J'accuse!

Damn, I hate to point to such an nasty hit-piece as R. Emmett Tyrrell's ugly attack against our veterans, but this just has to be said.

Mr. R. Emmett "Bob" Tyrrell hates veterans.

It's a shame, really. But it's true, and it must be said.

Mr. Tyrrell, j'accuse! That's French, by the way. Deal with it.

In defending the so-called and long-ago discredited Swift Boat Veterans for "Truth" (it's difficult to even type that), Mr. Tyrrell thinks that it's not only OK to question a decorated veteran's service, but actually DEFENDS the Swift Boat Liars and their attacks on our service people.

Here's where it gets worse. CNN, the so-called "Most Trusted Name in News", has seen fit to PRINT this jackass's hate-filled commentary.

Oh, how the mighty have fallen.

Shame on CNN for seeing fit to print this dreck. I had to tell them EXACTLY how I feel about the standard bearer of cable TV news sinking to such depths.

You should, too.

Read the piece, think of what it says about every veteran who has ever received a medal for his or her service, and decide for yourself.

Here's my e-mail to CNN.

Something else Mr Tyrrell can 'leave to the professionals', obviously, is any pretense of objective journalism.

The disgusting screed presented on CNN.com "Swiftboating has become a hate term", is little more than right wing hack commentary and far less than what should meet the standards of CNN.

What man, Mr. Tyrrell, would not be justified in defending himself against attacks of the well documented lies of O'Neill and his Republican funded smear merchants? Do you think Senator Kerry is not entitled to vindicate himself? In what distorted version of America is a person not entitled to speak in his own defense?

Why, Mr. Tyrrell, do you hate America?

No veteran should be in the position to have to defend his medals. If they were presented, barring any proof that they were not deserved (AND THERE IS NONE IN SENATOR KERRY'S CASE), they were earned. Period.

Mr Tyrrell has dishonored the service of everyone who has worn the uniform and earned commendations for bravery in combat with his disingenuous and disgraceful hit piece. That said, of course, most of the chickenhawk Bush administration is safe from his attacks.

Mr. R. Emmett Tyrrell is a sad excuse for a writer, an obvious apologist for the Swift Boat Liars and the Bush administration, and a vet-basher. Got a defense for that one?

Why don't we have a look at your service medals, Mr. Tyrrell, and see if they stand up to scrutiny?

How dare CNN print this garbage.
