Ministry of Truth 

The Trunk over at Powerline asks why Kerry would prefer to have us believe that he only began opposing the war in 1969, when the Harvard Crimson reports that he began opposing it in 1966.

I think the answer is obvious. Volunteering to serve and then coming back a changed man is a compelling story. But we know that Kerry used his opposition to the war to launch his political career. If he held these opinions prior to volunteering, it takes more than a little shine off that narrative. I doubt that he volunteered solely to bolster his anti-war credibility. But even some of that makes him look less noble and more calculating.
