TOM HARKIN UPDATE: A 1991 Wall Street Journal article about his invented Vietnam service (mentioned below) is now available on the web.
UPDATE: Interestingly, despite being debunked over a decade ago, Harkin appears to still be peddling the bogus Vietnam story. At least, this CNN report from his endorsement of Howard Dean calls him "A Navy veteran who served in Vietnam." And I didn't realize it, but Harkin's charges against Cheney are actually recycled from 2000.
