Time To Put More Pressure On David Brinkley

We were told that John Kerry couldn't release his Vietnam journals because his biographer, Douglas Brinkley, has exclusive access to them. Not true, says Brinkley; Kerry can show his journals to anyone he likes. The only stipulation is that anyone who uses them must cite Brinkley's book.
Of course. it is scandalous that the Old Media aren't howling for Kerry to not only release the journals, but also sign an SF-180, which would authorize the Navy Department to make all his military records available to the public.
But there is another opening here: why doesn't Brinkley call Kerry's bluff and release all relevant notes in his possession. Kerry would be in no position to complain.
