Kerry's Swift Discharge?

Rumors and anticipation are swirling around the SwiftVets because they may be about to torpedo John Kerry. On their discussion board, it was hinted that they may have evidence John Kerry got an "Other Than Honorable" discharge from the Navy.

I think there may be something to this. A couple weeks ago, I went to a screening of "Stolen Honor" and there was a veteran that spoke afterward about this very story. I can't remember his name, but he was a classmate of John O'Neill at Annapolis and flew helicopter missions in support of the swift boats in the same operating area as Kerry. Don't think he knew JFK himself, but knew a bunch of the other guys, his time in Vietnam actually overlapped a little with Kerry's.

Anyway, he mentioned that there was some question about Kerry's discharge that was suspicious and that it was being looked into. He said something about there being a "convening authority" in relation to Kerry's discharge (which I took to mean a disciplinary board), and he said that was "highly unusual".

NRO is on this. Redstate is all over it. So is PoliPundit. So is Powerline. I think Rush may have mentioned it today too.
