Ollie North gives it to John Kerry:

When Tim Russert asked about your claim that you and others in Vietnam committed “atrocities,” instead of standing by your sworn testimony, you confessed that your words “were a bit over the top.” Does that mean you lied under oath? Or does it mean you are a war criminal? You can’t have this one both ways, John. Either way, you’re not fit to be a prison guard at Abu Ghraib, much less commander in chief.

The “a bit over the top” words of John Kerry include accusations that U.S. troops including himself had “personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs,… razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan,… and generally ravaged the country side of South Vietnam.”
