Jane Fonda appeared on CNN two weeks ago to explain that she and Kerry might not have even "shaken hands" at a Valley Forge, PA rally where the two were photographed together. But flyers distributed by VVAW for the Operation RAW (Rapid American Withdrawal) list Kerry and Fonda as speakers as well as sponsors.

I have a book in my possession entitled "The Winter Soldier Investigation" published in 1971 by the Veterans Against the Vietnam War. At the beginning of the book, they credit and thank Jane Fonda along with Donald Sutherland and others for contributing to the investigation. In the back of the book is a complete list of military personnel who testified. On the list is Lt. John Kerry. Although there is no testimony by him, he is credited with being there. So did Jane and John lie when they said they didn't really know each other?

She's hoping you won't notice.

You may have a very rare book!

Two questions:

Did Al Hubbard write an introduction?

How does the book differ from the online version?

Kerry acted as a moderator for one of the "panels" at Winter Soldier, but we don't have any record that he testified. There's little doubt Jane and John knew each other, and one of the reasons for WinterSoldier.com is to create a central repository for that sort of evidence.

Fonda did admit during the CNN interview that she and Kerry spoke to the crowd. She mentioned something to the effect that she spoke, Sutherland spoke, etc and that Kerry spoke at the end. Fonda said she didn't remember meeting him and probably never shook hands. Pretty good memory for such an insignificant encounter. LOL

I have always heard they were both there. Kerry was supposed to have been an Emcee of sorts. Jane provided funding for it. Jane saying she didn't formally meet John because they didn't shake hands sounds eerily similar to Clinton saying "I did not have sex with that woman, Monica Lewinsky".

Also proves Hanoi Jane didn't change one single stripe when she became a "born again Christian" and apologized to Vietnam veterans for the things she did. Anymore than John has changed a single stripe since morphing from one of the people who campaigned for the world to desrespect Vietnam veterans in general, but demands respect for being a Vietnam vet today. I find it EXCEPTIONALLY odd that not many people are pointing that out in response to Kerry's preemptive patriotism attacks.
