  1. The books says no one has said Bullshit. Well that is no longer true. Bullshit! As an Vet of 1968 I am saddened, angry and repulsed at what has happened to this man who gave all to his country.

  2. As I read Three Days in August, I grew increasingly disgusted with the glaring lack of follow through on several key issues. There were no hard facts to support the accusations. And, testimony that would have confirmed Stewart’s statements was not pursued time and time again.

    Why wasn’t the first cab driver located and interviewed? Why weren’t the woman’s roommates interviewed? Why weren’t full psychiatric/psychological evaluations ordered? Why weren’t other guests of the hotel interviewed about the alleged screams in the night? Why wasn’t her physician brought in to testify? Why weren’t the other guests at the wedding she attended shortly after the alleged events interviewed? Why weren’t there any women on the panel? And, why wasn’t the additional evidence taken seriously?

    As a woman, I was disgusted by the accuser’s strategic and evasive actions. She wasn’t as strong as the defendant. But she had opportunities to leave. She had a telephone within reach and never used it – even when she was alone in the room. The timing for changing her appearance and phone number was transparently motivated to build her case. In short, and in her delusional state, she used an extreme and long outdated female victim status to her advantage. As a result, a highly decorated individual, one trusted with our nation’s security, paid a very high price for a poor choice of companions.

    This was not a trial. It was a travesty. Kelly Stewart has my complete support and confidence. Nothing can erase the damage done to him and his family. But, if there is any justice left in this self-serving, liability-wary culture, he will be exonerated.

    I have to wonder if those responsible for investigating these charges would have been more aggressively thorough if it was their careers, personal lives and freedom on the line.
