Swift Boat Veterans for Truth has been discredited

Larry Thurlow, the primary critic of John Kerry's war record, won a bronze star at the same time as Kerry, for being under the same fire that he claimed Kerry lied about.

Thurlow's records, obtained by the Post under the Freedom of Information Act, include references to ''enemy small arms and automatic weapons fire'' directed at all five boats in the flotilla that day. In his Bronze Star citation, Thurlow is praised for helping a damaged Swift boat ''despite enemy bullets flying about him.''

Thurlow described Kerry's Bronze Star citation as ''totally fabricated,'' saying ''I never heard a shot.''

Thurlow said he lost his Bronze Star citation more than 20 years ago. He said he would not authorize release of his military records because he feared the Kerry campaign would discredit him.
