More on Swiftboats
By Mike Rappaport

I also saw the Leher interview with Tom Oliphant and John O'Neill over the swiftboats controversy that Tom recounts immediately below. I have not really been following the controversy, but based on that interview, I am led to take the story seriously. Not only was Oliphant's rhetoric overblown and his evidence underwhelming, but O'Neil came across substantive, calm, and in command of the facts. I would not be surprised if the Kerry campaign is worried.
