The source of the accusations that Kerry's war wounds were self-inflicted, that he won his Silver Star by shooting a Viet Cong teenager in the back, and etc., is a small group calling itself "Swift Boat Veterans for Truth."  They are the only source.  They were organized by a Texas PR woman named Merrie Spaeth.  She's a Bush donor and very active in GOP politics.  Ms. Spaeth is also the widow of Tex Lezar, an old friend and supporter of the Bush family dating back to Poppy Bush's Vice-Presidential days.  The late Mr. Lezar was a partner in the law firm of John E. O'Neill, leader of the "Swift Boat Veterans for Truth" and a long-time Kerry antagonist  Mr. O'Neill is an ex-Nixon operative, recruited by that bastion of integrity, Chuck Colson, back in the early 1970s to counter Kerry's criticism of the Vietnam War.  Kerry and O'Neill famously squared off on the Dick Cavett Show, where Kerry is reported to have mopped the floor with O'Neill.

As for what Bob Novak says . . . I'm surprised that man still has a column, much less a prime time news slot.  He is the O. J. Simpson of journalism.  Outing a CIA agent in the field is a federal crime.  Perhaps when the Valerie Plame investigation has at long last run its course, Mr. Novak will finding himself sharing a jail cell with Dick Cheney's Chief of Staff, Scooter Libby.
