CQ, Power Line In New York Post

Today's New York Post publishes an op-ed piece written by Power Line's John Hinderaker and Scott Johnson as well as myself on the unanswered questions surrounding John Kerry's Viet Nam narrative. In fact, the Post split the article into two sections -- the data we provided turned out to be so detailed, the Post's editors gave us extra room to fit it all in.

Let me tell you, this represents a personal-best moment for me. Not only did I have the opportunity to work with two of my colleagues and friends from the Northern Alliance, but the experience of working with the supportive and professional editors at the Post made this one of the most pleasant writing experiences of my career. And after working with the great staff at the New York Sun, I can cheerfully tell you that if these gentlemen are any indication, New Yorkers get a bum rap. It's almost enough to make me root for the Yankees. (Almost.)

I hope you enjoy the two articles as much as I have enjoyed sharing the same pages with writers like Deborah Orin and John Podhoretz, whom I understand had something to do with our assignment.
