C-SPAN to Broadcast Old Kerry Anti-war Testimony
NewsMax ^

Posted on 03/21/2004 2:26:45 PM PST by GulliverSwift

John Kerry’s controversial anti-Vietnam War testimony is taking one step closer to haunting him during his presidential bid.

C-SPAN has announced that it plans to present it Sunday night at 6:30 and 9:30 p.m. EST.

This could be political dynamite for the liberal senator and presumptive Democratic nominee for president.

This is the testimony where Kerry, a young veteran of the Vietnam War, accused his fellow soldiers of a string of atrocities.

Since the April 22, 1971, testimony has come to light, Kerry has tried every way he knows to play it down or minimize it.

Sunday night, millions of Americans will have the opportunity to see it in the candidate's own words before Sen. William Fulbright's Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

Set your VCRs and computer TV cards. Some soundbites would be nice as well.

Here's one sentence that I got from somewhere else, although it would be nice to hear it.

He never said who told him this, and later backed away from it:

"They told the stories at times they had personally raped, cut off ears, cut off heads, taped wires from portable telephones to human genitals and turned up the power, cut off limbs, blown up bodies, randomly shot at civilians, razed villages in fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan, shot cattle and dogs for fun, poisoned food stocks, and generally ravaged the countryside of South Vietnam in addition to the normal ravage of war,"

Some FReepers have the whole transcript of his testimony at Wintersoldier

Meet the Press has the entire video available for you? I don't think so. And why would liberal reporters at NBC want to unearth and talk about what Kerry said?
