Veterans React

What happened to PFC Foster Barton of the 1st Cavalry Division has a lot of veterans riled up.

Men's News Daily has a good article by Thomas Segel.

Old Media's utter lack of coverage on this incident is fast becoming a scandal within the veterans' community. While Old Media hardly dispute their preference for Kerry and his "stole-it-from-nutcase-Howard-Dean" antiwar position, this should not be about that, but it is.

Coverage of PFC Foster Barton hurts John Kerry. There is no other way to put it. Just as Rush Limbaugh has said for months: Success in the War on Terror hurts Democrats, failure helps them.

There are many decent Democrats who must be wondering: What has befallen the party of John F. Kennedy, Scoop Jackson, Sam Nunn, Zell Miller and John Breaux?!

Whatever it is, it is rotten to the core.

At any rate, the story of PFC Foster Barton is not going away.

Really, it has just begun.
