A TERRIBLE MISTAKE....Hmmm, yet another curiosity about the Swift Boat nutjobs. One of them, Lieutenant Commander George Elliott (Kerry's commanding officer in Vietnam), now says that it was a "terrible mistake" to claim that Kerry didn't deserve his Silver Star.

Let me get this straight: Elliot signed an affadavit and appeared in a TV commercial to accuse Kerry of lying. But now he says it was a mistake. He thinks Kerry was telling the truth after all and he does deserve his Silver Star.

WTF? This wasn't a casual phone interview where he got flustered and misspoke. He signed an affadavit. He allowed them to film him for a television commercial. And now he says it was just a mistake? How do you make a mistake like that? What's going on here?
