he was subsequently given amnesty through President Jimmy Carter's amnesty program which had been offered to all Vietnam era draft dodgers and such.

Let's put this issue to rest by opening up Kerry's record.

Mr. Kerry: Open up your military records. It appears that you can hide your records but you can't run on them.
