DUers are going to be calling in. How dare John attack their War hero. Snicker Snicker - I can't believe the Dems' use Kerry as their version of a war hero. Pathetic.

Kerry's spokesman was pathetic - I wonder why Meehan didn't show himself?

I read this morning the Kerry camp recieved 150 pages from the Navy.

They have only posted 13 pages on the web.

We need to see all the other pages.

O'Neill: Not here to debate the war, but if some say they committed war crimes there are less than 1 percent and that is the issue. Whether that was sanctioned and it was not.

I wish I wasn't as work. I am stuck in a cube so I depend on Free Republic for info. I believe John O'Neill was terrific too when he debated Kerry in the 70's.

O'Neill:

The Bush campaign has never contacted him. The other people he served with do not want to engage in partisan politics.

O'Neill says he personally hopes the democrats nominate someone else so there's a real choice because Kerry is not fit to be president.

He is refuting the Kerry's book,now a Catholic WW2 vet is calling him a liar when he calls himself a practicing Catholic.Called himself a war criminal now calls himself a war herp O'neill says.Now a nurse is saying they committed atrocities...heard the guys talk in the waiting room.She is hysterically pro Kerry,says he did get an annullment.

O'Neill is passionate and firm.He doesn't touch the Catholic stuff.He is not a partisan..he just says Kerry isn't fit to be to be CIC.War crime charges are false and that Kerry has wildly exagerrated his war record.

Next caller: Male dem who claims he is a vet who will not vote for Kerry now that he's hearing about the Kerry war crimes charges.

Caller says when he hears about atrocities charge, it was never American policy to engage in that and he's offended.

He holds up the Kerry 1972 book again. Says the Kerry campaign does not list it on his website.

He wrote it, it's part of his record. Put it there so people can see it.

Caller: Dem says he's not voting for Kerry due to his statements that Vietnam Vets were war criminals. He was there and knows that wasn't true.

O'Neil talks 'The New Soldier'.....false claims of war crimes. Kerry should put that book on his website.

In order to get an annulment from the Catholic Church you have to go before a tribunal and state your case and THEY are the ones that make the decision. If Kerry did this and they agreed then he did get one. We need to know if he did this.

O'Neil: "People get killed in war. It's a crime to libel American boys saying they committed war crimes. I defy anybody to name a single war crime, and Kerry couldn't name one either."

Another Vietnam Vet caller agrees with O'Neil.

WE let the Vietnamese people & Cambodians down by leaving.

O'Neil urges people to go to Wintersoldier.com to read the Winter Soldier!

Yeah, and he was terrific. He explained how he was NEVER contacted by the Bush/Cheney Campaign. He also said that through the years he was contacted by Kerry's opponents in his political races but refused to get involved. He even had opportunities to get into politics through the years but declined. But, he just does not feel that John Kerry is fit to be the Commander in Chief for the U.S. troops all over the world.

Personally I've wanted to keep away from the religious aspect of Kerry's issues, as does O'Neill.

Having said that, I recently read that he's definitely put out the idea he has received an annulment, however a couple newspaper articles from 2003 noted he refused to confirm it.

I do think if he's made the issue public and given out an impression that something is so when it is not, that is fair game.

I was pleased that O'Neill raised the issue of Kerry's quick accumulation of purple hearts for very minor injuries.

The timing couldn't be better in the wake of the Kerry records or lack thereof brouhaha.

Kerry can just look to himself for having to face this criticism. He's decided to run on his Vietnam vet status and he's thrown in slamming Cheney and Rove by name for not going. He's asked for this scrutiny.
