Step Forward You Cowards!

Who are the two unnamed cowards that have attempted to smear Senator John McCain in the New York Times? This is how they are identified in the Times “news “story:

"In interviews, the two former associates said they joined in a series of confrontations with Mr. McCain, warning him that he was risking his campaign and career. Both said Mr. McCain acknowledged behaving inappropriately and pledged to keep his distance from Ms. Iseman. The two associates, who said they had become disillusioned with the senator, spoke independently of each other and provided details that were corroborated by others.”
Exactly how broad is the term “associates”? Several former staffers from the 2000 McCain campaign have come forward today to say they never heard of Ms Iseman and told the New York Times there was nothing to the story back in December. But of course that did not make it into the "news" story! Howard Opinsky, McCains 2000 press spokesmen and Mike Murphy both said today they were not the New York Times sources and said there was no truth to the Times story. Mike Murphy is quoted as telling the Times: "[A] Times reporter called me late last year and I said I knew nothing about it," Murphy said in response to an e-mail from Politico. "I think [the] story is a huge pile of nothing that is an embarrassment to The New York Times."

So who are these cowards who hide in the shadows and defame an American hero? Come on out and identify yourself !
