The Washington Post Is On The Kerry/Cambodia Story

What kind of coverage is the Christmas in Cambodia story getting in one of the most influential papers in the country?

Update: Via Allah and LGF (who credits Powerline and Hugh Hewitt) there is a mention of Kerry and Cambodia in this June 2003 campaign article from The Washington Post

And who is he, really?

A close associate hints: There’s a secret compartment in Kerry’s briefcase. He carries the black attache everywhere.

Asked about it on several occasions, Kerry brushed it aside. Finally, trapped in an interview, he exhaled and clicked open his case.

“Who told you?” he demanded as he reached inside. “My friends don’t know about this.”

The hat was a little mildewy. The green camouflage was fading, the seams fraying.

“My good luck hat,” Kerry said, happy to see it. “Given to me by a CIA guy as we went in for a special mission in Cambodia.”

Kerry put on the hat, pulling the brim over his forehead. His blue button-down shirt and tie clashed with the camouflage. He pointed his finger and raised his thumb, creating an imaginary gun. He looked silly, yet suddenly his campaign message was clear: Citizen-soldier. Linking patriotism to public service. It wasn’t complex after all; it was Kerry.

He smiled and aimed his finger: “Pow.”
