Winter Soldier Syndrome

Michelle Malkin takes a look at how the Scott Thomas Beauchamp case fits into the line of “winter soldier” storytellers, starting with John Kerry. I agree with Michelle’s analysis:

Winter Soldier Syndrome will only be cured when the costs of slandering the troops outweigh the benefits. Exposing Scott Thomas Beauchamp and his brethren matters because the truth matters. The honor of the military matters. The credibility of the media matters.

Think it doesn’t make a difference? Imagine where Sen. John Kerry would be now if the Internet had been around in 1971.Read the entire piece. I remembered the cases she cited, but seeing them all compiled in one place it still surprised me to see how many have hoodwinked the media just in the past few years.
