The Truth Hurts
Wow. Now we find out that Hoffman, one of the co-founders of the pro-George W.

The commander, apparently knowing he needn't follow an unlawful order, refused. See story here (requires registration - use dailykos, dailykos for ID/password)
No wonder these guys were so stung by Kerry's '71 testimony. The Truth Hurts.
