The truth of the matter is ...

...as Mr. Reynolds correctly puts it, "Media spin notwithstanding, it was Kerry, not the swiftboaters, who had to retract falsehoods.

Update: Ed Driscoll points out The Greatest Hollywood Digital Special Effects Job In History

Yes, how did the Swift Vets, on their budget, talk Industrial Light & Magic into digitally inserting Kerry into footage of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations back in 1971, and pay Rich Little for doing an outrageously over-the-top Boston Brahmin accent? (But c'mon Rich--JJJJJennnghis Kahn? isn't that a bit too much? Nobody will believe it!) To complete the ultimate scam, ILM then digitally inserted Kerry, much like Hollywood's Forrest Gump a decade ago, onto the set of the Dick Cavett Show from that same year. And they talked C-Span into running that footage in 2004. Amazing!
