Does Kerry Have Boorda's Sense Of Honor?

Yesterday I brought up Thomas Lipscomb's article about the irregularities surrounding John Kerry's awards from Vietnam. Today he brings up another interesting tidbit related to that issue. It seems that John Lehman, the Reagan administration Navy Secretary whose signature appears on at least one of the revised citations, has no recollection of signing the document.
Asked how the citation could have been executed over his signature without his knowledge, Lehman said: "I have no idea. I can only imagine they were signed by an autopen." The autopen is a device often used in the routine execution of executive documents in government.

This makes it look more likely that the Lehman citation for the Silver Star with the illicit combat V, and possibly the Lehman citation for one of the Bronze Stars, was not authorized and is therefore a fraudulent document.

Who is responsible?

How did the narratives get changed?

Will Kerry release his entire file now?
