    It is Secret Service protocol.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    And no, it's not. The notion that Kerry's wounds were self inflicted is a lie.

    That is not in dispute. I believe the question would be when it became Secret Service protocol.

    Yes, but you knew that headline was false and used it anyway.

    John Kerry is a liar.

    And you know this how? Self-inflicted or not he was awarded purple hearts for what took a small bandaid to fix. Get three and you're back to the world. That said I hate that POS more for what he did upon coming home then all the lies he told about his time in Nam.

    It's difficult discussing this with folks who weren't there, or even a glint in their grandparent's eye at the time.

    I concur.

    Kerry's service in Vietnam is his problem. I bled more on just one patrol in the bush just being cut up by elephant grass than Kerry ever bled during his entire incomplete tour of duty in-country. Even the leeches took more of my my blood than Kerry ever bled.

    It was Kerry's actions after his active duty service that I have a problem with.

    you mean when he testified in a hearing involving potential u.s war crimes in Vietnam? or his opposition to the war and support of the anti war movement.

    Ah. So it became Secret Service protocol between 2009 and 2013.
